    I have been working at Toronto Hydro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good office space. Several locations in the city available to travel.

    Cons

    You will not apply nor gets any project management experience, but will just follow processes. Robust company with tons of documents and useless metrics. Work is tedious and repetitive. High turnaround in PMO, due to dissatisfaction of current employees. Management treats you like garbage because your not a union.

    Advice to Management

    Apply project and program management practices to have your work more efficiently completed. Stop overloading current staff, thinking it is normal to do so.

    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.
