Lots of opportunity to improve and be in management position

I am fortunate being an employee of Manitoba hydro. They will treat you fairly, although some employees will always find a way to bring you down in order for them to look good but still hydro is an ideal company to work. I guess it is always normal that some people will always get or do something for you to look bad and that way they will also look good. I would consider that as normal, however if you do not know how to play the game then you will be in trouble. You must know how to adjust yourself which ever company you are in- that's the technique in there.

Very good.

Overall an excellent place to work. I suppose I just fell out of love sort of speak with the job/type of work. There is ample opportunity to move around within the company and province. They are extremely supportive and understanding towards life issues. Holidays are plentiful after so much time. They offer moving expenses paid for. The benefits have changed hands and been reduced, not a huge change but some. What I dislike is how they have transitioned as a whole. They have left PR in the dust and removed almost all sense of community with the exception to the major centres to indicate saving money but I can’t see that it has saved anything. The company is so top heavy with Executives is gross. The ability to go and do your job without political BS is non existent and certain employees look for every reason to attempt to get out of work or push back at any directives. 900 and some employees left during our VDP and it feels like the work load is killing the current employees with no help in sight. Another 800 eligible (allegedly) to retire.

Pros

Benefits, pay, holidays

Cons

Work load, procedures, too many executives that know nothing.

slow-pace

Management is great and helpful, but there's little opportunity with the company. Workload is fair with a great work-life balance. Good benefits and salary range.

Take a chance be part of great company with amazing people

Been with Hydro for almost 20 years. I've stayed so long because of my co workers. Typical day is organizing work loads solving problems, answering emails and telephone calls. Workplace culture is fair. Management is my eyes is knowledgeable and fair but lacks person to person communication skills. Best part of my job hands down is the people I work with day in and day out. I've reached my potential at my current position and need to be challenged which I don't get much anymore. I'm looking for adventure a challenge and most importantly helping others and making people smile.

Pros

Great co-workers, salary

Cons

Communication, leadership

Great organization

Manitoba Hydro is not going anywhere. So if you have the chance to get on with them, take it. As you will probably retire there. I would have but had an accident after qq years . My situation was not handled properly at all. Aftera near death accident and diagnosed with PTSD. After saying that, my situation should not stop you. As it was a freak accident. I have had friends sons ask if they should hire on as a Lineman trainee and I always tell them. YES. And the two I am refering to have been lineman now for 5 years. And they love it

Pros

See the province which you live in.

Cons

Travel if not into that

good friends

Learn about a new job and have fun with team work. Then to much political interference in the running of the dams so took early retirement. So now I can take jobs I enjoy.

Large company, room to grow

It is a large company, with many different fields to choose from. Each department has a different focus, and a different work style. You can be in the field or in the office, or both. It is almost entirely unionized, with various unions. They offer flexible work hours (dependent on exact position).

The Keeyask Project was a successful project to work on with great people.

I have worked for Manitoba Hydro for over 3 years in a remote northern environment. The shift rotations were long but made endurable and enjoyable because of the great people with whom I worked.
