    Pros

    Your safety shoes are covered and they might give you a water bottle depending on the yearly budget, also you can spend useless amount of company hours browsing the garage other staff members are trying to sell through a internal portal called pathways ( Region of Peel kijiji ) so if you want a gently tossed down the stairs treadmill or PAMA tote bag this organization is perfect for you

    Cons

    Almost everything... racist, dysfunctional and slower than dirt

    Advice to Management

    Retire already...

    Pros

    Colleagues....not much else at all...

    Cons

    A place where your tax dollars are going to uneducated and unqualified management making 5 figures. Parking is limited and the Tims is not real.

    Restructure and downsize unecessary management.
    Increase education requirements for those in supervisory roles.
    Stop paying lip service to your bogus 'values'.

    I worked at Region of Peel part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall, positive learning experience, as there are many resources and connections to be made at the organization.

    Cons

    My manager refused blatantly to be a reference for me although I was a great student. He said he did not know me well enough (What?!), even though he ignored me most of the time. After the placement, they continued to demand work from me. It was terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Keep better rapport between the student coordinator and manager of department. Make sure your students are not having their rights violated in any way. I felt exploited.
