    I worked at City of Edmonton as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, and nice people. Hours are the same as full-time staff; hence, the work-days are just the right length.

    Cons

    City has to appease the union...contractors are let go frequently. The goal is to limit contractors to 6 months or less...preferably less. As a result the politics can be bad. The pay is less that what you can make elsewhere too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more feedback to contractors.

    low pay and too many deductions make the same wage as a 1st year apprentice in the private sector. Pension benefits are low to retiring employees. pension scheme not very transparent plans to increase retirement age to 67 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow vertical progression of lower employees too many road blocks for promotions.
