    Current Employee - Security Engineer in Brampton, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at City of Brampton, Ontario full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The salary perks and general working atmosphere were fantastic. This was definitely a team by team experience. However, most of the team leads were really great with only a few cowboys

    Cons

    The overly structured slow moving nature of the business. Very little changed without extensive deliberation so being on the leading edge for any technology was unlikely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to route out the few lifers who are clearly just marking time waiting for their pension to kick in

    Pros

    Good if you are desperate for money and if you do not care about moving up.

    Cons

    Nepotism, Racism, Got yelled at in front of all my co-workers. Education plays little in getting the job. Depends on who you know and who you suck up to. Employers do not like to change and are barely accessible to deal with supervising issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more available to deal with situations

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at City of Brampton, Ontario

    Pros

    Overall, the City of Brampton is an ok place to work; having come from the private sector, the work life balance is a great change of pace. My co-workers are very friendly and kind.

    Cons

    The pace of work is extremely slow; decisions take forever to get made which can get very frustrating. A process that takes a few days/weeks in the private sectors takes months at this organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline and automate processes; reduce inefficiencies where possible. Look past the historical way of doing things and embrace new ideas, technologies and approaches.
