Difficult but rewarding

Working at OPG involves a lot of changes and a demanding work environment. The schedule can also be very demanding. But at the same time it can be very rewarding.

Awesome place to have an Internship!

From the perspective of an intern I can confidently say that OPG is a excellent opportunity. Off the bat, the salary is competitive. The work is meaningful and although it's a relatively fast-paced environment, it's very work-hard-play-hard. I never felt stressed that if I couldn't reach a deadline I would feel embarrassed. The people at OPG are great as well, my team was filled with great individuals who were vey knowledgeable and passionate about the work that they were doing. The only downsides are that the offices do not have the 'techy' environment that many tech companies have (open space, snack bars, lounges, etc.) , aside from great pay there aren't many official benefits (although a great manager will help accommodate your preferences), and the idea of getting hired post-graduate depends on the size of your team (my team was a size of <10 people).

Pros

Great Salary, Relaxed Environment, Meaningful work

Cons

Little Benefits, Dated Physical Environment

Really Good Environment and Work

I felt empowered and encouraged to work and learn. You get to have a lot of in house training for safety and work culture and get good amount of time to learn and start your responsibilities. My manager was amazing and she really made things a lot easier. Morning huddles, overall company direction and the days deliverables. Rest of the day, work and learn independently while some requests and updates were given. Overall it was an amazing experience. Although my contract was not renewed, I had a very good experience at OPG.

Pros

Good Management, Excellent work environment, good pay

Cons

Stressful

Brest Cancer

Breast cancer, stay away. 7 of us got breast cancer from Darlington. I was the first. When I returned to work they put me back in a high radiation zone. When I complained they moved me. 10 hour shifts sitting in an office doing nothing. Fights with management leads to me being forced to take early retirement or get fired. Company does are. Get jobs done at any cost.

Pros

Money

Cons

Cancer

Challenging, many opportunities for growth and advancement

A work environment with the ability to perform useful work on many different levels (lots of room for advancement) . It would be tough to find a better place to work.

Pros

High tech, fast paced environment, steady employment and fantastic benefits.

Cons

Quasi monopoly, government run type of institution. Slow to change and innovate.

Awesome place to work

Great place to work, diverse group of people. I worked as a contractor in the projects and mods division and that was always exciting and fast paced. Great salary, if you get a full time offer that’s as good as it gets.

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.
