    I worked at City of Edmonton as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, and nice people. Hours are the same as full-time staff; hence, the work-days are just the right length.

    Cons

    City has to appease the union...contractors are let go frequently. The goal is to limit contractors to 6 months or less...preferably less. As a result the politics can be bad. The pay is less that what you can make elsewhere too.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more feedback to contractors.

    Allow vertical progression of lower employees too many road blocks for promotions.
