Great company

As an employee at Ontario Power Generation, I’ve had the opportunity to work in a dynamic and supportive environment. The company places a strong emphasis on safety, sustainability, and innovation, which aligns perfectly with my personal and professional values. The team culture here is incredibly collaborative, fostering an atmosphere where ideas are valued and everyone’s contributions are recognized.

Direction less chattering boxes all around

Everyone in management speak to speak rather than add value. There is mix of people but toxic management trumps voice of smart and thoughtful engineers because they are threatened by it. Blame game is strong here and I would not recommend joining unless you are ok to just suck up to everything management says without objection.

Intensive but rewarding experience

OPG is a nice place to do internship, especially if you are in engineering field. The co-op term was intensive, and tough at times, but rewarding. Most coworkers were nice and supportive. My co-op term was 4 months, not long enough to guarantee me a return offer.

Fun workplace

Good company to work for paid well as a coop student and had great coworkers that were ready to teach you more and answer any questions you had. The work load wasn’t overwhelming either

Toxic management, have had bad experience

I got hired under a project only to get re-assigned a low value project with short term prospect. Now they are saying budget constraints might affect this project and my tenure within 2 months of being hired. Management is toxic with no regard for mental health of employees. Contract employees are viewed as a tool to be used by full time officers.

Endless Growth Potential

Started as a millwright (mechanical maintainer), promoted to foreman (my favorite position there) and later to Front Line Manager. The potential for growth is limitless if you are interested or you can spend your entire career as a front line worker if you prefer. Being nuclear it is a heavily regulated and procedural based work environment which is understandable but frustrating at times.

Good work life balance, low pay relative to cost of living

Good work life balance, low pay relative to cost of living. Getting pretty excessive with the political ideologies. If you want cutting edge look elsewhere. Otherwise, it’s acceptable.

Clueless management

Management had no idea on what is required to execute a project. They have ton of money to throw at a project. Some managers I worked with had hard time describing what their project were about and its requirements. I am glad I left.

Great job security but too much office politics

I am a full-time employee who took a developmental rotation. I was not aware the hiring manager hired me to make sure I didn't get a full-time position out of my rotation. In OPG full-time staff get hired for internal posting over temp workers, provided they meet the min job requirements. The manager whom hired me had a team full of temp workers who would not get a job if I were to apply. So, the team made my experience during the rotation horrible, and did not give me the opportunity to develop skills. I confirmed my suspicion when I placed in a different department, same job, and my performance noticeably improved overnight. This is an example of how office politics ruin the work culture and I'm sure it is accountable for some of the extremely high turnover this company experiences. Wages are no longer competitive either due to government regulations on wage increases. Only in Ontario would you cap raises at 1% when inflation has been 8%+ for over a year.


Free lunches, training, and they give you enough time to complete work


Office politics, compensation not competitive with industry standards

Ladder climbing clueless managers each trying for a larger salary and pension. Shop floor employees ignored with an us and them attitude. Tax payers would be shocked.

Good coworkers but bad management

I worked with good knowledgable team members. Management was bad with low understanding of problem they wanted to solve and wanted to throw a lot of things at wall to see what sticks. I am glad I got the chance to leave.

Best job ever

Loved it. Left cuz I thought they are shutting down. Man I’m dumb. Great job but no sleep. If you are young good place to be. If old, can be pretty tough.

Good pay, decent overall with some toxic managers

Some managers are toxic and unsupportive towards employees. Most I encountered were good and supportive but I came across some who were downright passive aggressive, act unaccountable and look for ways to put blame on others. Harder if temp.
