Avis d'employé sur Alberta Health Services
Well compensated, well-resourced
AHS is well-funded and well-organized. Having worked as a nurse in Ontario as well, I’d say AHS compares very well in terms of compensation, organization of staff, training, and employee supports. Although it will obviously vary from place to place, I found the culture of health care delivery to be very positive with excellent collaboration between staff, clear policies, and good access to physical resources and services resulting in excellent patient care.

In general, a well organized workplace with numerous opportunities in a variety of nursing fields, lots of lateral mobility to try different areas of nursing and plenty of flexibility for casual, part time, temporary, or full time work. A generally collaborative and team-based environment.
Poor management, hypocrisy and bullying. No chances of advancement even if you more qualified, unless you’re “in good standing” with the manager who is not qualified herself. LPNs are preferred because of lower pay rate, although not competent. If you know the manager, you’ll have perks; if you’ll seek clarification and stand up for yourself, the manager will find a way to make you leave.
Extremely clique based. No room for growth unless the Manager or Directors love you. Extremely unfair and different rules for different individuals. No consistency. Constantly breaking Collective Agreements. My mental health has hugely suffered since working with AHS. They treat admin staff horribly.
