Horrifying. The manager for a science program had a theater degree, and is American, and it showed with inappropriate behaviour, continually erroneous reports monthly, and conduct that violated crown policy. She was a bully, and despite being obese, felt the need to insult others, including their appearance, to try and boost her need for attention.
On ne demande qu'une honnête journée de travail. J'ai eu beaucoup de formation en Communication et un peu en Protection La direction de BC Hydro est composée de spécialistes en communication, alors que le mandat est en électricité. Les investissements se font en équipements de communication et la mission de BC Hydro, la partie 'électrique du réseau' est très négligée. À Vancouver, il y a une bonne culture d'entreprise. Le plus difficile est le chaos dans les plans électriques. Pas de suivi de projets. À la centrale Mica, il y avait encore des dessins qui n'avaient jamais été mis à jour depuis la mise en route, 30 ans+, soit environ 12 projets qui n'avaient pas été faits ou vérifiés. Certains plans indiquaient la présence de 5 câbles alors qu'il y en 20+ dans le panneau. Le plus agréable était le voyagement dans cette magnifique province.
Manque de support technique en Protection & Controle
I Don’t recommend this job... stressful as most customers yell and scream. Hydro should address this issue. Customer is always right but or managers throw us under the bus when we’re doing our job as the customer is always right. As agents were following guidelines and still complaint on your file 👎
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 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.
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!
Pay, benefits, time off
Union culture; low morale, disengaged management

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
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
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
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.
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.
