    I worked at Halton Region full-time

    Pros

    Absolutely non. Management is terrible, they bully, threaten, yell for no reason and stress over the simplest of issues. They're not good at dealing with people and personally thing they don't know their job. It's unfortunate that they keep hiring unqualified people for senior roles while the qualified employees can't seem to climb up the ranks. Most employees not in management positions are wonderful and great to work with.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnaround rate. Management lack people skills Constant bullying Manage loves to waste time and resources

    I worked at Halton Region full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I hope if you take a job here, you are at the very least close to home.

    Cons

    CAO with finance skills put in charge without a clue as to how to run an organization or deal with people. The brightest workers have all been severed or have left since she began. What is left is an organization run by her close group of incompetent management within her Department and the CAO's wasting everyone's time with her micro managing. Fear, mistrust, and complete lack of motivation, other than to find a better job, is the general feeling within the ranks.

    Pros

    Close to home. Interesting work, if you ever get to it. Public Sector - 35 Hours a week

    Cons

    The pay is terrible and getting worse. Exceptional performers are given a 2% raise. Lack of decision making capabilities by senior management. It will take years for a big decision to be made Co-workers aren't motivated, lack of compensation or accountability? No recognition for good work.
