    I have been working at Ressources naturelles Canada full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work from home, parking at the farm is cheaper than a bus pass, 580 is close to Preston and bars.

    Cons

    Management come and leave on a regular basis, no real sense of direction, nobody can agree on anything

    I have been working at Ressources naturelles Canada full-time

    Pros

    A good place to work, smart co-workers, room for advancement, interesting files. Very good work life balance and a cool location next to Dow's Lake.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic and large size means that there are many layers of approvals and it can often be difficult to figure out where your work is going/what its purpose is.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of sharing information down so that people can see the value of their work.

    I worked at Ressources naturelles Canada part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked at the Geological Survey of Canada, worked for a number of geologists and learned tons. Super friendly environment.

    Cons

    Some work was a little boring like digitally recreating older geological maps however the pay ($14 an hour) was decent for doing dull work on a computer in an air conditioned room in the summer.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, interesting work, smart people, direct impact on public policy. Learning outside of work is valued and education can get paid for.

    Cons

    archaic management structure, things move slowly due to bureaucratic red tape, sometimes the work can be focused too much on process rather than substance.

    Pros

    Great organization with friendly co-workers and interesting work. You really feel like your contributing to Canada's economy. There are plenty of opportunities for advancement or training.

    Cons

    As a government organization it can be quite bureaucratic and some business processes could be improved. Can be quite political at times.

    Advice to Management

    Try and streamline business processes to avoid unnecessary or duplicated work. Consider holding more town halls to encourage more relationships between sectors.
