    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at District of Saanich full-time

    Pros

    Some really nice people work there.

    Cons

    Worked in IT. Projects are mismanaged and way over budget. Results in projects being cancelled due to overspending. This is tax payers dollars that are being spent. Management likes to point fingers and blame staff, when in actuality they need to look at their own poor decisions. The IT department runs on old, outdated applications and networks. Salary is lower than other districts in Victoria.
