    Pros

    They pay ridiculously well in my field, unfortunately. To the point where it's hard to consider another job, because it would mean a 20% cut in salary. And unless the province decides to do cutbacks, job security is pretty high.

    Cons

    However, top management has absolutely no relevance to the people on the ground, and centralized systems mean that communication is minimal. As a new employee, don't expect much beyond an employee number - orientation is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    You may be in it for the politics, but some of us are here because we believe in education.
