Worked in IS department and it felt like a dictatorship

Systems Analyst (Former Employee)
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

ProsThe pay was decent and the various benefits were great, given that AHS doesn't really pay for training it's nice to have the Flex benefits which you can put towards training. Liked that they have a pension plan.

ConsVery Big brother like atmosphere, left hand doesn't know what right hand is doing. The politics in this organization is horrible. Not much room for advancement unless you take a position on in another department. They generally don't pay for training, if it's free, no problem.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen a manager is hired, they should be hired based on qualifications and not who they know.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
