Steady environment supporting less than adequate front-line users
Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 14 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.
Senior Technical Project Manager (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 26 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.
Clerk IV (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 19 October 2016
Does not foster growth of employees Promote mainly from outside No career path of advancement Constant lack of staff Low morale Lack of vision and leadership No benefit for "temp" workers, who could be there for more than 1 year.
