After arriving at the workplace I would log into the computer, read business emails and begin reviewing my tasks for the day. Then i would execute all tasks assigned to me. The environment is fast paced and you have to be able to adapt to the demands that were required of you. This I think helped with being patient. Managers that I worked under were courteous and helpful.Because of the trust I was given I liked the fact that I was given the opportunity to take the ball and run with it. In other words I was left to do the work with little to no supervision. The hardest part of the job was the travel aspect. There is virtually no parking accommodation at the job site. I enjoyed the relaxing environment at the job site
En tant que fonctionnaire, nous sommes souvent associés à des bureaucrates. Cependant, travailler pour ECCC dans la section opérationnelle du Service Météorologique du Canada représente un défis de taille qui plaira aux employés motivés et à la recherche de défis. L'objectif est de maintenir des réseaux (radars, station, etc) à travers le vaste territoire du Canada.
There is little if no chance to advance in the government unless you are management and in Ottawa. IF you can obtain permanent (indeterminate) status, then you have good benefits and a stable, but slightly lower average salary. If you are permanent and they eliminate your position, they have to give you three comparable alternate job offers. Pretty secure. However, the ability to obtain indeterminate status is hard, they will string you along with contracts or term employment. Similar to university tenureship. For the most part, and enthusiasm for innovation and change will be stomped out of the employees. Management is too irrational.
(if permanent) Lots of benefits. Quite Stable. Great for families.
No advancement, hard to get permanent, rejects innovation
Typical government job; a middling salary in exchange for great government benefits. In my department, there were no new software initiatives to be apart of, and so the majority of work was maintenance of existing software projects. The subject matter was interesting enough to create periods of interesting and challenging work, however this was punctuated by periods of extreme boredom. With a culture that has little motivation to innovate or improve internal processes, there was little room for initiative in a junior role to assuage the boredom or to help in skill development.
Flex hours, pension, health, dental
Little room for initiative, often not enough to do.
Great experience working in a federal public service environment (Environment and Climate Change Canada). Management and co-workers were fantastic and attributed to a positive workplace where growth was continuously encouraged.
Great learning experience
Job security (federal openings are scarce)
