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.

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

Enjoyable Position
Being a temporary social housing clerk I learned more than just what my positioned entailed and that is what lead to me to follow a career in Social Services.
Union Employee in Burnaby, BC
on 2 March 2020
Where Dreams and Careers Come to Die
If you want a secure job as a union employee, this is it. Kiss your career dreams and goals good bye though. Advancement is rare (union or exempt) - there's no career path anywhere in this outfit. Most management positions are filled from outside by individuals who have no idea of the culture, operational or technical aspects of the job. And most of those managers can't manage their way to the bathroom never mind manage a group of people. HR does a grand job protecting them. Productivity suffers under this leadership. Morale is low to none existent in most divisions due to leadership, lack of career advancement and and gross remuneration inequities. Let me explain, Teamster supervisors, responsible for 5 to 10 staff make $40 K to $50 K less than an exempt supervisor with only one report. Work/life balance - not here. You work an 8.5 hour day, get paid for 7.25 (if your union), if you are management feel free to work 12 hours a day while a colleague has their feet on their desk. You can work yourself into a nervous breakdown while your coworker does nothing and you both walk away with the same salary - again management and union alike. Benefits are also inequitable - management has 100% paid benefits and the unions are at 80%, wages - most exempt staff make $20 plus dollars an hour more than union staff. As an exempt employee you have no security and are subject to immediate dismissal should it be found beneficial to the employer. Additional vacation time is awarded to exempt within the first 10 years and union employees have to work 25 years before they reach the same. This organization is filled with incredible talent but those employees skills are all lost in by the above noted inequities. Metro Vancouver is also home to the most worthless slackers, bullies and horrible bosses, more so than any other any other workforce I have personally experienced also the only public sector employer I have experienced. In hind site, I wish I had left much sooner than I did to experience the private sector which was so much more fulfilling.
