    I worked at Hydro One full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Moving to a customer focused company; Great work environment; Strong committment to employee development; Competitive renumeration and benefits.

    Cons

    Very few cons. Working in a heavily regulated industry can be challenging but rewarding if you're up to it.

    Pros

    Excellent place to work. They offer a lot of training and opportunities for development. Would recommend this company for anyone looking for an internship.

    Cons

    The only downside (which was simultaneously a benefit) is the downtown location. Right next to Queen station and the Eaton Centre, so the commute was both quick yet insanely crowded.

    Advice to Management

    I found my internship to have been very rewarding so I can't think of much. The only thing is to maybe find new training videos as the series we used seems to have been (at least from the music choices) from the late 80s to early 90s. That would have made that material more engaging.

    Pros

    I've been with the company for over 6 years working as an Electrical engineer. The company put in a lot of resources on developing young engineers. The work is challenging and there's plenty of opportunities to learn and develop if you are motivated.

    There's not as much incentive to perform as other industries.
