    I worked at Hydro One full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Hydro One Brampton. Pros are

    - Great hours from 9 to 5 with 1 hour lunch and 2 breaks
    - Excellent in-house cafeteria that served breakfast and lunch
    -Different places around the building where one can get away and relax on breaks and lunches
    - Competitive pay
    - In-house radio station to break out of the doldrums

    Cons

    - Not much room to advance
    - Quite a few people were quite haughty or snobby but they were also plesant and friendly colleagues as well
    - Hydro One is up for sale so there is uncertainty on which employees will be kept, quite a few people on contract
    - Work culture where longer term employees will transfer the work that they do not want to do unto shorter term employees
    - Work load can be high especially in admin. roles

    Advice to Management

    Reverse the cons
