Business Support Analyst II (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC17 May 2017
This was the first organization I professionally worked for right out of college. I learned a lot and I also learned to be comfortable and not seek growth. This maybe the downside of being employed by a large organization is you become stale and don't seek growth

IT Purchasing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC24 July 2015
WorkSafeBC is a great place for unionized staff. The pay is average by industry standards but the big problem is that senior management gets paid too much money which prompts them to squeeze the workers below them in justification of their high pay.
Pros
Unionized, fitness facilities on site, lots of parking
Cons
Excessively aggressive management, short-staffing, decreasing job security, union vs contractor divide

Typical day is writing reports and managing the Identity Management Project. I learned to respect other peoples workload. They have excellent managers and my coworkers are terrific. The hardest part of the job is that my resources have competing initiatives. The most enjoyable part of the job is delivering success.
