    I have been working at Ontario Ministry of Government Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Depending you your Ministry, you could be working from 9am to 7pm every day with constant overtime during the weekend, or a standard 9-5 at the more relaxed ministries.

    -Good work/life balance
    -co-workers are friendly/nice because of job stability (and there are less occurrences where people stab you in the back like in the private sector)
    -Good pension

    Cons

    -Pays less than private. I was offered about 20k +bonus more to work in a private company.
    -I've seen instances where people with no degrees make close to 6 figures but do absolutely nothing because they are friends with the hiring manager.
    -Wage freezes and public cuts to salary.
    -does not reward performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Tax-payers and management need to understand that people come to government expecting to be paid less but receive a good benefits in return. The only thing happening right now is that salary's are being lowered and benefits are being cut.. All it does is force top performing people to leave the company while the dead weights stay behind. The people that could perform leave because their skills can get them a similar to higher paying job elsewhere (with equal benefits/worklife balance) while the people that don't have skills stay where they are. As time goes on, you're only left with more incompetent people.

    2) Need a way to reward performance.

    I worked at Ontario Ministry of Government Services as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn, relaxed atmosphere, kind colleagues, flexible with working hours.

    Cons

    Lack of formal training - best for those of have an idea of what they want to do and take initiatives. Lots of paperwork that can be repetitive and uninteresting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devise a plan for your interns or the experience suffers.
