Great for getting experience but very poor culture
It's no doubt this plays offers a lot of experience. Remuneration is also tops along with their benefits plan. However, it comes with a great price. Pretty well anyone you ask who has once worked at the municipality will tell you that it is the worse when it comes to culture and treatment of staff by the senior administration. It is a dog eat dog place where you need to keep your head down or you will lose it. Don't speak up because good ideas are not rewarded. What is rewarded is conformance to management.
Pros
pay, benefits, experience
Cons

Excellent place to work but no growth
Best place to work if you just want to do repetitive work and stay at the same position for longest period of time with excellent pay and benefits. I was working with one of the best supervisor I worked with so far.
Pros
Everything
Cons
No growth and location

Great learning opportunity, great benefits and Work life balance. All of these are at the RMWB. The staff and leadership work as a team. If you have the opportunity to work here you will not regret your it.

Great schedule and salary. Horrible upper management.
The upper management at the RMWB is the worst of anywhere I have ever worked. They treat their staff horribly. If you are not a yes man you will not advance. Morale is awful. The staff are treated badly and it shows. Even with the good schedule and decent salary I would never, ever work there again.
Pros
Schedule, salary
Cons
Management, poor morale, treatment of staff, no opportunity to advance

Very busy and interesting place to work
The most enjoyable part of the job was the great people I got to work with; very diverse staff. The duties were different day to day and with it being a very busy department, the time just flew by.
Pros
Salary, benefits, vacation
Cons
Lack of job security for exempt positions

Great compensation, poor culture
Great total compensation program for non-unionized employees. Very poor organization culture. Oftentimes management is in pursuit of individual interests over public interest.

Current Municipal Council and CAO are working hard to rid the organization of the culture of waste, nepotism, low productivity, etc. They need all the support they can get, although their decisions may not be popular to those who stand to lose.

The rmwb
An always changing environment. It is hard to focus on senior management direction, as typically directors change on average in 18 months.
Benefits and salaries are competitive with the industry and the work in in-town.
However the environment is extremely political - of course, this is dependent on department.
Pros
competitive pay
Cons
Extremely political
