Good workplace, good benefits, good salary

The GNWT is a good place to work. Yellowknife is a nice city, although the remoteness is not for everyone. I recommended the GNWT as a place to work. The benefits are generous.

It used to be that one of the benefits of being a government lawyer, despite lower pay, was no docketing. Well, not sure about all GNWT lawyers, but my group now has to docket every minute of the day. It's torture and I don't recommend working here. Big Brother is monitoring your every move.

Points positifs

good vacation

Points négatifs

docketing every minute of the day

I was very pleased while working for GNWT

Great place to work, good salary and benefits, great team and the immediate supervisor I worked with. The only disadvantage is the remote location far from major Canadian cities and cold winters in Yellowknife as well as shortage of medical staff. But overall it was a great experience there and if not for my health issues I would continue to work there.

Points positifs

Great place to work, good salary and benefits

Interview process is largely based on who you know not what you know.

With the current department I’m with it’s hard to get information and training. I’ve been there almost two years, whenever I ask for information I get the run around and no one wants to share what they know. Promotions are given to friends and family of Senior management. It’s a very stressful and frustrating situation.

Points positifs

Salary and benefits

Points négatifs

Training opportunities, getting information required for job, work environment

Stressful and does not treat everyone equal

Hard to learn from other employees who want to keep the knowledge for their benefit after retirement. Typical day is in the office at a desk. Not very much of the job was enjoyable.

GNWT- education

High employee turnover, day to day activities fairly the same. Management can be very unsupportive and unapproachable. Work environment depends on management and coworkers. Learning from others can be challenging as some employees want to keep their knowledge to themselves them ad

A good employer in my experience.

Working for the GNWT was a positive experience. The work is challenging, but mentally stimulating. There's lots of opportunity for training and advancement. Cons: Cost of living is very high in Northwest Territories and social problems in the NWT can be disheartening.

Managers on power trips.

Management are aloof and unable to cooperate with employees to do anything outside of the mandate, As a result an inflexible system of services that only maintain a status quo and lead to a continuation of the same issues and problems. The North will be the same in 20 years as it is now as the band-aid procedures and the cover your butt mentality continues to support those in power. Any new ideas are quickly seen as threatening despite the science behind them For example they still advocate for 12 step addiction treatment.

Points positifs

Pay is good.

Points négatifs

Feels like a police state, they monitor you facebook, control your every action outside and in work.

Not what it’s cut out to be

Micromanaged, have to request vacation a year in advance, have to call all senior managers until you get an answer if you are sick or cant make it in to work. People who actually work, also do the work for those who are there to just collect a paycheque

Points positifs

Salary and benefits

Points négatifs

Everything else

Good place to work if you don't have qualifications

In IT your managers and directors will be bar attenders, music Diploma holders. Most of them have no background in IT. If you wanted to start your career this is a good place. If you are Healthcare professional or an experienced IT professional, stay where you are and never think about moving up here. Working with unqualified bosses is hard.

Points positifs

Flex time. Holidays

Points négatifs

Absolutely unqualified managers in IT. Favoritism, rasicm.

PeopleSoft Upgrade Initiative

Although the weekly commute was somewhat taxing, working in the great white north was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that more than made up for the commute. The project had many moving parts from a change in infrastructure, firewalls, implementing Interaction Hub, Fluid, Elastic Search and as well as upgrading HCM and FSCM.
