    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Government of Alberta full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, reasonable hours and time off, theoretically a lot of different opportunities.

    Cons

    A lot of office politics, employees are generally there just to collect a cheque, moving up requires that you be a favorite with upper management (or be a part of the Old Boys Club). Salaries aren’t great and that’s probably why everyone does the bare minimum.

    Advice to Management

    Start appreciating your staff and treating them as valuable pieces of your operation instead of dispensable fillers.

    I have been working at Government of Alberta full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I like the pay and benefits and job security.

    Cons

    Political staff have a huge effect on staff. Depending on their mandate they can cut jobs and make work conditions unrealistic.
