No loyalty to employees
Technologist (Former Employee), Lethbridge,AbApril 7, 2016
Pros: Decent benefits as in time off. Oodles of excuses available to get paid time off.
Cons: You are nothing but a disposable number
You are just a disposable number. Unless you know how to suck up, you are NOTHING!!! You can work your butt off and it means NOTHING!! Management preaches accountability, respect, integrity but Don't practise what they preach. No matter how much dedication and loyalty you show, it means nothing unless you suck up to the right people. A lot of low life backstabbers employed by the GoA. Useless welfare cases are kept on. Show more ambition than management and youre gone, first lame excuse they can find. Any other company tries to find their employees another position before laying people off. GoA turns you out the door and then comes up with a feeble effort and lame excuses to find you another position.

Working for the Government of Alberta was a very rewarding experience.
Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), ABFebruary 3, 2016
Pros: Training was encouraged in areas that benefit your working environment.

A typical work day with the Government of Alberta offered me many opportunities to experience varied tasks and skill sets. I truly valued the environment of working within a team that strives to make a difference in the lives of the people of Alberta. Working with a purpose fits into my personal values setting, and was provided within this organization.
