Low Pay - No Room for Advancement - Poor Leadership
Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC12 August 2013
Worked as an IT Support Specialist for the VSB for quite some time so be prepared to stay at the same wage for a years. There are no steps, just bands and you stay in that band pay scale until a new contract if ratified. Since the current government mandates a 0% wage increase there will be no increases anytime soon.

It is almost impossible to to climb to a higher banding as the process is to do so is highly subjective and a waste of time.

Management within IT were quite reasonable however politics reign supreme.

With that said there are great people to work with and the benefits are decent.

Work / Life Balance is good.
Pros
work/life balance - great people to work with - rewarding helping students
Cons
low wages - no advancement opportunities - high risk of union strikes
