    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Hydro Ottawa for less than a year

    Pros

    My experience working at Hydro Ottawa was very positive. The team is very friendly, and leaving my position after four months was difficult after making so many close friends. The atmosphere working at Hydro Ottawa is pretty laid back. All of the summer students get the opportunity to interact face-to-face with the CEO and executive staff. My supervisor was very informative and I learned a ton about the electricity distribution industry.

    Cons

    I believe that your experience at Hydro will be highly dependent on your supervisor. While I felt like I was making valuable contributions to the organization, not all students were so lucky. I know there were a few who felt that they were not being used to their potential, however this issue was brought up and might be resolved by next summer.
