I have been working at City of Calgary as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Good team here, very supportive, good work-life balance with the flex hours and the 35 hour work week. They have an in-house mentoring program for employees. I understand that the benefit package. vacation and pension are good.

Cons

It can be difficult to get on permanently. The hiring process is a little mysterious.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide ways to help temporary staff become permanent and interview feedback.

    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.
