    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Ontario Power Generation full-time

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits and pension if FULL time, particularly if you join out of school. Reasonable hours and you don't take work home. The best pro was a forward thinking CEO who has since left the company.

    Cons

    Company is shrinking so there is no internal movement, only rotations. No upward mobility. Toxic culture that does not believe in flexibility and depending on the division - does not believe in diversity. Do your research on the group you are joining as this matters. Management versus Union employees are treated differently and many management employees are subject to "drive by shooting" style firings on a... regular basis.
