    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Toronto Hydro full-time

    Pros

    Pays well, great benefits, pay for a lot of training.

    Cons

    Large amount of manager turnover. I was the third supervisor in three years. Abnormal amount of managers fired. Very poor engineering group. Toxic work environment. Only work in unionized positions. There is a reason internal staff do not apply for management roles.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the VPs creating a toxic work environment. Hire engineering managers who have actually designed and constructed things instead of promoting kids who just graduated.

    Pros

    Great people and managers ( depending on dept) to work from great starting salary and benefits

    Cons

    Lots of office politics and high employee turnover can make one very uneasy to feel comfortable or supported in your role.

    Fix toxic work cultures from the top - down to retain high performing employees and make a safer work environment
