    Bureaucracy gets really complicated.
    Traditional Hierarchical organization. IT is very top heavy.

    Former Employee - Parks Worker
    Former Employee - Parks Worker
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    It was a great position for a student. I went to school in the winer time and made 17 dollars an hour in the summer. 4 days work weeks!

    Cons

    My biggest complain was that there was no lunch break. There was two 20 minutes for a 9 work work week and that's it.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest to the City of Calgary to keep a closer watch over employees. Government work was so inefficient!
