    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Hydro Ottawa for more than a year

    Pros

    Was well supported by upper management while I was there, they took in a lot of feedback and were interested in making improvements to customer care, as best they could. If you stick around long enough, and put in good work, you can move up to different positions quite smoothly.

    Cons

    While I was there, there was definitely had lots of senior customer contact agents who were there for a free ride, and because it's unionized it made it hard for management to make changes and improvements to staff as needed. Hopefully that has changed since my time there.
