    I worked at Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to work with smart individuals.

    Cons

    Your work environment is heavily based on the type of manager you have. It makes it hard to stay if you have a manager who doesn't know how to 'lead'.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on having managers who know how to lead, and not just because they have been working there for several years.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Worked with some amazing and talented people. Great benefits and flexibility, good work life balance

    Cons

    This part of organization has the micromanagement mentality. They hire the best yet make you do stupid work and follow orders. Employee ideas are usually ignored in favour of external consultants who are seen as superior.

    Advice to Management

    If you truly want to change how the IT services are delivered consider a different management structure and more employee autonomy to make decisions and get away from micromanagement from the top. Think about workforce planning as 80% contractor complement in some departments does not make for a great culture, or retains organizational knowledge
