Registered Nurse - Oncology | Lougheed, AB | Sep. 2, 2020
Extremely poor management at Both Services, with no concise direction.
Poor initiation, no job support, basically left on my own to figure things out. Extremely poor management who did not care that there were bully employees, did nothing about them. No rhyme or reasons to decisions "Because I said so". Found management screaming at employees several times. Was not reported as most of the employees have families and needed the pay check. It seemed like an "old girls" club where its who you know not what you know. Obviously wrong people in management.
ProsAbsolutely None other than some other employees and physicians were great to work with, appreciated all efforts
ConsNo orientation, extremely poor management with no direction, only those that were in the "old girls club" succeeded, Management was "because I said so", found screaming at other employees at times, were only worried about when the food truck arrived, not taking care of patients, poor work environment.

Challenging
The position was challenging and self-satisfying. Management was fantastic to work with including understanding and compassionate. The hardest part of this role was incorporating change in a challenging situation.

Pharmacy Specialist | Edmonton, AB | Nov. 15, 2018
Interesting and challenging work
Interesting projects to work on, but under high pressure. Consultants must have ability to deal with politics and unions. Great work life balance and benefits.

Average employment opportunity, no room for growth or training.
I do administrative support,maintenance, technical support for AHS. The job pay's well. However, there is no opportunity for growth or advancement. Hardest part of the job is working in a solo environment while micro managing dozens of tasks that require daily upkeep. Most enjoyable part of the job is the freedom of independence.
ProsGreat Pay
ConsNo room for advancement

Good place to work, however skills learned dont transfer
Good opportunities for advancement inside the organization, but unfortunately health care related knowledge acquired doesn't translate to other organizations.
