Amazing business to work for
I have nothing bad to say about working at bcit. Amazing place of business. Work politics were no drama and everyone lent a hand. Always came to work glad I was there.
Instructor-Classroom and Distance Learning Online in Burnaby, Downtown
BCIT caters to students who do not want to study and have entitlement issues. I actively tell employers not to hire because students have not earned grades. It is very much a starter school for students who are unable to earn spots at UBC and SFU. BCIT is one of those university-college mills like Capilano, Kwantlen, Langara.

School of Health Sciences
People quit their manager, not their job and nowhere is this more the case than the BCIT School of Health, Manager; Diagnostics. This manager rewards, promotes and supports those with a poor work ethic and lack teaching credentials, those who complain and are the source of creating a toxic work environment. This manager casts aside, undermines and disposes of instructors who work hard and are loyal to the organization with documented positive student feedback.
I have personally witnessed colleagues crying in meetings with this manager present, verbal abuse and harassment both in-person and online. All this behaviour goes on under the watchful eye of the Dean of the School of Health and senior leadership who do absolutely nothing to address the issues. The School of Health Sciences is the most toxic work environment I have ever been a part of.
On an organizational level, BCIT is incredibly resistant to change and more often, change is obstructed. Idea sharing is discouraged. The BCIT learning environment has not changed in decades.
How this toxic culture continues in this time of change and awareness of workplace bullying and harassment boggles my mind.

BCIT is a great trades school
BCIT is a great trades school, the most enjoyable part of the job is being a mentor to keen apprentices. The hardest part this job was the ongoing lesson planning as a result of curriculum revisions
