    Literally a glass ceiling with promises of better opportunities with no actions whatsoever.

    I have been working at Alberta Health Services

    Pros

    The benefit package and vacation structure seems to be fair. I have met some great people from all aspects of the healthcare industry.

    Cons

    Always the expectation to carry out jobs with little to no incentive or recognition upon completion of work. Little to no learning opportunities in terms of courses, workshops etc. Work life balance focuses primarily on work with little emphasis on life. Manpower given to complete work is completely unreasonable yet expected to be completed within given deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognition, recognition, recognition. Incentive, incentive, incentive. Lead, empower and recognize the staff that are making YOU look good. Just because someone does a good job doesnt mean that extra responsibility and work should be dumped on that person. Utilize the resources given to you more effectively and support staff with the manpower REQUIRED to get the work done.

    Big bureaucracy causes this company to be narrow-minded and unable to be trailblazers

    Pros

    Good pay compared to private

    Cons

    Too many rules, too many managers and upper level. Not much freedom to grow or take on new challenges because they are not part of your job description.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees and lower level management more freedom with frontline decisions.
