    Infrastructure Ontario is a great place to work but...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood place to work, very diverse and accepting work environment. Company tries hard to keep employees engaged and happy despite strict austerity measures and volatile political climate.

    ConsWorking for a Crown Corp like Infrastructure Ontario is challenging. You have to do it for the work, not the money or benefits. Billed as a private company doing public work... you get all the bad things associated with working for the gov't (i.e. austerity measures, wage freezes, public scrutiny) and none of the good things (i.e. unions, good pension and benefits packages, employment opportunities within all provincial ministries etc.) Typically private sector companies can offer competitive salaries, are allowed to reward employees in some form or fashion but at a Crown Corp it's all about the possible headline... what if the media found out we offer something more than a chair and a desk to our workers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook for more ways to make employees feel valued... sometimes you just have to risk a headline.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Do not work for Infrastructure Ontario if you want to develop your skills and career.

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsGreat place for people with no particular abilities and skills and no career aspirations. Benefit is good. Work is easy. Location is good.

    ConsVery hierarchical and political organization with 80's mindset and management style. Does't develop employees. There is no career path. Promotions are not based on abilities and skills. Strong bias against some groups. Management has no vision for the company, either micro-managing or not managing or completely invisible. Extremely inefficient.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConnect with employees. Recognize, develop and promote people with real abilities and skills.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
