I worked at Government of Canada as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Motivated colleagues, good work/life balance, focussed and valuable work in the public interest

Cons

Important to maintain interested by taking on new and frequent challenges. To remain competitive important to continuously upgrade skills and experiences. It is easy to get into a complacent position.

    I have been working at Government of Canada full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful colleagues, fabulous immediate management, meaningful work and good compensation. Very good ongoing training and career opportunities.

    Cons

    Heavy workload and currently very high-stress due to budget cuts. Sometimes test unproven strategies on employees. Uncertainty re: the future of benefits and compensation. No bonuses, stock options, and upcoming conflict with unions -- worrisome.

    Advice to Management

    Actually consult with people who understand the reality of our daily work.
