Limited Growth Oppurtunities
An ideal workplace with fun bosses who understand you, and a friendly atmosphere. Great for picking up real-world skills and experience in a professional setting. Team culture is really great and organically driven, management often empathizes with employee's experiences on every level. Unfortunately, no real opportunity for growth and non innovative company culture.

Bureaucratic, slow and wasteful
No flexibility to make use of employees skills, ability and enthusiasm. Zero effort made at retention. Managers are caring and dedicated, but overworked and not willing to delegate communication to those more suited in department. VIU is giant ship that cannot turn around or see who is on board. Disconnect between written policies and on the job reality.

Next please
Negative experience - moved to a new job and then laid off 2 months later even though I passed my probation period. They have since reposted the same job a few times. Bad management fires people and then rehires constantly for the same positions. After I got my job I found out that 9 people had the job in the previous 2 years.

Excellent employer
VIU is a good place to work. Prior to moving to Vancouver, I was employed as the Secretary to the Dean of Student Services and ultimately as Secretary to Dean of Humanities. It is a fantastic environment and continues to improve.
