It all depends on who your manager is and what you are looking to get out of this experience
Coordinator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 January 2017
The company restructures frequently and I stopped learning new things about a year in.The salary/benefits, work/life balance and culture is fair, depending on your department/division.
Speaking from only my experience, my manager was not the greatest. When we were both challenged to effectively communicate with one another I found this individual to be insensitive and disingenuous.
Like any potential position you take a risk. If what's important to you is doing some engaging work on meaningful projects for the province of Ontario then take a chance. If it's important to you to work in a place that has a strong culture of collaboration, positive relationships and developed managers than this place may not be the place for you.

IO was an amazing place to work at, especially after finishing my second year of university. Amazing work culture, fantastic atmosphere and helpful senior management executives really made my internship move along.
