Excellent company to work for!!! Benefits are great; medical, dental, and MSP. Flex day every 3 weeks which is a bonus. Vacation days are dependent if you're regular full time and if you are it depends on your amount of team members in your department. Management is pretty good and they collaborate with their team members on a regular basis. Lots of working and communicating with other departments to make things work for everyone. Co-workers and colleges' from different departments are amazing. All BCH employees are very friendly and engaging. Work/life balance depends which department you work in. One example is operations department (maintenance) which is a very chaotic and it does not give a good work/life balance when you are on call for a week responding to after hours emergencies Client base is very diverse with different challenges, no day is the same with very rewarding results. Hiring process is a bit challenging for external candidates as the criminal record check takes a month or longer and the candidate moves on to a different employer rather than waiting.
Management has no idea what they're doing half of the time, they're literally scrambling to get coverage and trying to pass off someone's unfinished work onto someone else who's more capable. Only to create burnout amongst all employees, and all around the office, the morale is quite low. No one is listened to, no one takes your concerns about anything seriously. It takes every ounce of my being to not walk out that door every day and just not come back.
A great place to work. Very divers and accepting. Management is kind and they encouraging work and life balance. Enjoyed working here. and will miss team.
People, Plants & Homes was a hidden gem of a co-op position while I was studying at SFU. The staff were passionate and well organized, and management for the program was supportive and involved. An excellent experience.
I do not share the same enthusiasm working for this organization that others have. There is no realistic vision to solve the housing crisis. The bureaucracy and image obsession is a nightmare. Management and the top people in the organization seek to constantly look good and cover any problems by masking it with inclusive language, all the while being the same old government institution it is. Co-workers are a lottery. The Union is useless and non existent. Its a perfect job for those that like to simply obey a master or those who like stepping on others to get ahead. HR just pretends everyone is happy.
