The relationship with colleagues was great, the workplace culture was amazing, I can find myself easily comfortable here, however, the salary could be higher to live better in the province.

Very backwards. Key organizational goals seems to be overlooked, not much oversight into the day to day operation of different departments. Could be providing a much better service to the public with better leadership initiatives.

Interviewed in a position for government. Definitely, the government people don't want ambitious, hard-working people working for their department. It is great work if you get in, but the system of three interviewers rating you for a position is actually designed to remove ambition from the mix. If you get in, keep your mouth shut, move through the system, you get a pension. What people of the province of Nova Scotia get as a result is a group of unambitious people, who don't fix issues within the province as they are in there for the pension. So you decide if that is cool or not....as that is your tax payer money.

Often a challenge to change roles because of union limitations and "silo" thinking with in government departments. Positions often have a candidate in mind.

Good work life balance and benefit
Points négatifs
Very hard to move between departments because of silo thinking

Working here, there was always a new challenge everyday. Troubleshooting computer systems and interacting with the clients was my daily bread and butter, with the occasional networking install.

Management was great and let you tackle the problems in your own way within the structure of the organization. There is even some flexibility on the start and end times of the day.


The hardest part of this job is coming up with the solution to very rare problems that are sometimes encountered. It also happens to be part of the most rewarding part of the job. Fixing a problem and seeing how happy the client is when everything is working as it should.
Points positifs
each day is different, flexible environment
Points négatifs
limited time to come up with a solution, can be physically demanding

Learning about the legislative process is something that everyone should want to have the opportunity to be apart of. It's inspiring and gives you access to some of the most important leaders and decision makers in the province.

The government is a great place to work for stability and benefits. Salaries are lower compared to the private sector for jobs that require advanced skills but most people you'll work with are honest and hard working. Due to bureaucracy, it often takes a long time to get things approved.

I have previously worked for Government of Nova Scotia and enjoyed the experience. It taught me about services that are available and how to contact them or have the constituent contact them directly. The hardest part of the job was being alone in the office most of the time as I prefer a team atmosphere. Most enjoyable part of the job was being able to make a difference in someone's life.
Points positifs
networking
Points négatifs
getting bus home at late hours

I found the workload to be extensive at times, due to shortage of staff. I have acquired many administrative skills and knowledge of the protocol of a government office and the policy and procedures.

Most of the management that I was required to work with seemed reasonable and fair, as well as the co-workers who were very accommodating when need be.


I take on all of my positions with an understanding that the job must meet deadlines and constant change. This I welcome, since I strive more in situations like this.


I enjoy working with great people and helping out the Public.
Points positifs
Working with good people who were down to earth
Points négatifs
Heavy work loads at times, but not really a problem.

I have been casual for over a year. All assignments have been good. Diversity is not just a catch phrase and diversity makes it a very respectable workplace.

There is a lot of work to do and sometimes it cannot be completed in the time alloted.
Points positifs
diversity, respectable workplace
Points négatifs
no benefits if casual
