Not the best place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Their customer service management team was a clique that ran the place to the ground. The director who managed customer service was not a good leader and lots of favoritism was shown to men of the same race and back ground.

Pros

Salary

Cons

Bad management, immature leadership

Supportive and inclusive culture that promotes and provides professional development opportunities

Nothing but great things to say about this organization. They offer thorough training and provide all the tools you need to succeed. This organization is a great example of how a company should operate.

Disgraceful representation of a public regulator

I would have never believed it until I worked at TSBC that the leadership takes pride at collecting fees and finding ways to not inspect anything. The leadership are passionate about woke culture and whatever political agenda is on the mainstream media. There is no passion to help clients and act like a representative for Public Safety. All of the directors and execs have no technical background, the director of technical actually has a teachers diploma if that tells you anything. The rest are lawyers and art's majors. The moment you challenge them, the severance payouts begin. I was the 3 Technical leader hired and fired in 2 years. Same exec, same director. It's a shame as there is lots of great opportunity to improve but not with a top heavy management that actually has no technical knowledge nor leadership skills to empower the Operation minions that do.

Pros

BC Public Pension Plan

Cons

Exec's and Directors have no fundamental idea of what Technical Safety is.

Decent pay, good work life balance, , confusing priorities, toxic work culture

The work life balance and pay is reasonable at this company, so if that is your employment priority they are a good choice. However, the leadership does not have a clear plan on organizational priorities, so trying to understand the practical relevance of what you do will be confusing. This contributes to a general frustration among the employees, which has established a very inwardly focused toxic environment. Sadly, there are many great people but poor leadership.

Pros

Good salary, good work life balance

Cons

Toxic people culture, confusing priorities, lack of progress with corporate goals

Very stressful

Too stressful and horrible culture I don’t recommend working here. Everyone is competitive and not helpful . No one likes to work in a team and many people are downright rude. A lot of bullying

Its okay if you are the secondary earner

Technical Safety BC is okay. You have lot of opportunity to learn something excited, but also need to support legacy systems as well. Good work life balance, managers are good at least when I worked there, good benefits but actual salary is appalling. That is the main reason I left.

Great Organization

Great salary, benefits and management. If you are a performer, you’ll easily excel. Supportive management, great work culture with fun activities throughout the year and a work life balance that allows you to be connected with your family. I’ve seen great, quality individuals excel at Technical Safety BC. If you are just looking for a job to sit and do nothing and get paid- this isn’t for you. Must be why there are so many bitter reviews

Client care department failing rapidly

Numerous restructuring changes in the past 2 years - too many to list. Client care department has seen a change of leadership, and the work environment/employee satisfaction has since been going downhill. Many client care employees leaving the company, even after years of loyal service. Regional office client care employees are micromanaged and are required to track every moment of their work day using more than one reporting/tracking platform. Their moment by moment reported tasks, including trips to the washroom, are then displayed on a large screen in head office so that remote management can keep an eye on their work efficiency. In addition, though not thoroughly expressed in the job description, the regional office CSR is now a call centre position.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Too many changes to keep up

Management heavy organization

Management heavy or top heavy. Workers are just numbers and can be replaced at any excuse from management. Years of work can go down the drain on management whim.

Cons

Very bad management
Was this review helpful?

poor work culture and management works and promotes within cliques

constant changes with good people losing jobs because they are not in the cliques. In 2 years they have had so many re-organizations and let so many people go. The culture is toxic and employees are not happy. A review of management should be done on work practices and fairness.

Not worth it!

The company's quality scores dropped when they let the "good" casuals go. The problem is the union is they keep their "friends" but as they can see you can't train old dogs new tricks! Couple department leads have bad tempers especially when you make mistakes, mistakes due to problems with their software and slow system. Issues they know but won't fix but will put the blame on you! Bad all around. Not worth it for the high stress-level, minimum part-time hours, and loads of ework they send to you daily. Get no benefits as casual so beware! Business leader is new and acts like she knows nothing...

Tsbc

Not a very supportive company, and no protection for contract workers, they don't give you any answers and will block advancement. Only tell you the minimum of information.

Friendly environment

Unionized friendly environment. But for casuals continuation or future advancement is not there. Also recruitment process for internal or external posting is not fair.

Previously a Government Authority now privatized and wanting to get everything sorted

Re-modeled the organization for good, They pay very good for the positions they hire, give you excellent benefits. There is lots of miscommunication and lack of commication between departments. The staff and management is the best ive seen so far.

Pros

Less stressful job, cares for its employees

Cons

Less organized but getting better now.
Was this review helpful?

Good job security but job is unfulfilling.

Inspection and compliance is being left up to the individual employer. Inspections are risk based but the risk factors are not based on individual plant idiosyncrecies. Too much time is spent on data entry by highly qualified inspectors when someone with better typing skills would be more efficient.

Pros

Allowed to work without direct supervision as long as work meets acceptable standards.

Cons

Company lacks focus and direction.
