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.

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.

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.

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.
