    I worked at City of Edmonton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Earned Day Off (EDO) program was fantastic, pay was excellent, benefits were fairly good and some interesting work.

    Cons

    Management was horrific, culture is really poor especially in the comms area and the way they treat employees is pretty terrible. Bullying , harassment and disrespectful behaviour is common. It was especially terrible if you had any kind of mental or physical health problems. It was a very challenging and chaotic place to work.

    Advice to Management

    A complete and total overhaul of processes, management, expectations, HR policies and well everything. Keep what works and discard the rest.

    Pros

    People who born in Canada, who spend more than half of there work time socialize and chat around, will get the chance to promote or move to a “better” position.

    Those who work diligently will stay in base level cover the work load forever.

    Advice to Management

    It’s something from top to bottom.
