    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Metrolinx full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great orientation and onboarding. I didn’t feel like I was being thrown into something or an unfamiliar situation. Everyone seems really friendly and the office culture is positive

    Cons

    Feels very traditional in terms of the office design (cubicles, white walls, etc) so there’s room for some more inspiring or interesting design changes but it is a government agency after all.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to operate Metrolinx like a private business that’s accountable to the public, and incorporates more elements of successful private companies in terms of corporate culture.

    Pros

    Engaging and important issues, good mid-level managers, energetic and sociable staff.

    Many reorgs, politics can trump technical advice, many meetings and very dependent on outsourced consultants.

    Advice to Management

    In-house the core competencies. Prioritize initiatives.
