    I have been working at Toronto Pearson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most employees want to do a good job

    Cons

    Senior Management and processes make it impossible for anything meaningful to get done. Costs on the rise as a result of autocratic and top heavy processes. Too many senior managers without the required technical knowledge. Management just does whatever the CEO wants. Input to improve not welcome.

    Advice to Management

    Cut about half the director/ associate director positions. Hire a COO to get the place in order. Reduce the paperwork nightmare. Improve financial approvals. Empower employees weather than suffocating them. Spend money on failing infrastructure rather than shiny new things.
