I have been working at City of Calgary full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Work to Live rather live to work
nice people
managed pressure
lots of opportunities
Job security

Cons

maturity level vary a lot across the company. It really depends which team you are part of and how its being run by your manager. But I see the trend now moving upward (positive).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a well structured way of delivering your day to day and strategic services. Need more focus on strengthening the governance at various levels and across domains and find real opportunties to reduce operational costs to help bringing the taxes down. I think the need of time is being realized by some good people who are looking ways for new positive change.
