Okay for technical roles, not for business analysis
Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  14 Carlton1 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.
Pros
Good hours, benefits, people
Cons
No company culture, low career development

Legal Administrator/Temporary Real Property Clerk (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 January 2016
I engaged in various projects, assisting both lawyers and engineers. A big portion of my job consisted of Real Property work, making sure we met certain deadlines :(ie. unregistered easement requests). Though initially I started off doing administration, throughout my two contracts at Toronto Hydro, I received quite a bit of exposure to a corporate legal setting and all that it entailed. From attending hearings and conferences at the Ontario Energy Board, to listening in on educational seminars among economists, lawyers and engineers I managed to develop many great skills. The experience truly made me want to pursue a career in law.
Pros
Located right next to the subway station
Cons
Short Staffed
