    I worked at OBSI Canada full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can learn a lot as the company has a lot of intelligent people working there.

    Cons

    Recommendations are non binding. I don't believe they are taken seriously. Firms always negotiate the number down and if they refuse to pay, the ombudsman can't make them.
