No communication....no leadership
Management Lead (Former Employee) –  Langley26 October 2018
Do not have an opinion as it will cost you your job.
Caring in any manner is thought of as a negative, it is challenging to see the waste of taxpayers money when the management will not take the proper steps in cleaning out the dead weight employees.
Management do not want the hassle or work that is involved to rectify costly issues such as employee absenteeism, product waste, inventory shortages.

All in all it could be a decent place to work but with upper and middle management acting the way they do it makes for a challenging negative work environment.
Pros
I wish there were some, the only saving grace is that some of the people are quality people
Cons
Management, Provincial Director, lack of communication, lack of trust from management towards unionized employees

Phsa is a machine.
Lab Assistant (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC9 January 2019
Phsa doesn’t care about the patients they only care about money and turn around time. They will have you working 2+ people short then come around asking why stuff isn’t done. Staff is miserable and exhausted. It’s only getting worse
Pros
Benefits are decent
Cons
Management, no growth, short staffed, no help

Employee (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC27 December 2018
Middle management is great. Upper management 9s terrible and very removed from daily work. Co-workers are burnt out and negative at best. No perks. You are considered a robot and equal to all others so no incentives.
Pros
None I can think of...
Cons
No incentive

Great benefits and work life balance; would recommend it to everyone. Great people. Not micro-managed by your superior, which is a plus. Very busy workplace.

Not a very fun job. Not organized, not promising.
Project Engagement Planner (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC26 June 2018
This job was kind of a drag. People are hard to deal with and the project was never really organized. Chalk it up to the management but I'm surprised the management wasn't fired by PHSA.

Analyst (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC8 May 2018
The work in interesting and challenging. People are generally good. Some are disengaged, but they are in the minority. Management is professional but can be detached.
Pros
Balance
Cons
Salary could be better

Get in, learn, then move on (fast)
Advisor (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC14 October 2017
There is a large shortage of qualified labor in this company. There are a lot of talkers which fail to take action and the company itself is extremely middle management heavy. If you are a performer, you will get access to all sorts of interesting work in this company. Unfortunately, they will rely on you absolutely and do not compensate as per performance, rather its how knows and likes you instead. I developed a lot with this company but found it frustrating when performance increases are capped at 2-3% yearly and I was given the same increases as other peers.

Competent Staff but underperforming Culture
Experienced (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC11 May 2017
Poorly managed workplace with assignments and projects frequently running slowly, direction lacking quality, and budgets being extended. Very political environment with 'fit' being emphasized over competency. Promotions occurring when 'fit' exists, but not necessarily the skill sets to get the job done. Poor planning of initiatives and projects, with a lot of toxicity resulting; nearly impossible to get efforts back on track, with the culture ignoring risk assessments. HR is almost useless.
Pros
Decent pay. Convenient locations.
Cons
Inconsistent pay and job classification structures.

Poor management and job advancement
Finance staff (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC20 April 2017
I have been with the company for long time and actually very disappointing as the years go by with new management comes along which leads me to look for another job somewhere else after the long years of service. The company has serious politic issues and favorism takes a big role in their decision making of who they want to promote. Hard working and just sit down to do the work type will not be appreciated here. They are into people with the skills to suck up with the bosses. Staffs who work hard, start from the bottom, and have been there for years will never get promoted. Lower salary range compare to other gov't positions and pay raises are way below the inflation. Don't waste your time here!!
Pros
Good pension, work and life balance
Cons
Poor management, lower pay rates, poor job advancement

Stability is number one.
Storesman (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC12 May 2015
Stability at PHSA is top notch...if you don't want to advance in pay. Warehouse work is monotonous and the pay raise is almost non existent. Inflation rate is higher than the pay raise, lol. Union is a joke, doesn't protect anyone from bullies (senior employees that down talk to you like you're trash). Supervisors can not implement or use disciplinary actions against people like that, basically are glorified baby sitters. Sick-time is abused to the moon, everyone calls in sick, f***ing joke.
Pros
Stability
Cons
no over-time pay permitted to regular staff only supervisors. No substantial pay raises, no real advancement to a better position.

Unhappy Management dominated work environment
EX AR Finance Clerk (Former Employee) –  AR Finance, Willingdon, Burnaby BC13 October 2014
Very difficult and arrogant Management Team exists at the AR Finance office. Management is intolerant of new ideas, new direction and new methods in improving work flow and productivity.. Staff turnover is over 50% and old staff let go are not replaced. If you are accepted for employment, then you are a chip off the old block (Head) and are a replica of the Management Group, that is desperate to retain power. Steer care of any AR Job advertisements until the department goes through a major internal overhaul.
Pros
Few
Cons
Long hours and unhealthy workloads

If you want to stagnate in a job...PHSA is for you
Project Manager 1 (Former Employee) –  Vancouver18 April 2014
You will work hard and impress management, but this will get you no where fast. Management does not respect staff and treats employees like children.
If you want advancement and have the audacity to ask for it, you will be told it is coming and there is a future for you in the company, until one day you will be let go - without a reason!
You will be offered a meagre redundancy that they will not honour and your only chance of being treated like a human being is to get a lawyer involved.
Pros
Some work life balance
Cons
Low pay, no advancement, horrible bosses

Little respect given
Front line staff (Former Employee) –  Vancouver area26 January 2015
Everyone is replaceable...And they have no problem telling you that if you challenge status quo. At one time was a great place to work. Now, there is no consideration for work/life balance, you are expected to work like a robot. Hidden agendas and lead to hardworking staff being treated poorly.
Pros
Opportunity to work in specialized areas
Cons
Opinions of front line staff dont matter, unsafe workloads

Jr. Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC19 March 2015
PHSA Is a great for job security. The culture is great and very welcoming. The salary is fair and benefits are great. I find all management to be caring, and show concern for the wellbeing of their employees. Workload is not overwhelming which can be a pro or con for some people.

Clerk III, Screening Mammography Program of BC (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC17 March 2015
Great place to work! Learned a lot about how the Health Care Industry works and how it services people. The Management of all the Health Care Services in BC, were taken into consideration to make the Department of the government run efficiently.
