Electrician | Winnipeg, MB | Jul. 18, 2019
Not recommended
Political kaos at the top Administration that doesn’t know what is happening in the workplace. Management that doesn’t care what is happening in the workplace. Workers trying to survive in workplace without any direction or leadership. Tax payers are not getting value for their money due management inefficiencies and lack of knowledge by the administration to effectively provide the leadership necessary to instill confidence within a dysfunctional system. The only solution is to bring back the Board of Commissioners, on a permanent basis.
ConsDisorganized confusion - No leadership
Public Relations Assistant | Winnipeg, MB | May 30, 2016
Overall, I believe they have an amazing work environment.
I'm speaking particularly to their Indigenous Relations Division. It is one of the healthiest work environments I have ever worked at. The team is so supporting for all its members and Indigenous youth who come onboard as work placements and interns.
ProsThere are many opportunities for advancement
ConsYou don't gain seniority as an intern

Inspector | Winnipeg, MB | Aug. 16, 2019
Good work in good work environment, poor management and office atmosphere
Enjoyed the on site inspections aspect, met a lot of good people and learned a lot. Management and management practices have gone steadily downhill in the past 5 years.
Occupational Health Nurse | Winnipeg, MB | Jan. 13, 2017
Life Balance
After working in Fort McMurray where your work week is nothing but work, it is nice to be employed somewhere that you can go out for lunch with friends and have a 10 minute commute so you can enjoy time with your family. The management encourages team building and friendships within the workplace. Love working here.
ConsDifficult to get permanent position
