Good Salary, great benefits, secure. Hard to get in, monotone and slow paced at times
Investment Planning Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 March 2018
salary, benefits and job security are good. job rotation possible but not easily available. Can get pretty political, slow-paced, and/or monotone. will need to get in as a contractor and then secure a FT position
CDM Key Account Consultant (Current Employee) – Toronto – 11 March 2018
The leadership at Toronto Hydro is very professional and inspiring. The office culture and the people are a pleasure to work for. The only problem is being on contract and not having that job security that most people want.
A great place to work and learn the trade of lineman.
Apprentice/Journeyman Lineman (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 January 2018
worked 8 hours a day as a team. I learned the trade of Lineman. Management was on your side %100 In the early 80s the line trade seemed to have a team culture to them selves. Learning the trade and becoming proficient at it. The team atmosphere.
Great people and benefits but very flat so no growth
Senior Financial Analyst, Client Support (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 November 2017
Great place to work with wonderful employees, however if you are ambitious and want to move up the ladder, the organization is too flat. There are people that are dedicated and work hard, however it is hard to retain talented employees as they will leave to be able to see upward growth. Many staff are "lifers" so getting them to take on tasks outside their comfort zone can be difficult. Dynamic and fast paced employees will not last here long as they will get bored and move on.
Okay for technical roles, not for business analysis
Business Analyst (Current Employee) – 14 Carlton – 1 June 2017
Business analysts are undervalued and much of the work you will be doing is not core business analysis so career development would be minimal. The plus is the good work/life balance as you are not expected to stay later than 5pm. Many of the people are also nice to talk to and helpful. If you are a BA though, you should not spend too much time in the company.
