Morale breaker
Safety officer (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg10 January 2015
Half of your day is spent on justifying the other half of your day.
Workplace Safety and health has very low morale.
Workers are afraid to make decisions.
The best part of the job is the direct interaction with the public.
The worst part of the job are all the stifling policies.
Pros
Vacation, benefits, pay
Cons
Red tape, politics, and Morale

rewarding work, excellent executive management
Manager (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB14 November 2013
A typical day at work involves being around the same team I've worked with for the most part for my 13 years in the organization. We develop together. There is a wonderful team spirit. The hardest part of my job is telling people we can't try out their great ideas because (insert reason here, usually budget concerns). The best part of my job is knowing as soon as I get up in the morning that I get to spend my day with a cheerful group of dedicated public servants. Also, it's great to know I'll learn something new this day.
Pros
benefits and vacation leave, opportunities to evolve as society's interests and needs change, lots of opportunity to move around the organization and try out different jobs
Cons
unfortunately, often too little recognition for ideas and hard work
