    I have been working at Yukon Government full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The Yukon Government let’s me put my family first and provides wonderful support. Offers a lot of training opportunities and keeps the bar high for other employers to follow.

    Cons

    It is public service so sometimes you can feel like a cog in a machine stuck in bureaucracy.

    I worked at Yukon Government full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    None. Literally nothing good I can say. Oh, wait, they pay well and there's a lot of vacation time.

    Cons

    Bloated and top-heavy in management, most of whom couldn't get similar jobs in large southern governments so came here instead. Most people have no work ethic. No one has a plan and everything becomes a crisis.
