    Great coworkers but pathetic leadership.

    Independent Learning Centre (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsThe people at TVO are true professionals who know their jobs to the last detail. The working environment is pleasant and the salary is good.

    ConsTVO's management is driven by politics, not a desire for improvement. Managers are hired and fired for political reasons, and the policies they implement are poorly considered, poorly planned and poorly communicated. TVO is in a constant state of restructuring that seems to have no clear goal or implementation strategy. Consequently, rank-and-file employees are often given conflicting, inconsistent instructions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChanges should be driven by a desire to improve the quality of the product or the efficiency of the workers, not just for the sake of change.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Infrastructure Specialist (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsThe environment is one of the last to have an old school defined benefit pension program. This is worth a great deal of money if you can make it 10-15 years service.

    ConsTVO is an Union Environment burdened with provincial government austerity measures. Salaries are frozen with benefit cutbacks in full swing,

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet stable funding.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to work, they pay high for developers

    New Media Specialist II (Former Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsVery good company to work with though, the pay is high.

    ConsThey just had a laid off round, they reduced like 3 department, laying off 40 staff employees and probably alot of contract workers who's contract was ending.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe careful with TVO Business side, they do watch the employee at all staff meetings and such, arrive on time for them.

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

    Walks the talk of excellence, collaboration, and teamwork.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsHaving transformed itself from simply being a broadcaster, the growing body of digitally streamed content, educational kids games, mobile apps, on line high school courses and other web services means lots of opportunities for IT professionals. Great work life balance. Competitive salaries and benefits. Convenient location in mid-town Toronto. Sorry to sound like a marketing ad, but its all true.

    ConsWhile management, employee and union relations are generally good, some issues still come up.
