    I worked at City of Edmonton full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Predictability relating to daily work. Good benefits. Opportunity for lateral moves. Union positions provide more job structure.

    Cons

    Leadership lacks vision and accountability for performance. Limited opportunity for growth beyond lateral position changes. Work progresses slowly and wasteful rework. Heavy reliance on and deflection of responsibility to contractors.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at City of Edmonton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The City is trying hard to improve its culture but has a long way to go. Being a large organization with discrete Departments, some Departments and Branches are more successful than others when trying to live the corporate values.

    Cons

    Inability to create a safe workplace where employees feel properly supported. Systemic blame culture, with no management accountability. Cowardly dismissal practices where the tough conversations are completely avoided.

    I have been working at City of Edmonton full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good pay, earned day off program, internal professional development opportunities. Most of the people are helpful and friendly to work with. There’s flexibility in the day, and time goes by quickly.

    Cons

    Working in a large organization presents communication challenges, there’s always change in the organization and reorgs that cause some chaos, fear, and frustration. Some lazy people too who don’t want to be accountable or like to hand off work to others.
