    I have been working at City of Mississauga Canada full-time

    Pros

    Salary & benefits are excellent. Schedule is reasonably flexible (but depends on your job). Lots of opportunities if you want to make a difference. Always something new to learn.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be an issue, depending on your job. Like in any company, there can be weak performers that fly under the radar but, because the City is a public-sector entity, there is less incentive to remove them (although the City is not afraid to terminate the worst offenders and is doing this with increasing regularity).

    I have been working at City of Mississauga Canada full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been working at the City for a few years now and enjoy the vacation and time off policies. It is a more progressive city than most municipalities and some managers and most employees are great to work with.There is plenty of opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    Workload is extreme at times with many staff going on leave, burning out, there is little budget for anything. Some horrible managers such as the corporate HR Business Partner widely known to engage in workplace bullying. Favoritism depending on ethnicity sadly still occurring. Pay at mid-afternoon senior level not that great.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair and put problem employees on performance improvement plans or let them go. The CFO needs to realize he is saving money at the expense of the staff, hire more people to help the workload, it is not manageable in many departments.
