    I have been working at The Conference Board of Canada full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Our employees are always getting to meet and work with variety of new colleagues. We produce top of the line research into organizational performance and leadership development. We fully take these practices to heart in our offices, thereby contributing to a harmonious work environment. In-person staff feedback is resoundingly positive.

    Cons

    Any negative sentiments towards our organization and its leadership team must be borne from a sense of entitlement by employees who deserve to, and probably already have had their “positions terminated”. No sweat though, our compassionate HR team are experts in quickly re-hiring the same positions every year to year-and-a-half. Those who have defied the odds and managed to keep their jobs have done so based purely... on recognized merit and nothing else quantifiable. Anyone remotely critical of our employment and/or business practices clearly isn’t on board with our new direction that involves taking everything the previous administration did and intensifying it to a comical degree.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, weather the storm, some other vapid cliché. Let’s all pat each other on the back and continue to proclaim that we’re one of Ottawa’s top employers with a viable business strategy and bright future. We should also invest more in planted Glassdoor company reviews.

    I worked at The Conference Board of Canada full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I think it is safe to assume that the previous posts were written by disgruntled former employees wearing revenge-coloured glasses. It's easy to pick a company apart when you no longer work there and everything didn't go your way. I think the previous comments should all be taken with a grain of salt. - Amazing internal knowledge resources - The opportunity to learn about a lot of issues and topics impacting... Canadians - Great colleagues - Excellent benefits, RSP, and vacation - Supportive management that really care and recognize hard work - Nice office with affordable parking

    Cons

    - Slower moving as a lot of stakeholders can be involved in decision making - Non-profit resources (the learning opportunities, culture, benefits and colleagues make up for this)

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to invest in new ideas, new resources, and recognize and reward hard work and talent
