    Pros

    Interesting people in lower management roles

    Cons

    Senior management highly nervous, insecure in current environment. Ex federal governmental agency, with legacy issues of dead wood employees. Surprising inexperience in some cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Heal the union / management divide. Be open to challenging, positive feedback from staff.

    I have been working at Toronto Pearson

    Pros

    The people are awesome. You won't find a better bunch of individuals. People are passionate about what they do, and love the fact that we make this place run. The new brand is terrific, and I think we are moving in the right direction with our new vision and strategy. The benefits are pretty good, although the salaries for managers are low compared to other companies. The office enviorment is good, and they are moving towards more modern amenities. Goals are clear, and we get things done - it's really fast paced and challenging.

    Cons

    You don't actually work within the airport, and you tend to forget that you are a part of the airport. There are some leaders who don't buy in to the vision, but because they are technically good at what they do they are allowed to stay. Vacation benefits are lacking, 4 weeks is the max unless you are unionized. Salaries could be higher for non-unionzed folks. Sometimes there is a lot expected of you, and you don't always have enough team members to delegate to. They are very secretive about salaries and job bands. Hard to know which role you want to move to when you don't know the pay for the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the leaders who show strong people leadership. Promote based on ability to lead teams. Don't just ask for opinions, act on them. Or tell us why you can't. Move the administration office to the terminals, so we are actually a part of the airport. Be more transparent about things like job salary bands, and allow more movement between jobs.

    Pros

    Professionals to guide you at work, often with very good experience and know-how and willing to share knowledge with you. was a good atmosphere with other students around, and we got to visit sites internally that were great learning places.

    Cons

    difficutly in trevelling to site, and coach to get inside takes too long to shuttle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Difficult for students to get food/coffe inside unless senior officars give them a ride- which they do often, thanks.

    I worked at Toronto Pearson

    Pros

    - great recognition for working at the largest airport in Canada

    Cons

    - there is such a divide between the unionized staff and the management that there is an environment of distrust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up the lines of communication to be more transparent.
