      Pros

      Phenomenal team culture that fosters a healthy work life balance. Plenty of resources for learning and growing within your role.

      Cons

      Being tied to the provincial government means that the business tends to follow their pay freezes

      Pros

      Great pension , here for albertans, great relationships with team members and clients, ability to make your own decisions, work and family balance, decent training, and some career advancements

      Cons

      Favoritism, Nepotism and the fact the new employees can make significant amount more then internal long term employees. I am talking thousands and thousands more a year. (7,000+) - No raises with wage freezes for 4+ years. Existing employees train the new staff that come from other institutions and make much less then the new hire. But internal is a pay freeze. We are losing amazing employees because of this. I would highly recommend that senior management or even executives review their current employees salaries and bring the deserving up to par as the new hired. There is still a gender pay gap that also needs to be addressed.

      Transforming itself into a top notch technology company

      Even though they are a crown corporation and not actually part of the government, they got caught up in the government salary freeze. There have been no raises for a couple years now.

      Pros

      Work from home sometimes , benefits , RRSP

      Cons

      Politics are everywhere. No raises in years due to NDP government starting pay freezes. Lots of people get raises anyway though due to fake promotions now there is no room for people to grow and lots of “leaders” who don’t actually lead any people. It’s easy to dupe someone into giving you a promotion if you suck up (ex. reading some articles about AI doesn’t make you a pro in AI, or because you’ve worked in a branch doesn’t make you an expert in digital CX!) even if you don’t know how to do the job or show results. So much waste and duplication in the transformation/technology team of people doing the same jobs and this leads to people being very territorial and competitive. This whole department is so bloated with people getting hired while certain executives were trying to build an empire. Constant restructures to make senior leadership seem smarter than they are. Systems and approvals are extremely complicated. So much micromanagement due to nosy leaders who don’t actually do work. People get promoted due to favouritism not good work or loyalty. Promotions, nepotism and virtue signaling are the norm.
