I was continually impressed by the positive corporate culture. Co-workers were happy to assist in other areas and for projects other than their own. People genuinely seemed happy to work here and there was seldom the type of complaining that is so often seen in many workplaces - especially government workplaces. Pay and benefits were comparable to other government jobs, and higher than most private sector jobs.

You are treated nice till you get hurt, they turn there back on you and treat you like an outsider. Not a life time commitment job, you get hurt and they move on.
Pros
Good benifits
Cons
They don't care about others

Don't join the Business side of Sturgeon County. They've grown too fast and have not implemented the practices they expect management to follow. I was hired as a BA, and brought into a mess of a situation where I was supposed to be a PM, a procurement officer (where no processes were in place), tester, trainer, quality assurance, change management, etc. Which would be better if the SMEs and project sponsors understood PMI practices.
Pros
none
Cons
theft, and use of profanity

I quite enjoy working for Sturgeon County. The hours are great, and the work isn't overly difficult. The work comes in waves, as it is mostly reported by civilians. It is nice to have a surprise every day you go to work, never knowing what awaits you. Some days you work very hard, some not so much. They are understanding, but you are not babied. You must be able to take care of yourself and follow safety policy without someone nagging you along all the time. The atmosphere is great, I have gotten along well with almost everyone, and have made several good friends outside work. The work demographic is young, and is suited for mature, independent individuals. There is plenty of opportunity to learn and move up the job ladder. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic job that pays very well, seasonal or permanent. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting up at a restaurant or bar after work. The hardest part was repairing bridges, as it uses a fair amount of muscle, and it's normally really hot out at that time of the year.
Pros
Relaxed atmosphere
Cons
Farmer's tan

We worked independently with clients. I enjoyed the clients but there was definitely a lack of them. You only got paid once all of the sessions with the clients were completed so that could mean every two months or possibly more.There was good training but not enough money coming in on a regular basis.
Pros
good training
Cons
not enough work.
