High energy workplace with many conflicting demands
Sr. Policy Analyst and Advisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 29 January 2019
The team spirit was very good. The workload was extremely heavy and there needs to be improvements in administration of how work happens. They could also use more staff to assist with the work demands. The passion about the nature of the work was extraordinary. People were inspired by the positive changes they were able to assist clients in attaining.
Good time spirit and sense of accomplishment by meeting client needs.
Extremely heavy workload that could create a sense of never feeling on top of things.
Great department to gain valuable skills and learn about the development of Canada's Indigenous population

- gained valuable skills relating to internal federal government functions - many networking opportunities - management found meaningful work for me even as a student in an entry-level position - some opportunities for full-time employment after graduation
