    I have been working at Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great purpose: helping secure pensions for the teachers of Ontario. The plan has a surplus, so the atmosphere is positive.

    Cons

    Location: Yonge & Finch - there's not much to do in the area. But an offset is that the commute may be shorter, depending on where you live,

    Advice to Management

    Modernize talent development & office layout; implement a work-from-home policy

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

    Pros

    Work life balance Friendly culture - not as cut-throat as sell side Very interesting work Strong comp package, particularly given work life balance

    Cons

    Location at Yonge and Finch / food options as a result - waste a lot of time traveling to and from downtown People making a lot of money are very "comfortable" and this comfort is institutionally entrenched. Creates a glass ceiling for up and coming high performers. Most groups are "inverted pyramids"

    Advice to Management

    Move downtown Improve talent management processes

    I have been working at Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Top performer consistently for 25 years, deep investment skills in public and private markets, and truly focused on global relationships, innovative and yet humble

    Cons

    Difficult to find a lot of cons. You could argue that location (Yonge and Finch) is an issue, but the subway commute is pretty smooth

    Advice to Management

    Do not change your focus on private investments

    I worked at Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan

    Pros

    Lots of learning opportunities, everyone is very friendly and willing to answer any questions that you have.

    Cons

    Location - Yonge & Finch The culture is very professional and serious - sometimes you feel a bit awkward in the office

    Advice to Management

    Try to foster a more friendly and open culture to make employees feel more comfortable. Other than that, everything was great.

    I worked at Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan for less than a year

    Pros

    1. Good work-life balance (as compared to other financial institutions) 2. Great compensation (front office pays a lot) 3. Friendly people (a good number of people eat lunch in the amazing common room)

    Cons

    Location is not in downtown. It is at Yonge-Finch. It could be a pro depending on where you live. But I personally prefer a downtown location.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The pension fund has been doing a great job at investing the money and generating superior returns.
