BCFerries is chronically mismanaged. 'Jobs for the boys' and cronyism is rife.
Critique of decision making has to be an acceptable part of the Management philosophy rather than a quick way to get fired. Some of the ideas I saw enforced were not just ill thought out, but laugh out loud ridiculous. I got the impression their MO was to simply get away with it until retirement. Awful.
The only way this outfit will improve is if it's taken over by a Shipping Company with normal , healthy working practices and a talented Managent team. If that ever happens, then the majority of the current Management team can expect to receive their marching orders.
