Poor Example of Service Sector
Supervisor Assistant (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC11 June 2018
HSSBC/BCCSS is/was under the PHSA umbrella.

Poor management - workers dictate work hours and job tasks.

Lots of injuries - lack of training or a reason to not work.

Union reps talk behind your back with supervisors and management - this action dictates there's no confidentiality between union representation and workers rights to fairness.

Lack of structure - too many out-dated and expired items waiting on warehouse shelves within hospital facilities. Items should only be ordered when supplies are down to the wire in supply rooms.

This service should be privatized. It would be cost-effective and save on future expenses of overtime hours, and workers will have to put in their due amount of time for services provided.

Sign-in and Sign-out system needs to be regulated with I.D. Card scan systems with fail-safe methods in-place.

The provincial government needs to look at this type of job action, and decide whether it is viable to pump more money into a losing proposition.
Pros
Pension.
Cons
Waste of tax payers money.

Steady environment supporting less than adequate front-line users
Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC14 October 2017
Systems support for ERP and Business Applications. While the work itself is interesting and motivation for one willing to put in the effort to do a root cause analysis and better what you are working with... there is the part of the job where you support users of the system. Some of these users are minimally trained and marginally clueless about what and how they should do things.

Great experience and job outlook, tough environment to really get ahead in. The culture, as with other public sector jobs, is a little mundane and not fun. Definitely do not expect a "Beer Friday" vibe here.

Solid Contract work
Senior Technical Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC26 June 2017
Great place to be able to run as your own manager. You are expected to manage projects without being hand-held. As long as you can keep projects on track, this is an excellent place.
There is little/no grooming or feedback on performance. It is the "wild west" in that you have to figure things out on your own. If you can build solid relationships with the other departments, you will succeed here.

Great place to learn really quickly. Still need better management
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC16 May 2017
Great place to learn things quickly as you are thrust into your role and have to hit the ground running.

Management quality is dependent on department. Some managers are better than others at leading.

Sometimes awkward project groups as a large portion of the organization is unionized. Motivations of union vs non-union employees are not aligned.

Organization goes through big changes every few years. Lots of reshuffling of management on a constant basis. Difficult to keep long term goals on track.
