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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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.

    Pros

    Lots a of great people, everyone is supper friendly, easy communication streams to other departments

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

    I have been working at City of Kitchener

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Work-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.
