    I have been working at Nordion full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Pay is decent. Benefit is pretty good. Having a good manager or a bad manager makes a big difference.

    Cons

    This company used to be top employer. Due to miss management over the years, the company was sold several times. Now owned by a US firm who is less generous to employees. Future looks deem depends on which department you are in. Limited room for advancement despite good performance. Some management prefers to bring people from outside rather than recognizing own employees.

      I worked at Nordion full-time

      Pros

      The people are fantastic - lasting friendships

      Cons

      The Union roles protect “doggers” and don’t reward the hardest workers. When there are cuts, highly qualified employees are bumped to lower levels or right out the door.

      Advice to Management

      Find a way to keep your most qualified individuals despite the union levels.
