    I have been working at Brookfield Renewable full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Brookfield continues to offer me opportunities to learn new skills and develop myself professionally and personally. I’m excited to work in an organization with a strong leadership culture and a healthy growth mandate. The opportunities I have been afforded would be hard to replicate elsewhere.

    Cons

    Brookfield expects a lot from its employees, so be prepared to work hard. As the business has grown and will continue to grow, organizational changes have and will continue to occur. These changes can temporarily disrupt employees' work lives.

    I have been working at Brookfield Renewable

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Brookfield Renewable throughout my internship. It was a great experience that brought me ample opportunities to apply what I'm learning in school to the real world. I worked closely with project managers, supervisors and designers on actual engineering projects/problems the company was working on during my time there. I was also able to go out in the field on numerous occasions to many of Brookfield's hydro facilities and see/observe the work going on in the field. There were always new and different things to work on, so the repetitiveness of work is minimal.

    Cons

    I really don't have much to say about Brookfield Renewable for the "cons" section. The only thing I might say is that some days are definitely slower than others, but I feel like that happens at any job.

    I have been working at Brookfield Renewable full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    BREG brings a unique combination as both an asset manager and operator. This uniqueness makes tax work at BREG very challenging and rewarding. We constantly learn new things and grow along the way. BREG is very fast paced and attract great people to the business. People here are not afraid of changes and constantly looking for ways to improve the ways we are doing business. In Brookfield, you won't hear somebody saying you couldn't do this or that because this is the way things were being handled in the past. Good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Don't have any right now.

    I worked at Brookfield Renewable

    Pros

    Makes payroll every month. The parent company is well financed, and their willingness to invest clients money for management fees and for bragging rights, despite the likely prospect of losing money, means there is an opprotunity to learn about certain aspects of business on someone else's dime.

    Cons

    Constantly being reorganized. Folks from Canada come down every so often to RIF entire groups, without regard to competence. Because of the resulting gaps, expect to work very hard.

    Every day presents unique situations to learn and grow. Consistently busy with projects that you are given ownership of. Great pay and benefits. Friendly people. You are consistently presented with new challenges and you must manage your time and resources effectively.

    Cons

    None come to mind at this time.
