Awesome place, no complaints thus far. Pay and venerate great, hours are great and friendly environment. Only downfall is you get laid off the first year so you start from zero again after recall.

The corporations among different team such as web server team, web service team, database team, security and development and support team are good. We have a scrum meeting every day.

I decided to write a review but I am only giving them a one star to help bring their ratings to a more realistic level. They should be about maybe a three. This is one of those places if they do not like you and they want an excuse to get rid of you, then they will. I worked hard for them and they let me go. I don't hold grudges against them. This review is to just tell you to be very careful. Good luck

Great to work with.Wish the budget had not slashed my position. Felt appreciated and valued even as a contractor from day 1. Staff made me feel at home and the workplace was positive and intelligent.

Under the city of Calgary's employment, I gained an amount of practical experience that I hope will aid in my future career. Working with children is always difficult but due to the organization and maturity of my coworkers the issues that came up were swiftly dealt with. I was given enough freedom to perform my duties and complete my program fully.
Pros
Organization
Cons
Approachability

You're just a number Management is stuck in their own ways, have a more efficient idea? Don't bother. If it makes sense, they don't like you Politics and different personalities and can become quite bs after awhile. Started off as a great place... That's where I'll end it
