It was a pleasure to work at the City of Kitchener

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at City of Kitchener as a contractor for more than 5 years

ProsThe team I worked closely with were very motivated and successful. They always met deadlines, and the lines of communication were always open.

ConsThe same cannot be said for the whole corporation. There are a lot of "old timers" there who are reluctant to see changes and advancements in the workplace. They would fight against the changes we were trying to implement.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Very positive workplace culture; however, monetary compensation is not competitive for senior management roles.

General Manager (Current Employee)
Kitchener, ON (Canada)

I have been working at City of Kitchener

ProsThe senior management team is very positive and has a cooperative and supportive style. The community is growing in very exciting ways. Staff in general are very community-minded.

ConsWork-life balance is difficult to achieve given high expectations and limited staff resources. The City Council can be difficult to work with as many members do not have a long-term community-wide vision.
