I worked at City of Edmonton full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Unparalleled work life balance, and if you are motivated you will rise fast

Cons

Since it's Union, there are a LOT of useless people still on board and that can be demotivating to work with

    Former Employee - Systems Analyst II in Edmonton, AB (Canada)

    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.
