    Pros

    -People are friendly, professional and collaborative -Good Senior Leadership Team that is committed to the Organizations values. - Organization is committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace - Very good benefits including flex time, compressed work week, telework, performance pay -Strong staff participation in the United Way Campaign -I have worked in Federal Government, For-profit, Non-profit, Private Sector and this continues to be my favourite place to work. I really enjoy the people and the organizational culture.

    Cons

    - Decentralized budget oversight amongst departments creates a two tier system which allows Departments to empire build - Systemic pay parity issues unintentionally create pockets of the organization that are "pink collar ghettos", particularly in support departments.

    Pros

    Great people. Good benefits. Nice office environmental if you are working in the Administrative Centre.

    Cons

    Unionized environment means there will be times you scratch your head at how some people have the jobs they do. The organization has taken away so many perks that it's now more attractive to work in the private sector). There is a lack of advancement potential within the organization.
