    I have been working at Toronto Pearson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Inspirational strategy, group of committed people, available resources to make the change.

    Cons

    Terrible communication, lack of trust and disconnect between people. Low engagement, despite different method of trying to push the scores. Double standards, hidden but well established buddy culture (managers), favoritism. Finger pointing as major way to solve problems. Difficulty to make real changes with most of the team unionized, dated IT and management reluctant to take risks related to changes. Some mixing authority with bullying behind the door. Highly insecure and nervous management facing possible privatization.

    Advice to Management

    HR should focus on cutting politics, building ethical culture and bringing more "democratic" and progressive business practices.

    I worked at Toronto Pearson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The working staff are the ones who make the airport run. There were some amazing teams running Pearson. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management are terrified of CEO. Doesn't matter what needs to be done, they are only concerned with keeping him happy, right or wrong, doesn't matter. It used to be run right when the CEO was permanent. Once contract CEO came in the staff is forced to deal with all issues short term.

    Advice to Management

    Facility infrastructure and staff engagement will only last so long.
