        Negative Outlook
        Approves of CEO

        I have been working at Alberta Health Services full-time for more than 10 years

        Pros

        The benefits are very good and the pension will compensate for lack of competitive salary.

        Cons

        People with authority put into positions of power who have no credentials or experience. Process and political undermining is valued, achievements and knowledge are minimized. Non - Healthcare Professionals are treated like school children. If you want to stagnate for the tradeoff of financial security without a raise ever, then AHS is for you.

        Advice to Management

        People live in fear of retribution. Stop promoting self promoting unqualified bullies who do not have AHS's best interests at heart. Ive seen more good people leave in the last 5 years not because of compensation but because of the toxic culture. The new breed of leaders are like people off of a Survivor show, and you are breading more disfunction.
