Great way to work and enjoy the outdoors
Many different tasks are assigned to you and you learn a lot of new skills working here. They hire a lot os students for the summer with an opportunity to come back the next year.

Productive and fun workplace
Working Under TRCA you experience a lot of different customers, but every day is fun and you are treated well by not only your coworkers, but also your leaders.

Good field work experience
Got to be in the field most days (weather permitting) collecting field data like fisheries survey, benthic sampling, water sampling, etc. Really useful field work that can help you advance your career later on

Productive and collaborative place to work
Workplace culture is great, easy-going staff and everybody is willing to help you settle in. The work-life balance is great as you work 35 hours per week.

Was once a wonderful place to work not anymore
I loved it there for several years. I felt valued and my work appreciated. All that changed when the new CEO arrived. What was a great culture turned ugly. Fear dominates and a top-down rule exist now, with people afraid constantly. Now it's a place where negativity, cronyism and even hiring your mistress is considered allowable actions. Stay clear.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Bad management, favoritism, culture of fear.

Going downhill
This used to be a great place to work, Unfortunately, things have changed and the loss of many good employees isn't as a result of change. People can handle change, even if they hate it. Being manipulative, nontransparent, but saying you want to be transparent, are not the qualities of great leaders. New management has taken the bull by the horns and have forgotten that it's human beings that work here. People have lives, people have feelings, people want to feel important by making positive contributions but when every single idea or attempt at making things better is squashed, you start thinking of going somewhere where your talent is valued and appreciated.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons
Horrible senior management and CEO

Poor HR Practices
I do not have many good things to say about this place, that is why I am moving on.
This company hides details in their contract. I have many disputes with HR and cannot elaborate. I am moving on since I am very unhappy here
Pros
Good Mission Statement
Cons
Human Resources Practices

Great Student Job
This was my first job as a teenager and I learned many skills and lots about myself. I feel I became a better person and would recommend this workplace to anyone especially students looking for a first job

Secure & Comfortable Environment
This is a safe and secure work environment with a low stress feel. However the higher up management (CFO) is not considerate of the staff below at all. This seems to be a recent and rising issue with the corporation. However aside from this, all other aspects of the workplace are great. Direct managers are understanding and provide employees with the necessary encouragement and support they need to be successful.
Pros
Decent hours, great management
Cons
No HR, poor communication from CFO to employees

Good introductory position
This is a good position to begin your working experience within the museum sector but there is little chance for advancement and the position is extremely unstable. Does not support a livelihood.

Good for a part-time job
Great environment with a great staff to go along with it. Not too challenging, but can chaotic depending on the amount of customers coming in. Over all, it was a good place to work while I was still a student.
Pros
Good Management
Cons
Only part-time
