    I worked at Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan full-time

    Pros

    -okay to decent salary -relatively stable job bcuz it's like working for government -casual dress code

    Cons

    -not a meritocratic place...very political -'time on post' or length of time in a role matters more for career progress than competency and skill -toxic culture bcuz middle management decisions are driven by fear and reluctance to stand up to senior leadership -you only get target bonus max in your 1st year employed but they don't tell you this when you're hired -jr employees dont feel empowered

    Pros

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