Ward Clerk in Lunenburg, NS

Great place to work
A great place to work if you have experience to advance but if not it takes time to climb the ladder. Benefits are good if you have a certain percent position.

Great workplace
Great place to work, lots of benefits, always learning something new and meeting new people from all backgrounds. The work feels very meaningful, however, there is a totem pole to climb, which is expected.

One of the most unorganized organizations I've ever worked in
So top-down that noone gets anything done. They want to be innovative, but their org structure is archaic and their communication is dreadful. They want to be evidence based but everything they do is just based on what 'the boss' wants, not what the evidence says.
Assistant Manager - Maintenance in Halifax, NS
on 11 April 2022
Think very, very hard before accepting an offer here.
NSHA is just an OK place to work. The salary, job security, and benefits are the only good things this employer has to offer. You will, in time, be disgusted by the bloat and dormancy that is universally accepted, and promoted. It is a very middle-management heavy organization, yet for all the management, no one wants to make a decision and there is no accountability. Collective agreements are barely followed, and barely upheld, consider it have no union representation. Amalgamation has stalled which is funny because it never got started. There is little interest in changing for the better or being efficient. There is a very strong hierarchy here too, good luck if you're near the bottom because you will barely be appreciated or respected. You will not be working for a cutting edge, patient and healthcare focused, and innovative organization. Money is never spent in the right direction. All of this is the biggest contributor to why healthcare access and quality is poor in this province. If you can sometimes show up, do the bare minimum, ignore how poorly it is ran, ignore the cultural issues, and appreciate job security with a decent pension and benefits, you'll be okay.
