Provincial government has taken a hostile approach to unionized public employees. Increasing monetary gap between management and staff employee wages. Bullying behavior is rampant throughout the system.
NFS within Central Zone of NSHA is poorly managed. Utility workers are deeply unhappy with communications of room service transition from upper management, and lower management is overworked, often being forced to do the work of utility workers due to staffing shortages that cannot be resolved until the reason behind high turnover rate is addressed.
I have worked in many departments within the NSHA and favouritism and nepotism are definitely part of the work environment. Managers micro-manage even though the majority of them never have done the lower level jobs at all.
I've worked in BC, Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia. By far the salary and work-life balance have been superior working and living in Nova Scotia.
Colleagues on the work team are truly collaborative and respectful.
Great salary and benefits, too.
