    I worked at Bruce Power full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits
    Close to nature/the country

    Cons

    Not worth the pay!
    The longer someone has worked there, the more delusional they are. Management is poor, favorites are common and friends of friends get hired. It's extremely hard to implement processes and change. People are so incredibly phony and unprofessional , its unbelievable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more young people, start replacing the older workforce. Regulate pay to make it more fair Communicate better. Develop your leaders. Be honest with your investors/stakeholders when it comes to communicating actual performance don't play games

    I have been working at Bruce Power full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of potential for career advancement, managers care about employees, outstanding pay and benefits, many great co-workers, out of the rat race of a city.

    Cons

    It's a large corporation located in a small town... there are going to be politics and favourites. Negative stereotype of employees in community from people who don't know better/jealous.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Over a thousand managers and you are bound to find some who don't install accountability in their workgroups or for themselves. Address those individuals.

    Pros

    I have found that working for Bruce power has and is a journey of respect. The work environment and the culture is very professional. I all so find the work interesting in as much as I have never been around a nuclear facility before. I find getting to know the procedures a little challenging but I am coming along in that regard. I enjoy the team work amongst my fellow workers and the helpfulness of the UTLs.

    Cons

    The cafeteria in "B" really needs to be improved or located in a new facility. Also the food is really wanting. I try to eat healthy and I am allergic to gluten. The menu is rather limited in that way.

    Advice to Management

    Also the food is really wanting. I try to eat healthy and I am allergic to gluten. The menu is rather limited in that way. I sometimes find that the supervisors do not take the time to learn about the people they supervise. Not all are like that but some need some coaching on how to get the best out of the people. As a man that has run very large jobs with 20 plus workers I found that a large part of my job was to help the worker be as good as the are capable of being. As a supervisor I came to realise that I had a wealth of experience to draw on I choose to do so as a supervisor.

    I have been working at Bruce Power full-time

    Pros

    Excellent pay, benefits and other employee perks. Management is well trained and lead by example. Plenty of time off and options for banking excess hours worked. t is exciting to work for a world class facility that is proud of its accomplishments.

    Cons

    You need to get used to the high security environment and constant requirement for radiation monitoring, of course this is all for your own protection and protection of the general public. It is a large facility with thousands of employees, however everyone is friendly and it doesn't take long to get to know people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Some staff engagement issues but this is likely due to personality of individual employees. Some have never worked anywhere else and develop issues with entitlement.
