Rewarding job
Patient Care Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Surrey, BC13 November 2018
Working in the NICU is a stressful, tiring, emotionally draining at times yet very rewarding. It is rewarding when you see those tiny miracles fight for their life and as you watch them grow slowly and able to go home with their family.
Emotionally draining and the most hardest part of the job is when you look after a baby who doesn't make it.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when you see those family coming back at the nicu to say hi.

Horrible management culture
Registered Psychiatric Nurse (Current Employee) –  Surrey, BC9 November 2018
You are not recognized and valued for your work performance or how you interact with patients and coworkers, but rather by how far you are willing to go to flatter management, including engaging in bullying on behalf of them. There is a culture of cronyism and bullying.
Pros
Nice coworkers, great benefits
Cons
culture, management tactics

Fraserhealth should be call FraserHell
Pharmacist (Former Employee) –  Abbotsford, BC12 September 2018
The managers of the pharmacy depart has ZERO management skills. They are dishonestly, lacking integrity, and show no compassion to employee. As a union member, FH has NO incentive to train you, or give you opportunities for promotion. All they do is ask you do work ridiculous hours, (up to midnight), and the pay, compare the the amount of work, is not worth it. The union are useless as they all support FH instead of supporting the members. After 8 years of this organization, it is enough and i don't want to deal with them anymore. The culture is toxic. Managers shows no regards for staff, all they care is about their own promotion and they place in the company.....

Please, don't be fool by the union or the pay.... once you are in, you are stuck and it is not good place to get stuck in.....
Pros
Higher Pay
Cons
No work life balance and managers don't care about staff

Great colleagues but poor management.
Claims Management Associate (Current Employee) –  Surrey, BC1 August 2018
You will love working at FH but the management is very poor. It is very common at Fraser Health for employees to file complaints and harassment allegations against management as they are either unfair or prejudice. Great benefits and pay is good.

Not bad company, but could be much, much better
Health Unit Aide/Clinical Support (Current Employee) –  Surrey, BC23 July 2018
Support staff are horribly underpaid.
I can't imagine what it would be like if we didn't have a union, although they're not great either.
Lots of people in leadership, so again, another "top heavy" institution where it's overkill and a waste of tax payer's money.

Love my coworkers
Registered Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) –  Langley, BC2 July 2018
Love my coworkers and feel supported by them. Management often has their hands tied and can't make changes they'd like to in order to support nurses especially patient staff ratios. Once you have a job (difficult to get hired externally in my experience) there are opportunities for advancement and additional educTion. Hardly any part time positions which is what I feel strongly about. Majority of nurses are women with families and working full time with families is very difficult when you do shift work or evenings and weekends.

Toxic workplace and unsupportive executive
Manager (Current Employee) –  Surrey28 June 2018
There is potential in this workplace but honestly the dysfunction is from the top and trickles down. For example, at a the Management business meeting last June, the CEO talks about being proud of balancing the budget and doesn't mention it was balanced because government bailed him out with almost 50 million dollars to ensure it was balanced. A CEO that is that lacking in transparency is exactly what will drive an organization into the ground
Pros
flexibility
Cons
toxic leadership

High paced, stressful environment
Clerk/MOA (Current Employee) –  Surrey, BC13 June 2018
Typical day - You would get moved around to different work stations just as you were getting your groove on where you were already sitting.
Management isn't very supportive when it comes to personality conflicts. They don't reinforce policies.
Cons
short staffed, violations of company policies

Food Service Worker (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC5 June 2018
Very unhappy place to work. They yell at you if you use the wrong spoon. You are treated like a child with no respect. The place would be a lot better if the over all vibe was better. No one wants to be yelled at and treated poorly.
Pros
Fraser Health is one of the largest employers
Cons
unpleasant management.

Fraser Health
Clinical Counselor (Current Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC26 April 2018
Great benefits, job security, poor morale and constant change based on political climate which can and cannot be helpful for patients/clients.

Leadership is lacking, however competent staff with expertise provide for a great team environment.

Union is BCGEU and not very strong, it can also provide a place for staff that are incompetent to hide and be protected. On the flip-side many benefits to the union including counselling, treatment for substance use etc.

Fha
Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee) –  Surrey, BC25 April 2018
Management is threatened by young educated and eager to learn. They use intimidation coercion, and threats to keep you on the leash. Most managers do not even have a degree!
Fraser Health is who you know that will get you promoted. A select few are great!

Overall the place is great but the management sucks!
Pros
Coffee
Cons
Uneducated most managers
