    Pros

    I started with them 6 months ago. Like many people I was not too sure of what the job was all about and decided to give it a shot anyway. I completed my interview and was invited to the 1 day orientation about the company, its products, how it helps the environment, its customers and employees. I had a conversation with a team lead after and got paired up for the training which lasted about 2 weeks and was fully paid. They use what's called a University/Academy to train you on everything before you start working with customers. I learnt how to conduct energy assessments and started to make a well above average pay based on their rewarding compensation plan. 6 months later I have gotten promoted with raise 2 times and have recently started to train others on the job. Overall the company has some ups and downs like every other growing company but seems to be well financed and a friendly workplace. I worked from the same office as the Senior Leaders and the CEO himself. Eventhough I saw remarks about them, here's my personal experience and what I witnessed. The CEO is established and seems to be driven to grow. He does have flashy cars like the other reviews mention but during my employment I see him work 7 days a week. He was the first in the office everyday. Everyone is pleased around him. His bonuses are beyond generous. He pushes everyone to grow and read books. He talks about his struggles in the business in the past 10 years and how with the help of his team he was able to handle then. I witnessed him finish a Harvard diploma and run the company during the pandemic at the same time with huge growth. He has organized a core team of capable individuals that work like clockwork. So ultimately, you will be working with a team of such driven entrepreneurs that you've probably never seen before. This is their competitive advantage.

    Cons

    As expected with any driven organization, you need to meet high level of excellence in everything you do. There's no room for laziness. Mistakes and errors are normal but lack of work ethic will cause them to coach you out of the company and to a different career.

    The journey at Ontario Green has been very rewarding

    Pros

    I have graduated from a Marketing Program and have worked for different agencies/companies in the past. The difference here is the inclusion, the attention to your growth, the stimulation of your intelligence through challenges, and the overall open-concept work environment in the company. Everyone will have different ideas and opinions and some will have a negative outlook about this company but any fast-growing or large company has a handful of negative reviews on Glassdoor, so it is reasonably expected that "You can't make everyone happy". What really counts do is that the company does its best to be on the right track and is doing what's right by its employees through bonuses, recognitions, organizational development, leadership programs, and other processes that are designed to help develop your career. I worked in a team of 3 who were reporting to the Director and was please with the leadership style and the open communication system. There are many positive points to mention but this is my take on the company... Fast Growing, Bright Future, Great Leadership.

    Cons

    It's hard to not have downsides in any company. This company is not a place where you can become complacent. Not having the work ethic to push every day will definitely get you in hot water. You might get infractions, warnings, performance reviews and etc... lots of these 1-star reviews are from the people that I worked with. They would be inconsistent, would not show up, would be late, would not finish their tasks, and got booted out. Once terminated, they complain about the company because it did not meet their unrealistic expectations.
