    I worked at Hydro One

    Pros

    Amazing work life balance, I did a 16 month co-op. Loved my team, overall great time. They gave me lots of autonomy, and treated me like a full time employee, not just a co-op. They also had a great co-op social program.

    Hard to get back into full time, can be a little slow for co-ops at certain times
