Ontario Power Generation selected this as a representative review
I was on 4 months coop and it was really great experience. I learned a lot. Staff was very friendly, always ready to help. They use to arrange some pancake ceremony or get together meetings helps to know about company, staff.
7 hours shift, pay benefits, great learning opportunity, great chance for networking
Great work environment, lots of opportunity for advancement within the company. Offered training where needed. Worked Monday to Friday with flexible working hours.
Ontario Power Generation is a boring slow organization with a lot of politics involved both internally and externally. productivity is very low and the culture of ineffective and inefficient governmental organizations dominates.
ineeficient and ineffective
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

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.
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.
