The environment is very toxic. Employees are treated like the dirt under management’s feet. You are just a disposibke number and mean nothing to anyone there. If a customer complains, it will always be your fault regardless.
Pros
Money is not terrible and the customers we're great
Cons

Recommend working for the Region. It was a great learning experience and you get hands on project experience. Everyone is welcoming and open to any questions you have.

Would love to see hiring practices change so there are less contract jobs and more permanent positions. Employer is helpful, courteous and tries to have your best interest at heart.

Great atmosphere and relationships between fellow employees but management is terrible. Managers constantly deny flexible schedules, question people about their sick days and try to deny employees the right to take sick time. When inclement weather arises, individuals who live out of town may have to leave without pay or use vacation if they wish to get home safely. Benefits are constantly being downgraded while workloads increase with no new employee positions hired to balance the workload. It is hard at times to meet deadlines. Pay is comparable to other corporations for government organizations although fees deducted have increased greatly and fee increases are greater than bargained pay increases. Stress levels are high among employees.
Pros
Only have to work 7 hours per day.
Cons
Have to tolerate being micromanaged and talked down to. Also, may be denied rights for sick days and the ability to make up missed time.
