The managers were wonderful to for and my co-workers were very helpful. The working hours were great and they really made you feel like you did a great job at work and they took the time to show you things you didn't understand.

* Delegating the jobs between the employees. Going over and ensuring job done to set standards. Answering phone calls from MPP's and their representatives. Finding solutions and answers to queries.
* Learned a lot at this job. It was my first real job. As long as you were willing to learn and work hard, you had room to grow and move up. Learned how to delegate, supervise, nurture a happy and productive environment, write procedures, lead a group of highly intelligent people.

* Management was very encouraging and nurturing.

* Workplace culture: Respectful, encouraging, fulfilling.

* Hardest part: Leaving them to move to another province.

* Most Enjoyable: Growing daily. Respectful management and employees / coworkers. Learning new things and being encouraged to utilize the new information gathered.
Pros
Everything. The job, the culture, the people.
Cons
Having to leave Ontario.

Very good conditions at work. You can learn languages. Management is good. Workplace is nice, the workplace culture too. The hardest part of the job is the long hours of the overtime with no payment or headway. The most enjoyable part of the job is the work itself: it is very intellectual.

Had a great experience working here for a brief period of time. Workload wasn't too bad on a daily basis but was repetitive. Culture was okay and was not stressful

People would count down the days to retirement as work is very repetitive and has a lot of hierarchy. Need to get permission to even print a page. Not worth sacrificing 30 years of your life for a pension.

The Ministry of Finance is an interesting place to work. There are new challenges daily and limited resources to resolve them. It forces a person to be creative in their methods. The salary is not great as it does not compare with the private sector or IT jobs in other countries. The benefits are fairly good.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
Below average compensation
