I worked at City of Edmonton full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Great coworkers, they really help make work fun
- Consistent Hours
- Immediate management is constructive, approachable and friendly
- Decent wage

Cons

- Senior management is often distant, if not completely inaccessible
- Management is slow to enact changes
- The city is too keen to enact broad policies without considering the impact they will have for employees

Advice to Management

Become more accessible to average employees (reply to emails maybe?) and take the time to understand what an average day looks like for employees so you can better understand their concerns.

    Pros

    Was always treated fairly and professionally. Received an abundance of feedback, especially when I asked for it. The people and staff were well trained in dealing with people...very refreshing. An enjoyable work experience.

    Cons

    Typical government bureauacracy, but this is to be expected...it's the same everywhere. I just went with the flow and everything was fine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The management here is more advanced than any other local government where I have worked. Communication level is good.
