    I have been working at Ontario Power Generation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It was rewarding and challenging with a bright future.

    Cons

    Constant change in Management and eventually, you get someone who should not be Managing People or in some cases , managing very much. One came in with issues from previous plant...immediately took someone to task who was a good worker and a decent fellow without having all the facts. Individual opted to leave with a sizeable settlement. This should have let Management know they had a problem. Subsequently...individual started to bully subordinates and was obviously trying to put mark on his position. Unfortunately, decisions were not supported with rationale...and when asked about it...Manager flew off handle and hollered....you will do what I say,when I say or I will destroy you...That is hardly a good manager. I feel sorry for the Good Managers in this case...If you are reading this Tom...I would hope you are aware of these situations....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure when you bring people in, they are competent with honesty, integrity, and not in their own world...Decisions made to make change for the sake of change and do nothing to improve something will only cause people to object. They will do as asked, but their view of the manager is diminished. If it was made with a specific purpose to improve something, so be it. Whether it does or not, is not really the case. But if it is made just to put a person's mark on something...or to demonstrate that they are the boss.....it is a losing cause and very counterproductive to developing good team work.
