Great pay. Terrible workplace.
Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONMay 16, 2016
There is a constant turnover in the department.
A lot of reliance on external contractors.
Only recently the focus has started shifting towards building their own skillset.
Work/life balance is almost non-existent.

A terrific workplace with employees that make you feel welcomed
Legal Administrator/Temporary Real Property Clerk (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONJanuary 14, 2016
I engaged in various projects, assisting both lawyers and engineers. A big portion of my job consisted of Real Property work, making sure we met certain deadlines :(ie. unregistered easement requests). Though initially I started off doing administration, throughout my two contracts at Toronto Hydro, I received quite a bit of exposure to a corporate legal setting and all that it entailed. From attending hearings and conferences at the Ontario Energy Board, to listening in on educational seminars among economists, lawyers and engineers I managed to develop many great skills. The experience truly made me want to pursue a career in law.
Pros
Located right next to the subway station
Cons
Short Staffed

Would NOT recommend working for this organization
Communications Consultant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONMay 4, 2014
I was very excited to work at this organization and underwent an extremely vigorous hiring process to get the position only to find out that new ideas or innovations are not welcomed.

Toxic work environment where middle management is complacent and resistant to any change as they wait out their retirement and subsequent pension.

Extremely out of touch of what young professionals TODAY are looking for in a work environment.
