    I have been working at Alberta Health Services full-time

    Pros

    AHS is a good public agency to work for. The leadership is working very hard to provide the best health services in Canada. Having worked for several government agencies in various roles, AHS is the best one I've worked for.

    Cons

    It's a government agency. Lots of limitations related to budget, politics and ability to change. Salary is good but I could make more in the private sector but my I chose work/life balance over money.
