I worked at Regional Municipality of Waterloo as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Awesome work experience in the planning department. Full time employees are open to the inexperience of a student in university and offer challenging tasks appropriate to the competency level of the student. Great and interesting projects to work on. Would be a good employer for a career. Pay is very competitive.

Cons

The unity among co-op students is low. Very sectional and there's not much meshing of other sections.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep hiring students. They are the future and can only benefited from your mentorship.

    Pros

    Can be an excellent place to work if you have a reasonable supervisor and co-workers.

    Cons

    It's the people that can make or break or work, not all departments are created equal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop micro managing, stop favouring, be reasonable, don't make assumptions, perceptions can be wrong.

    I have been working at Regional Municipality of Waterloo

    Pros

    You can work hard and really own a project. It is very easy to talk to people at different levels and in different groups to find the help and information you need.

    Cons

    Its frustrating because people who are really lazy don't get in trouble... EVER! And then people who do no work still have to be consulted. Am I a little bitter? Maybee. But cmon.... lazy people who get nothing done .... rage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job guys. Management works really hard and knows lots about all their operations. Crack the whip a little more?
