      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.

      Advice to Management

      Get to know your staff, get to know the important work they do and recognize them for their hard work.

      I worked at City of Edmonton full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Pay is fair to good

      Cons

      Culture is no great f you are less than a bachelors degree.

      Advice to Management

      Look at all experience not just education. I saw some gifted people get turned down for roles that they would have excelled at for people that had a degree in the field but were not good or suited to the role or the team. This happened repeatedly.

        Disapproves of CEO

        I have been working at City of Edmonton full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Run like private. Good learning opportunity.

        Cons

        Inefficiency prevails at all levels. For public servant pay, and precarious job security, and a private company like workload, you would rather work for an actual private company and have less hassle and more room for growth and opportunity. Upper Management is made of non-industry people from various private sector companies, who don't know how to run a corporation, goes to show why they are here and not working for...

        Advice to Management

        Listen and stop the re-org. Instill job security and family-like culture at all levels. Treat employees like assets (contrary to what it prevails as of now)
