Great company, lagging on pay and culture

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A reasonable place to work with great security, but sub-market pay for professionals. Management cares about individuals and work-life balance is respected. However, non-trades positions are put into 5 salary bands and pretty much everyone is in the 3rd band. As a result, professional positions such as engineers, business professionals and accountants are paid about 20-30% lower than the BC median. For instance, a 10 year professional engineer would make about $80k, where their peers would make around $100,000 for a similar position. There is no possibility for salary negotiation. As a result, I've observed many departures in the past 2-3 years and difficulties hiring top talent. Similarly, job culture is stuck in the 90s - it's fine, but lags behind peers such as BC Hydro, Telus, but perhaps still ahead of government.

Changing Environment

Over time, the company has increasingly been operating pretty lean. All aspects (work/life balance, salary increases, job security, etc) have been suffering.

Pros

5 weeks vacation

Cons

So much work that you have a very difficult time using that vacation
