    I have been working at City of Edmonton

    Pros

    Lots of room to move around and/or up, security of unionized strucutre, benefits and compensation are slightly above average for most people (although if you're a high performer it won't compare with private industry)

    Cons

    like most governments environments its a bureaucracy, its easy to lose focus on what you're trying to do with your career, the work can sometimes be mundane if your manager is not on top of planning projects, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    project management is key to keep people engaged and challenged.
