    I worked at Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Generally nice staff with some traditions that are very inclusive and bring the teams together for food and activities,

    Cons

    Very male-dominated at the top, with some archaic behaviours. Membership has dwindled precipitously.

    Advice to Management

    Apparently, the management and staff has had a huge turnover or been forced out, so, if it is more of the same and you are a woman, don't expect to be promoted.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The flexibility to interface with clients how you see fit, Countless opportunities to grow professionally, and a semi-flexible work day.

    Cons

    Constantly traveling to visit clients makes it difficult to effectively communicate with management on key topics, to network with your co-workers, and to improve the companies own processes.

    Advice to Management

    None. Cons are the nature of the business.

    I worked at Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters

    Pros

    This place was a great place to work before the local leadership was changed. Lots of great challenging work, leading to useful outcomes to the association members, with everyone working together. Unfortunately this did not last. I would have given this a 4 star in past.

    Cons

    After management changed everyone from original team eventually left or was laid off due to negative work culture and lack of leadership. Rating for current situation since 2014.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a local leader that will focus on keeping membership and their team happy and involved.
