Senior Project Engineer in Burnaby, BC
on 29 January 2020
Progress at the speed of government
All in all, Metro Vancouver is a great place to work if you are straight out of school and have no other experience or are at the end of your career and just need a quiet place to hang out until the end. Not much opportunity for advancement of any kind; not for the ambitious types, to be certain.

Project Technologist in Burnaby, BC

ok, not great/not bad
If you are a Technologist you aren't going anywhere because all they want in bachelors degrees to be "management", with a Technologist 2 year diploma you are stuck in the union and you will be never anything more than an assistant or have any responsibility. I would say by late 20's you have reached your ceiling in pay and advancementGreat co-workers (who were all Professional Engineers), a friendly bunch and I think they all work pretty hard, but are hamstrung by bureaucratic policies. For example it didn't matter how senior you were, a letter leaving the office must be reviewed and approved by your boss prior to being sent. Its also the only place in my career where anyone in the office was expected to keep telephone logs for every phone call made detailing the date, time, person and subjects discussed. I thought this was standard because I was out of school, but nope I have never seen it done at any other employerZero reward for showing any initiative. Zero perks, eg want a cup of coffee you had to pay. Want to go to the Christmas party, you had to pay.Bottom line, if you have any ambition STAY AWAY. I was straight out of school so it was a good place to start my career, but once I realized it was a dead end in my mid-20s I quit. If you like working just the hours expected and go home when the whistle blows not carrying about work, your career or anything THIS IS THE PERFECT PLACE for you.I will say on the plus side I got some fantastic experience working on some major infrastructure projects

Click behaving
yes it is very click orientated. If you like kissing butt then by all means. Regional Parks department play favorites with inexperienced kids. Be aware
