Giant health authority

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

I have been working at Alberta Health Services full-time for more than a year

ProsChance to do meaningful work with bright people
Competitive salary; defined benefit pension plan

ConsThe bureaucracy makes it very difficult to get things done, particularly if you're new to the organization. The expense scandals of 2012 continue to hover over the organization, making it very difficult to travel even when required and to claim reasonable travel expenses. Rolling changes in expense claim forms (very confusing) challenging. Caution re salary vs take-home expectations -- deductions in the range of 42% can be a surprise. Don't expect a nice workspace

Advice to Senior ManagementPatient care is important, so is employee morale.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Plenty of growing opportunities in this big, new organization

Executive Director (Current Employee)
Red Deer, AB (Canada)

I have been working at Alberta Health Services full-time for more than a year


Pros: Multiculturalism is a definite plus as one gets to work with people from people from different background. Growing opportunities are also aplenty if one stays… Cons: In order to climb to the top, one might want to be good in playing politics. Departmental structures… Advice to Senior Management: Way too many rigid and outdated policies are in place. Hire someone who has a vision, someone with a track record of achievements, NOT someone… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

Great individuals, but currently disorganized as an Enterprise

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Alberta Health Services


Pros: Vacation package is comparable to other organizations. Cons: Salary is not comparable to other organizations. Advice to Senior Management: Provide clear Vision and Mission with traceability to current workload… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
