    I worked at Toronto Hydro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    flexible hours, no one keeps track

    Cons

    The company doesn't know how to use their resources and capital efficiently...and are soooo slow in how they operate. Instead of investing so much into useless things like advertising, they need to invest in better equipment, human capital, and profitable business opportunities.

    Certain individuals within the company are worked to the extreme, while others are selfish and will perform the bare minimum. I can't believe how many times I've caught employees using company time to go on long coffee breaks, chill at the nearby shopping centres, do online shopping, and have personal phone calls with their spouses.

    College station HQ is the worse & most dangerous location to work at.

    Advice to Management

    I strongly advise management to be more strict on monitoring their employees, and to actually try balancing the workloads of contract workers & full-timers.
    Also, try considering to implement some mental health support programs please.

    Pros

    - Very friendly environment
    - Coworkers and superiors always willing to help if you give them a shout
    - Superiors will always reply to or follow up on requests to learn more about points of interest, to further a student's experience

    Cons

    - Much of the improvement that occurred in my department was directly dealt with by the lead, not much room for one to implement their own improvements, only suggest

    Advice to Management

    - Allow students to take a more hands on role so that they leave experiences or a project that they can use as an example of their capabilities, as opposed to just doing day to day work
