    Pros

    High pay out of school. Great benefits. Provide a good working environment with necessary tools. Was lucky to have a really good manager as well.

    Cons

    Right in the city which means long commutes. During the summer months it would get very busy and stressful with all the requests coming in. Needs better communication from contractors.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Toronto Hydro full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not very many pros.. maybe competitive pay & benefits, but it's not worth the toll this company will take on your mental health and well being.

    Cons

    If you join, be prepared to be treated like a number. No team building or diversity & inclusiveness strategies. They indicate work hours are 35 per week but you'll actually end up working 45-50 hours with no overtime pay or acknowledgement from management. I was told the team was "collaborative" during my interview process, but everyone is really out for themselves. Management also uses bully tactics towards their employees (I've seen this across departments) so please beware. To top it off, there is absolutely no flexibility.
