I have been working at Government of Canada full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The Pension and benefits are very good with a good work-life balance. There is ample job security even though some departments are laying people off at the moment

Cons

Low morale
Progression to Management is sometimes based on how long you've been there instead of skills at leading people

Advice to Management

Don't micro-manage

    I have been working at Government of Canada full-time

    Pros

    Nice benefits package, safe working environment (people are are very well-behaved)

    Cons

    You see a lot of wasting of money and can not do anything about it. Things could be done better, but people are afraid to try. Little vacation time

    Advice to Management

    You have hired 'the best and the brightest', let them think and come up with the answers the country needs.

    I worked at Government of Canada full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good environment. It's not the greatest place for innovation or creativity - I felt a lot of my ideas and contributions were shot down.

    Cons

    Lazy people, government is axing employees at the moment, so low morale. It's a good job if you are used to the 9 to 5 work life.
