    Great Manager who is open to mentoring and career coaching staff. Employee morale is good and staff is great to work with. Great pay and benefits

    Cons

    Don't let the bitter staff members who say there is theft and nepotism happening fool you, they are sad little people who don't know a good thing. Go find another job that pays as much as Metrolinx!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the old tired bitter staff and keep up the great work with those that care!

    Pros

    Great environment with amazing benefits, health and pensions plan.

    They have a good mix of ethnic diversification and people from various sectors. You will get to work in a matrix reporting environment at the corporate level so are less prone to be stuck with a bad manager. In general.

    Free usuage of the Go transit

    Cons

    Very slow pace of work
    Lot of pressure on middle level management to deliver multiple massive projects.

    Advice to Management

    Try using the Public transit so you can relate with the everyday traveller more often.

    Get more corporate discount partnerships

    Pros

    Great employees, Good Pay and benefits. Work environment is good providing you are working with the right people. Flexibility in your work.

    Cons

    Terrible West Region Management, especially in the last Five years. Unqualified individual destroying the way West Region yard is being run.

    Advice to Management

    Totally unprofessional Management of Wolfedale yard. The only good review is the one left by Management itself- So sad! Theft is by Management who directs staff to do it for them. Employees will not be bullied by broken backed Management. This regime will be overcome, the wheels are in motion, wait and see. Karma is good!
