Great Benefits - Terrible Management
IF you're willing to suck up to some big egos than this might work for you. Org structure is constantly changing and if you're one of the unlucky ones than you'll either lose your position and have to re-apply to another division, or they'll just fire you. Senior Management treat their support persons however they choose, and are not afraid of yelling to make themselves look important. Hard workers who won't accept this treatment are let go, while the "suck-ups" can keep their jobs even when blatantly underperforming.

It is a nice environment to learn
Good mentors and team. Will provide a nice learning curve to P&C professionals. Offers a proper work life balance. Promotes One OPG culture that encourages teamwork.

Goal Company
OPG is the goal employer for any technical professional (or other) in Ontario. Represented by PWU, we have some of the best benefit packages in the country, and our salary progression is laid out concisely in our collective agreement. Operations is essentially feast or famine, one day is very relaxed, and another is the most busy/stressful days of your year. Great company to work for and looking forward to seeing where it will take my career.

Lots of paper work to do jobs. Learning curve is very slow because of the security and safety of any jobs performed on the site. They pay well and good.

Typical Large Corporate Employer
Nothing unusual about OPG for their industry sector. They do some things well. There are variations in their annual budget outcomes driving growing or shrinking their workforce. Only expectation is to know for that year what their resource loading is like, next year it might change.

Challenging and Collaborative
I worked mainly on Major projects like Darlington refurbishment and Rapid Delivery Machine for Fuel Channel inspection project, project environment was understandable challenging as is in any other major nuclear project. But met some of the finest people i know and loved working with them.

Productive culture workplace but fairly outdated
Typical day - 35 hour work week. Good work and life balance. There are some events that occur and they have a strong culture when it comes to following procedures and protocols.

Job Culture
Very outdated culture and management structure leads to a frustrating work enviroment.
Everything moves extremely slow in part due to the nature of the business but largely in part of the overall very poor culture in the company. No incentives to excel and go above and beyond what your job entails and often you'll be met with additional roadblocks if you try and do so.
Pros
Flexible hours

slow pace and not complicated job
working in Ontario Power generation is good if you hired as permanent. If you got hired as temporary staff, you wont get any benefits as other employees also, your work load is more than permanent ones.
