Everyone is warm and welcoming and willing to sit down with you to guide you through proper steps for completing assigned tasks. Never scared to ask for help.

Most importantly I learned in TBS is work priority, taking the ownership of tickets, co-ordinate with the clients, reporting to higher management team. The most enjoyable part is first effort of resolution of the tickets is mine and than after research by myself and than co-ordinate with the TIER 3 support and learning the things.

Generally enjoyable working environment. I learned to work alone and in a team while employed there. The hardest part of the job is being short staffed all the time.

Great place to work, however it is hard to get a permanent position. The building at 222 Jarvis has horrible reception. The culture is very accommodating.

Not much to say here. This is a conservative government office with minimal room for creativity. Loyalty is not rewarded, but a pleasant place to work.
Pros
collegiality
Cons
unfair hiring practices

The project experience was challenging and fast paced in which I learned to excel at. I learned a lot about project governance and administration in which I went on to work in other projects such as this one.

The middle management works very hard, but the senior management seemed confused and dysfunctional, and at times abusive towards my manager. My manager tried to shelter her staff, as did most managers, but at the end it was still horrible. Many people had mental health issues due to the stress at work. Eventually my entire team left to work somewhere else. I left because my contract ended and I was on maternity leave.

it was a good place to work although the contract was only for three months so to make a serious evaluation would be premature basing the fact that employment is normally a 30 year term.

Work/life balance is great, but the pace is very slow, and the organization epitomizes bureaucracy. Some good people, but the bad apples are not weeded out, so experiences can differ.
Pros
Job security, rare overtime
Cons
no recognition for good work, slow advancement
