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.

Don't trust your manager too much

York Region taught me that, when you work hard but don't get a good review, get out. I hope you work for better managers than I worked for. I like to think the good managers outweigh the bad.

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

Great Benefits

Excellent benefits and salary, not much room for advancement. Typical day started in office for 1 hour then out in the field for the remainder of the day, interacting with the public. Little management required, a lot of independence to complete your tasks and assignments. Co-workers were excellent. Top 100 employers in province.

Pros

Freedom to set your own day's assignments

Cons

little to no advancement
