  6. "OLG"

    Pros

    Decent wage and alright benefits for part-time employees, that is really all I can think of.

    Cons

    New employees will be put on strict overnights, will not be flexible with your booked holidays if your a new employee. Shared lockers with people

    Advice to Management

    If job retention is important to you, new employees should be treated fairly and with consideration. With everything based on seniority, don't expect people to stay to make it to that level if they are treated like garbage.

    I worked at OLG (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Total compensation is market driven and fair. Culture is evolving and desires to be more innovative. The People really make the culture and you can tell when you're a part of it.

    Cons

    Be able to navigate the complexity of being a profitable government agency, understand processes quickly and you will excel. Change is a constant and you can thrive if that's the environment you enjoy.

    Advice to Management

    People are your #1 asset, continue to keep evolving the high performance culture and support your managers and leaders with those capabilities.
