    I worked at Alberta Energy Regulator full-time

    Pros

    You get a lot of time off, people work short days.

    Cons

    There is no clear leadership, groups working against each other.

    Advice to Management

    Need to learn that leadership is about leading people to get results, not making yourself look good

    I have been working at Alberta Energy Regulator full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Producing solutions that actually impacts Albertan's. Some solid employees littered across the organization with strong backgrounds and principle based paradigms.

    Cons

    Prevalent micro-managing leadership styles, control, siloed and narrow thinking. Few enterprise thinkers are being frustrated. Career growth appears to come to the well connected.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the empires and on-going territory protection between the "two core EVPs" and encourage better integrative work, cross division and cross functional. Be bold to re-allocate resources based on work and eliminate dead weight.

    I worked at Alberta Energy Regulator full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits program (HSA, PSA) best I have seen. You earn 2 flex days a month, to be used when and how you want to use them. Great vacation time. Paid by salary. Friendly staff.

    Cons

    Senior leadership talks a lot about "open door policies" and "transparency" but you get slapped on the hand if you try and reach out to senior management, and there is zero transparency. Everyone is overworked, biting off more than they can chew, but no recognition is awarded other than verbal "thank you"'s - if that. Micromanagers, and Managers/leaders who have less experience than the staff are expected to lead projects...

    Advice to Management

    Reward and recognize your existing staff that have been there since the beginning. Handing over roles, and increased salaries to new employees is disheartening to existing staff. Senior management needs to make more of an effort to spend time with their staff.
