    I worked at Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    One of the best investment teams, worldwide. Great culture overall, however, varies by department.

    Cons

    Location was terrible, although they are moving downtown.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain a good balance of hiring both experienced professionals and new graduates. OTPP went too long with hiring lots of new graduates with little experience, and not enough experienced talent who could tackle existing challenges of a growing organization.

    I have been working at Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits package and pension. The people are friendly/dedicated, and there are plenty of things to learn from them and knowledge to share. Flexible hours for the most part, opening up to remote working.

    Cons

    Extremely slow growth and resistance to change. Within the past year almost every manager in a division has been promoted while workers are left in their role. Lots of stress and late nights depending on which team you are on. Junior employees might find it difficult to obtain mentorship and grow their skills. Overall trend seems to be heading towards more transparency, but this company still lags behind others in... the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employees that are not at the managerial level. Instead of hosting fancy events explaining how the company is improving, show employees through your actions. There's room for great potential at this company, but lots of work is needed to shift the culture and mindset.
