Excellent company to work for. At January 1, 2020, the plan had a preliminary surplus of $6.1 billion based on an average contribution rate of 11% and 100% inflation protection being provided on all pensions.

The work was interesting and challenging. You have a chance to work with talented and knowledgeable staff for a forward-thinking organization trying to manage to a serious and challenging mandate. There very little room or tolerance for error. Most staff are good humoured and friendly people, but they are also worn down and afraid of senior management.
Pros
Good opportunities, friendly staff, interesting/challenging work, good place to learn
Cons
Dysfunctional Senior Executive Team

OTPP is a fantastic place to work especially if you're looking for a long-term job with great security and benefits. They treat their employees extremely well and you'll always have the support of your team at all points in your career.

A great way to advance and apply your learning in the IT industry. Everyone is very friendly and extremely helpful. If there is anything you want to learn about you can contact someone in that role and most of the time they would be happy to book a time to speak with you about their role and experience. The culture is absolutely phenomenal.

Attended 2 separate interviews with them. They were very happy with me and promised me next month start date. They almost made me quit my then job because of the certainty they gave me. Glad I got another job similar to theirs. They can't be trusted.

I love how company coordinate a co-op program for all co-op students from different departments/teams. There are some companies who only recruit few co-op at a time and all of them rarely have a chance to work together. OTPP, however, is different.

Good place to learn with very good salaries. Senior Management is generally quite experienced and very well educated. You're expected to deliver so generally it's a heads down culture but most people are reasonably social.
Pros
Lots to learn, professional environment, staff is generally very well-educated.
Cons
Can be a bit stressful, environment could be friendlier.
