Science, Technology, Linux, Earthquakes, Education, Geology, Nuclear. My retirement blog. I was a geophysics engineer with a big utility, doing earthquakes for Ontario.
AECL has been on a hiring spree for the past several years. After some layoffs in 2002/2003, they decided it was time to start rehiring again: 2005 – 3,221 (full-time employees)2006 – 3,604 2007 – 4,135 2008 – 4,800+A 50% increase in employees. All those fresh minds & faces running around....and yet the NRU is still late & way over budget. What are all those extra bodies up to? Maybe they're gearing up to build some new reactors....or make certain business units more attractive for a sale. And those 'old guys'. I'm betting that most of them will be back as very-very-well-paid consultants when those reactors get built. On time. On budget.
I have no idea what those people are doing!
