    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Statistics Canada full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Statistics Canada invests a lot into training and developing its employees (if you are an EC) - Interesting work - Overall, good workplace culture. People are generally passionate and very knowledgeable

    Cons

    - Bureaucratic - Getting promoted can be difficult, a lot of people spend their entire career there (without changing their mentality) - Navigating the politics can be frustrating

    Advice to Management

    Create a more supportive environment for talent that questions the status quo. I have witnessed/experienced situations where there was reprisal to some degree for (respectfully) challenging or disagreeing with management.
