High energy workplace with many conflicting demands
Sr. Policy Analyst and Advisor (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC29 January 2019
The team spirit was very good. The workload was extremely heavy and there needs to be improvements in administration of how work happens. They could also use more staff to assist with the work demands.
The passion about the nature of the work was extraordinary. People were inspired by the positive changes they were able to assist clients in attaining.
Pros
Good time spirit and sense of accomplishment by meeting client needs.
Cons
Extremely heavy workload that could create a sense of never feeling on top of things.
