I have been working at Ontario Securities Commission full-time (More than 3 years)
Excellent benefits. Good work/life balance. Ability to work from home (if approved by Manager) on occasion. Very good EAP that provides support and information to all employees (including hour-long seminars on a variety of topics pertinent to everyone).
People managers do not provide much feedback and certainly no guidance or 'career building' opportunities are given. Favouritism continues to be problematic. Employee survey results were misleading and not clearly communicated. Certainly, transparency in the roll-out of information was an issue. And, given it was the first survey in three years, it should have been disseminated in a better fashion. Communication overall continues to be a problem (people are promoted to roles and nothing is said as it wasn't posted through the proper channels - Though, Management has people already in mind for some of the jobs so there isn't much point in applying). Senior Management is very tight with HR so there is no one you can really talk to. There is also a shocking lack of securities knowledge (by staff who have been there for decades) for an organization that is supposed to be an Industry Regulator.
Advice to Management
Try to work on morale of staff. Social events don't fix ingrained issues. Fully use the results of the Employee Survey to actually improve the work environment. Have meetings without HR and Management present to really discuss issues employees have. No one is going to speak up otherwise.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ontario Securities Commission (Toronto, ON (Canada)).
First met with hiring manager and another member of the department. They described the role and I had the chance to ask questions about the position. Second interview with other members of the department.
