    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Government of Alberta full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good for the work hours and relative lack of stress Generally nice people Secure job

    Cons

    Very slow, boring, and unwilling to change Very little reward for merit. Difficult to get hired, or be promoted without knowing the right people. You will likely learn very little, and get stuck here (due to salary, job security, and lack of exit options). If that is not a concern, then its fine.

    Advice to Management

    Hold managers accountable for performance. Don't just be worried about the appearance of failure, but care about facilitating success.

    Cons

    Government structure. Strong sense of seniority among certain staff. Flexibility can be hard to work around when you're used to rigidity. Restructuring can cause stress.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the staff and people of the province to guide the business outcomes.
