    I have been working at City of Edmonton

    Pros

    Was always treated fairly and professionally. Received an abundance of feedback, especially when I asked for it. The people and staff were well trained in dealing with people...very refreshing. An enjoyable work experience.

    Cons

    Typical government bureauacracy, but this is to be expected...it's the same everywhere. I just went with the flow and everything was fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. The management here is more advanced than any other local government where I have worked. Communication level is good.

    I have been working at City of Edmonton

    Pros

    One of the best work to pay ratio's on the market. A growing government undergoing a massive transformation at all levels. This presents many growth opportunities for the willing. IT department is extremely progressive in very traditional industry. If you want to improve Edmonton, this is the best place to do it. Compensation is above average and every second Friday/Monday off is a very nice addition.

    Cons

    Typical government red tape. Like most government jobs the high performers do not get top dollar compared to private companies and but work just as long. Budgets are tied to city budgets, therefore planning out professional development can be tricky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being more progressive. The youth of the organization really love this.
