Business Analyst, IT Asset and Contract Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 April 2018
My experience is with the IT department. I cannot say this review holds for the company as a whole.


Management is always changing, in my time at TH I have had 5 different leads, 3 different directors and several supervisors. It was a chaotic time.

Contractors are treated as second class citizens, if there are company activities or events contractors will never be asked to participate.

CDM Key Account Consultant (Current Employee) –  Toronto11 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.

Learning the trade and becoming proficient at it.
The team atmosphere.

No cons here. maybe the drive to work if any.

Great people and benefits but very flat so no growth
Senior Financial Analyst, Client Support (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 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.
Pros
Salary, benefits, and people
Cons
No growth

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
