Slow paced and lost at times
Management generally has no visibility into whats possible and whats not since the communication channels at times diluted. However would definitely recommend working here

Valuable experience
BC Hydro is known as one of the best employers in Canada, and since started working there and learning more about their unique processes and work culture, I was quite enthusiastic about developing my career there.

Productive, very nice people, nice office, parking is aviable and reasonable priced
Productive, organized, person have to learn the BC Hydro rules how the job needs to be done.
I learn the importance of the cyber security is taken very seriously.

The workplace culture is excellent.

Hardest part is to learn the BC Hydro rules and regulation.

I like the team work and help of cooworkers and management to solve the problem a provide advice.

Excellent staff and world class employees, culture is very silo'd and top down management
Excellent job satisfaction but significant risk aversion and process driven environment stifles creativity and the support of excellence. Work place culture supports employees who can manage their managers and almost no opportunities for advancement. Benefits are great but overall, a somewhat disappointing experience.

Great pay/benefits in exchange for a negative, stagnant, unionized office culture
Living in rural BC, securing an admin job at BC Hydro felt like winning the lottery. If you like getting paid to twirl in your chair, deal with petty grievances and record-low morale, with virtually no advancement or growth opportunities, this is the place for you!
Pros
Pay, benefits, time off
Cons
Union culture; low morale, disengaged management

Not a good place to work, not a good company to work for!
I worked here as a painter for their Hydro construction division back in the 90's and I certainly wasn't impressed Wanted all 'chiefs' and no 'indians

TSRC is a good department and is a good place to work, if you are a Coop Student. But if you are a full time employee, then the responsibilities will be more.

Racist company
Do not work here if you are a person of colour and an immigrant, there is lots of racism and you will never get a fair shake from your peers no matter what
Pros
Good overtime
Cons
Subtle racism in abundance

Field level support creates a fullfilling work environment
working with the crews and being part of job planning allows for a good level of job satisfaction; ability to grow professionally and move up within the organization

Management is a joke
Supervisors, Management and Human Resources are corrupt and will retaliate and discriminate against you if you raise Bullying/Harassment and health and safety concerns.
If you don’t care about integrity and safety and if you want to work for a company which does not follow safe working procedures and not adhere to the workers compensation act, then I encourage you to apply.

Nothing much to say as I haven't worked for any other union properties.
Management can be a but better. No special emphasis on career growth.

Salary can be better

It's a good place to work
It's a good place to work (especially if you are an employee). If you are a contractor the pay is above average but you lose out on all the great benefits that Hydro gives out to actual employees. The work life balance is good. People are not expected to pick up the phone after work and is a strictly 9-5 work place.

Management needs to be mature and well trained, in fact looking at diversity of the dept I worked at a broad mind management with international background would work better. More emphasis on team support than emphasis on toxic environment.

A great place to develop in many areas of Business
I have enjoyed many years at this company. I love that they have enabled people to work in various positions that they may not be fully qualified for. This allows employees to learn more about the overall business, how decisions we may make can affect other departments and simply to grow in our personal business abilities.
