    I worked at Ontario Power Generation

    Pros

    OT worked hard to value their employees. I liked the managers and the positive attitudes around the office. Everyone contributed to a good company culture.

    Cons

    I would have liked to see a more competitive benefits package. The premiums continued to go up each and every year which was frustrating.
