I have been working at Alberta Health Services full-time (more than an year)

Pros

great people dedicated to make a difference

Cons

dedicated people cannot make a difference

Advice to ManagementAdvice

too much bureacracy and no accountability, constantly talking about change but little to no movement forward-meetings for the sake of meeting and not results oriented. poor performance is rewarded. hard workers given more work.

    I worked at Alberta Health Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was decent and the various benefits were great, given that AHS doesn't really pay for training it's nice to have the Flex benefits which you can put towards training. Liked that they have a pension plan.

    Cons

    Very Big brother like atmosphere, left hand doesn't know what right hand is doing. The politics in this organization is horrible. Not much room for advancement unless you take a position on in another department. They generally don't pay for training, if it's free, no problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a manager is hired, they should be hired based on qualifications and not who they know.

    Doesn't Recommend
