Great job to get experience and learn
Biologist (Current Employee) –  Westbank BC5 September 2018
This is actually the Tribal Council - Okanagan Nation Alliance, which does fisheries and wildlife work in a vast area. They have a large team of qualified biologists that do diverse work throughout the Okanagan and Kootenays.
There is lot of independence and self starters will thrive.

Salary tends to be a little below normal but there aren't many fisheries jobs where you get to live in a city in the Okanagan. Staff are friendly and inclusive.

Lots of opportunity to participate in cultural events and ceremonies.
Pros
Diverse challenges and projects
Cons
Not really any

never do it again
Social Worker Supervisor/Designate Health Director (Former Employee) –  Vernon, BC18 September 2017
as a band member I expected more from leadership. Okanagan Indian Band is a closed community and I had expected more support for band members.
Management did not understand the culture of First Nations and were not willing to look at traditional conflict resolution practice
Pros
Community connection
Cons
No cultural safety practice

Tough nut to crack
Director of Public Works and Housing (Former Employee) –  Vernon, BC27 May 2016
There are great people, some amazing employees to work with. Everyone is overworked and underpaid, however. The political climate is intense, and the direction is scattered and usually unrealistic.
Don't expect a long term position, but if you can handle the pressure and are ok with a 2 year term then the community members make it worth it.
Pros
Politics
Cons
Lack of recognition
