It was an interesting place to work at the time. I did learn a lot. However, it was difficult to implement changes, partly due to some of the staff finding changes difficult to accept.

I have heard new changes implemented after management changes; perhaps it is better now.

Culture in recreation/rehab department is supportive and there is teamwork. Things are changing but hopefully for the better. Lots to learn from managers and colleagues too. Not a perfect place to work at but open to improvement and suggestions.

CEO only cares about how he looks in front of the board will throw you under the bus to save himself total management change over he would bring in his own people and then fire them for under performing you will get know support from him or the HR director

arrogant, unprofessional, will blame you for their mistakes and/or their lack of knowledge, if you good do not show otherwise you be target to persecution and potential lay off. If you not good in what you doing, might as well stay. If you anyways decided to apply and stay work - advice: be quiet say nothing but, yes sir or yes madam
Pros
excellent multi functional coffe machine in Caffe
Cons
everything else

New Vista now is under "control" of BC Housing, I would have hoped, funds were not wasted over by incompetent management, employees were treated respectfully and acknowledged for their good job done and not blamed for management's faults. Specially some mechanism implemented by BC Housing to control spending of monetary resources in productive way and not to the private advantage. I mean contracting projects, choosing and controlling contractors for the quality of work, and usefulness for the property. Perhaps some independent (from Vista) feedback from employees who see and pinpoint corruption. In general stop management from acting like Gods and Kings over the rest of us!!!
That probably is a voice crying in the wilderness anyway.

Hope too CEO wold read this review. Cheers.
Pros
work itself is O.K. if you do what you like to do.
Cons
people, people, people

Environmental manager was unprofessional and rude to residents and staff. HR did not handle work place disputes in a professional way. Most of the housing staff were unhappy and it made it a toxic work place.
Pros

i speak on behalf of the entire dietary dept. we all know the board will not contract out so it is good because we get paid great and benefits are the best. but working here is not good because there is no trust in the new management since the good managers all left 5 years ago. sad but true. unfortunately the care staff dont care any more about the residents or home. but i guess because we are funded by fraser health authority nobody knows the truth because if we were private nobody would want to live here thats for sure.
Pros
money and benefits are the best
Cons
poor management and bad care, bad food, not friendly

This is a Dog-eat-dog Society - all you have to have is a "spine" to get in, not necessary knowledge nor experience. Money, time are wasted because of poor decisions. Non profit organization - who cares?, Government will cheep in, if funds run out. And if you know better, shut up, for otherwise you find yourself quickly outside. If you intelligent enough, you'll get the rest of the story.
Pros
good salary, benefits
Cons
poor management, poor HR
