    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Alberta Health Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for skilled/experienced professionals.
    Many sites/locations to choose from.

    Cons

    High turnover in organization is one reason for lots of opportunities.
    Compensation is ok.
    Union environment for non-management and exempt staff can be exhausting at time (both time wise and mentally, since many union employees only does the bare minimum to make sure they get a pay check).
    Some decisions may be politically based rather than what is the right thing to do.

    Advice to Management

    Let decisions and leadership be driven by skill set and experience, not by the social hierarchy.
    For example: doctors are skilled at delivering clinical care, and often most are not good leaders.
