    Developing relationships with client group Good benefits Work/life balance

    Cons

    Toxic and incompetent HR Leadership Team. A lot of the HR Managers/Directors have been around for a long time aka "The Originals." They are very much a command and control style. Especially the one with the British accent. Balant favoritism towards members of the HR team - look who they promote, its normally their friend or someone they feel they can micromanage No team building - the leaders prefer a lack of cohesion on the team so they can maintain their "power"

    I worked at Alberta Health Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    High salary, good benefits, decent people.

    Cons

    Salaries for non-union employees are frozen - what you start with is what you'll probably stay at, so ask for a lot. Near zero decision making or autonomy - pretty much every move you make has to be checked by your manager, and often by her with her director Long periods of idleness - sometimes weeks at a time - with only a handful of emails or phone calls (see "Near zero decision making or autonomy"). People read the news and surf social media a LOT Exceptionally political working environment - lots of cautions about "not letting X [external persons, like doctors] know about that" and "check with me before you say anything to Y [person in another department] about this" Unbelievably lackadaisical IT - I waited seven weeks after starting to get access to the shared drives and databases I needed to do my job. I was given giant stacks of unsorted files and told to "look busy" in the meantime.
