Former Admin (Former Employee) –  BC25 September 2018
As others have noted...toxic work environment. Poorly managed, terrible HR practices. Many managers and directors are well passed their prime. High turnover of staff doesn’t seem to enlighten anyone that the problem is most management

Education Support (Former Employee) –  New Westminster, BC12 July 2018
High salaries and excellent benefits for senior management positions. Decent salaries for union positions, but benefits are not so great, and are being eroded away with every new collective agreement negotiation. The union does not support union employees. This factors into the work culture, where the union staff are not valued and often mistreated. The management approach is outdated in most areas. And especially so in Finance, Human Resources and Registration, where it's rather autocratic and often petty. This results in a high turn over, high sick rate, and unhealthy day to day working environments. Such a shame they are not able to practise what they teach.
Some talented staff. Library staff are very helpful. Registration staff are amazing considering the call centre approach to student services.
Pros
Good instructors, Good training, Meaningful work, Rewarding to see graduates contribute to communities.
Cons
Rodents are an issue in the building. A few rats in leadership.

Blackboard and Multimedia Technical Specialist (Former Employee) –  New Westminster, BC10 July 2018
Used to be a great place a few years ago. Staff used to feel proud of how the done benefited society. The pay rate is decent for most positions, when compared to other local institutes. Benefits for management positions are decent. Not so for union positions. Over the last few years management have increased their salaries so the salary gap has increased. Now it has a toxic culture, with high sick rate and turn over rate. Recent employee survey results show the how gender and race impact the employee satisfaction and experiences negatively - more so than typical Canadian workplaces. One department had a 100% sick rate due to stress and work demands resulting from poor management decisions. The managers who do have the the awareness, skills and knowledge to recognize and correct the problems, are too scared to "rock the boat" as they may be targeted too.
Pros
Some very talented instructors and staff work there, the training provided by the institute is needed, Building is nicely designed. Parking is free (for now).
Cons
Outdate management practises, Human Resources, Toxic environment, Human Resources, Bullying, Human Resources.
