Working as a TA for UBC Okanagan has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have had. The workplace culture is amazing, with a collaborative environment in which both Faculty and Staff are willing and ready to help you grow as a professional and meet and exceed your own goals. It was the best kind of job: one in which I could simultaneously share my own knowledge and learn from others, especially the students.

UBC is a major company and organization with decent administration practices and a clear vision. In my experience the university's administration and faculty work ok although there's sometimes issues with regards to budged allocation or strategic priorities.

power engineer (Current Employee) - Kelowna, BC
UBC BCGEU position is a dead end job with a great benefit package. The wages are very low however you know that coming in and may be able to deal with that aspect. The charge engineer and management team in the facilities department create a toxic work environment. There is an old boys club mentality and change is desperately needed, the existing work environment its not a healthy or positive workplace.
Pros
Benifit package
Cons
As mentioned
