    I worked at OLG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pension, healthy budgets to work with but too many stakeholders to get anything done. Wendy Montgomery is a gem and treats people well.

    Cons

    Worst culture, it is like living in medieval hierarchy, if I could give no stars that would be more appropriate. People are just a number. I saw people get let go after 23 years of service.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like people not subordinates.
