    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Ontario Power Generation full-time

    Pros

    High salary and pension (but won't last)

    Cons

    Company is seriously downsizing, so there will be many jobs to shed and no future. Very nuclear culture, so all focus is mainly on that area. Offices are jail like.

    Most decisions are made at highest levels, and most employees get excluded and not empowered.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful about the future of the company and don't give false hopes and information. Be respectful and transparent to employees.

    I worked at Ontario Power Generation (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salaries
    Benefits
    Somehow good job security

    Cons

    Get first-hand information about the company, working practices, careers and management from people working there. Some of the reviews that are written here are biased and untrue. Speak with people inside the company and you’ll find out that a lot of things they are not what they seem to be.
    Consider the limitations of having job experience in a dying industry.
    Read about government audits performed on the company.

    Advice to Management

    No point
