    I have been working at Alberta Health Services part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of extra shifts to pick up, lots of benefits, good team work, many postions to choose from to expand your career.

    Cons

    Can be very intense working in that environment, working short staffed, some shift schedules not ideal for young families with very young kids.

    A well-funded organization with weak management and short-sighted vision in non-clinical areas

    I worked at Alberta Health Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, job opportunities, great work-life balance.

    Cons

    There is a very uneven distribution of management skill sets in non-clinical departments. In some departments, managers are very skillful and commited, and work extremely hard. In others, key management and executive positions are filled in with people lacking skills, knowledge or experience. Expensive, long-term projects can be undertaken without a long term strategy or clear vision resulting in huge loss of money. Subtle but persistent bullying is common. A proliferation of 'directors' who don't appear to manage or direct anyone yet command huge salaries. Overall, there is lack of strategic planning and leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a clear strategy and hire people into executive/management/directing positions that fit the job requirements rather than based on internal recommendations or credentials alone. Take bullying complaints seriously.
