My workplace culture is great where I get to learn and enjoy working with my co-workers. My work let me spend time with my family as well therefore my work life balance is good. My manager listens to my problems if I have any and provide me solutions as well.
I left the city due to personal reasons and mainly additional stress that I was facing that time. While I wanted to join back, with more experience and jollifications, I am not given an opportunity so for.
Working for the City was great. Many opportunities to apply in different business units from within. They offered wellness sessions from meditation, yoga, nutrition, gyms and riding bicycles by the river! Ever hear of a company doing that? The services offered to employees really blossomed over the years and the City is a great place to work.
I enjoyed working at the City very much. I received the job through Mark Staffing. I worked for a couple of the Councillors during the summer of 2015 and I worked on Reception for the remaining time I was there. Everyone was very nice and supportive.

The city of Calgary was a good summer job for a short period of time. But the work environment was bad at best. You have no ability to advance in the industry and no changes could be made to staff due to the union.
City of CALGARY is a nice place to work. The people are helpful and friendly. There are always possibilities towards job advancement. If you work hard you will reap from your efforts. Communication between departments could be improved. I would recommend the City of CALGARY!
First of all my boss was the very best in terms of leadership and caring. As in most corporate environments there are colleagues who just don’t know how to get along with others and this decreases the value of your job. The pay and benefits are the great as is the work/life balance. The city is different in that City Counsellors and top brass pass down orders and directives that are almost impossible for a manager to complete. The managers then look like the bad guys when passing directives to the average workers. Again this is the difficulty working in a corporate atmosphere. Otherwise the City takes care of their employees well, especially at the Fire Department.

This is a great career and employer but with cut backs and other outside influences looming it has become a very unknown and unstable future type workplace. Very stressful not knowing what is happening day to day and no potential to advance or increase income! After contract negotiations the workers were left to live with ZERO increases for 3 years while inflation and the cost of living in Calgary continuously skyrockets out of control! It's Impossible to survive or even buy a home on a single income for a ridiculous amount of work and health and safety concerns with no wage increases while a loaf of bread is $4.00 and higher ! Totally unacceptable from a city employer from my vast career experiences!
