    Pros

    Majority of people are very dedicated. Really want to deliver good products or services. Get to know government RFP process.

    Cons

    too much Red tape. Even people wants to deliver quickly, but red tape/process causes slow down. Management are reluctant to deal with non performers.

    Advice to Management

    Should really assess who are the good staff, and reward accordingly. 5% promotion increase is too little. Should manage non performers

    I have been working at eHealth Ontario (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good vacation times, decent benefits, and having a pension are all nice. The people are genuine and fun to work with once you get them to open up. The QA department is great (no bias).

    Cons

    Politics and bureaucracy leads to a collection of silos who don't interact. This creates massive inefficiency. Also, the security is a major cause of loss, because it ties everyone's hands to the point where you need 2-4x the number of resources for one job.

    Advice to Management

    Get the PMO and architects on board with adoption. Right now they're too focused on base minimum functionality to check their checkbox.

    Benefits, people who work there, vacation time, training, but not much else really.

    Cons

    Poor senior management, terrible design for disaster recovery, no testing of recovery systems approved.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. Let them step up and show you what they can do. Stop letting the best staff rot under poor, inadequate management and subsequently leaving the company to bring their talents out.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits and that's about it.

    Cons

    Ancient technology, lots of red tape, too much office politics. You're either good at brown-nosing or you go. There are too few good managers.
    Also they are downtown quite far from Union so you have to love the subway.
    There is no work from home policy and you're basically tied to the desk.

    Advice to Management

    Move on to the modern era
