UBC okanagan

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

Lots of fun, but too much work and low pay

Working as an RA, you have no private life. You’re never fully away from your job. It’s very stressful to not be able to separate your work life and personal life. Also, you soooo don’t get paid enough for the amount of work you’re doing. But! The people that you work with legitimately care about you. And they’re there for you. Having such a supportive community is amazing

Pros

Management is great, employees are great

Cons

Never off the clock, not paid enough

Pros

Flexibility

Shift work can have an effect

Its fine

- Slow Paced - Inter team communication is not good - very okay management They need to establish proper matrix structure so that the teams can work better, rather than have a silo structure for each team.

the environment is really good for working and studying

A typical day at work always starts from going through tons of emails. The most important thing that I have learnt is to cooperate with you team members, to learn from each other, to help each other and to share views with people around you. The experience helps improve your management skills including time management, and project management.

Worked at the Library - Not pleasant

The library is the worst place, because people complain a lot. It is a very toxic environment. The moment you set foot there you start hearing complains about the work environment. There have been cases where people have not been promoted because of seniority and the university has been sued internally and people receive millions of dollars in compensation and still keep their jobs doing very minimal. Communications lacks in this area and if you do something wrong to complain this is view as not being a team member and rumours would start to spread. Very toxic

you'd think it would be better

.. very disconnected from department to department. Campus is nice but hard to commute and not paid enough to live closer. Management can treat "admin staff" as if they are beneath them.

HR and management toxic

HR are bullies and so very toxic. I’ve never seen anything like this before. I’ve seen several long term staff get disciplined or fired for being injured on the job. As soon as your injured ( at work!!!) they will lie and cheat to get rid of you..... Do not work here. UBCO’s HR is toxic.

Good resources, horrible management

I was hired to take notes/read out loud/study with my fellow students who had learning disabilities such as brain injuries/seizure disorders and dyslexia. The management at UBCO was horrible, if they had just let me and my students work things out between us it would have been way easier. But they ended up confusing matters between the four of us. I did get access to some good resources from UBCO to help them out though, so it wasn't all bad.

Female Working Environment

Clinical Research is a stressful event with much coordination and management of drug trials. I have gained experience especially with the Canadian regulation of drugs trials, GCP-ICH, Health Canada Div.5 and TCP2:Core.

People with a lot of potential but not fully utilised

- working style is flexible - the management works in an old school manner. Difficult to approach the concerned people. - not properly cleaned and maintained offices - management should focus on encouraging people to bring new ideas and facilitate them with necessary technologies. - the environment is good if you get along with people around.

Fun workplace

Hanging out with other economic TAs was great. Office hours would be routine. Nothing difficult about this job. You need to have good time management to work here.

Management needs a lot of work

It pays well and the benefits are one of the best. But there's poor management, and it's really stressful. You get what you put into it. It's a great opportunity to start out with, but it's tricky to grow.

Pros

Multiple locations you can work in

Cons

Long hours, same pay
