Can be a very stable place to work with many good people

Your experience with the Yukon Government will vary depending which dept. you end up in and who you end up working for. I worked in the dept. of education, which was a very good and rewarding experience overall, though had become very challenging toward the end of my time there largely due to philosophical differences with the direction the dept., and government was taking overall. I worked with many good people and would recommend working for YG given an opportunity as it pays well, provides stability and some assurances. Like any other though it does have rough edges but the good tends to outweigh the bad.

Passionate people doing great work

A great place to be if you're able to find housing. Government of Yukon treats its employees well, entry is 4 weeks paid vacation for term or perm employees. Salary higher than other provincial governments, and benefits package is solid.

It is a good place to work

I really enjoyed working at Yukon Government. My coworker was very supportive. YTG gave the opportunity to each staff had a supportive training and the opportunity to work at other department with a similar job that I had. YTG gave a very good benefit and a fair pay.

Entrenched bureaucratization even when it's not logical.

My experience was poor. Authoritarian management not trained or coached in managing people. No transparency. Communication from higher ups in the form of orders. Expected to carry out duties without question. Ideas suppressed in favour of "that's the way things have always been done." Suggestion of different ways of doing things seen as rebellious and lead to micro managing. Rampant office gossip unaddressed. Culture of ignoring problems and they'll go away.
