Employer Review: Government of Alberta

Programs (Former Employee)
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

ProsThe GoA is a good employer for things such as work arrangement flexibility, alternate work arrangements and developmental opportunities.

ConsDepending on the Division or Ministry you work in, the work can be extremely high volume with very, very short deadlines (ie: reports and complicated briefing packages with a one or two day turnaround due date). The closer you get to working at or with the Executive level, often the information turnaround is frequently on a need-it-now panic basis, which leave little time to produce good outcomes.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Frustrating and Interesting

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Edmonton, AB (Canada)

    I worked at Government of Alberta full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: Good salary, benefits and time off including flex time. Interesting… Cons: Not a lot of autonomy with a lot of responsibility. Decisions are rarely made and issues not addressed promptly. Most Human Resource consultants are weak… Advice to Senior Management: Don't ask questions about issues you don't want to address. Give Managers and staff narrow… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
