Good people - questionable culture

Good people. Culture is not very good at all. Not a lot of advancement or opportunity to grow. Management and staff feel siloed - not collaborative.

Excellent benefits and some opportunity for advancement

The regional municipality of york provided great benefits that were 100% paid for by the organization; which these days is unheard of. It is a unionized environment (other then HR/management) so advancements can be few and far between and working between management and the unionized staff can be a difficult process. Very well paid jobs and movement up the salary grid through a dedicated performance review process (bonuses for non-union staff

Pros

benefits, salary

Cons

Union/management conflicts

Stay away from this politically correct over managed bloated organization

Terrible work environment. They like to keep everyone bubble wrapped. They don’t want anyone thinking for themselves or having an opinion. Too many managers and supervisors for so few workers. Management out of touch with operations side of things. No room for advancement. No permanent positions. Contract to contract. Do not waste your time.

Pros

Good hours.

Cons

Everything else

Management not held to standards

Payroll - salary and benefits are good Work/Life balance - can be quite good Culture - senior management try to promote a healthy work environment with room to grow Typical though (for this department) - Do not stay in one position for more than 2 years or you will be typecast in your role. Management does not encourage any type of career growth and external hires fill the majority of new hires. Any expressed dissatisfaction with the ability to take internal courses, take on additional responsibilities or new roles is not addressed in any meaningful way. There are too many management levels and not enough review of the "work" that management is doing. More areas should have 360 feedback reviews; senior management should act on those reviews and have strict and thorough follow up to ensure that real change occurs.

Pros

co-workers are good; pay and benefits are good

Cons

poor management

Pros

Would have been good if it was a permanent job

Cons

Public Transportation was not available

Typical government job

Lots of bureaucracy. Weird hiring transition from temporary to permanent as you will have to reinterview for your own job. Not recommended for anyone who thrives on deadlines as they're meaningless here.

Outstanding employer with amazing workforce

It was a pleasure to work with York Region and I look forward to future opportunities to go back. They had flexible work weeks but also offered set hours. They provided us with the necessary tools that we needed to get our job completed. Staff were friendly and facilitated a learning environment.
