    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at City of Winnipeg full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Likely have job security for life.

    Cons

    They have no interest in encouraging workers to do a good job or more for the public, only that you don't cause anyone higher than you any additional work or inconvenience. No opportunities for advancement and the union is in bed with HR so they no longer offer the workers any significant protection or support. Left after 8 years so I could actually do some good for my community rather than get yelled at for cutting an additional patch of weeds that the neighbours were complaining about beside a park, because they would now expect the city to take care of it....

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at City of Winnipeg full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Interesting projects that benefit the community, guaranteed pension, good health benefits, lots of job security, a lot of upcoming retirements so room for advancement, lots of internal training but little interest in spending money to send staff for external training or conferences

    Cons

    Frustrating work environment, extremely risk adverse, endless meetings, terrible communication, silos, lack of direction, constant political posturing and interference by councillors who only care about what happens in their ward but not the rest of the city, short staffed, poor employee performance rarely addressed
