Needs a work culture overhaul.
Education Support (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 12 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 The management approach is outdated in most areas.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.
Good instructors, Good training, Meaningful work, Rewarding to see graduates contribute to communities.
Rodents are an issue in the building. A few rats in leadership.
