      Great culture and people. Very slow-paced

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      OPG has a great work culture where everyone is helpful and willing to teach you. There is a very healthy culture on safety as well. Pay is great compared to my peers.

      Cons

      The environment was very slow-paced, I felt like my learning peaked quite early and I was barely challenged. OPG does not hire new grads anymore unless its for a temp job so there is little motivation sometimes to put forward the extra effort.
