    Current Employee - Director in Victoria, BC (Canada)

    I have been working at British Columbia Government full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, job security, work-life balance, and opportunities to try new challenges.

    Cons

    Compensation for management and above is poor relative to private sector, and national public sector organizations. The gap between contributor and management salaries is sometimes non-existent at worst, and marginal at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review compensation for management and above, to make it more competitive, and more of a gap between contributor and manager.

    Government salaries aren't really negotiated much, particularly if you are already within the government. It's generally a set increase relative to your current position, and within salary bands.
