    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at City of Calgary full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work to Live rather live to work
    nice people
    managed pressure
    lots of opportunities
    Job security

    Cons

    maturity level vary a lot across the company. It really depends which team you are part of and how its being run by your manager. But I see the trend now moving upward (positive).

    Advice to Management

    Find a well structured way of delivering your day to day and strategic services. Need more focus on strengthening the governance at various levels and across domains and find real opportunties to reduce operational costs to help bringing the taxes down. I think the need of time is being realized by some good people who are looking ways for new positive change.
