    Overall average at best.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits for employees are very good. Employees in the company were nice and amiable. Strong customer oriented focus which for a utility company is a good value to have and something the company stressed.

    ConsRegulated business so its very cost conscious which can be a problem. Work environment was somewhat stressful and disorganized. Upper management was aloof.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Needs work....

    Tradesman (Current Employee)

    ProsFair wages and benefits
    Good safety program
    Great coworkers

    ConsLack of respect for unionized employees - use workers as pawns during negotiations
    Minimal opportunities to better one's self
    Poor management skills set creates workplace dissension

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe fair and reasonable...respect employees and listen to them......they are told they are the #1asset -. Give them the opportunity /resources to prove it!

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Started off great but recently has started to go down hill

    Nice place, Good people

    (Current Employee)
    Kelowna, BC (Canada)

    ProsKelowna and the southern part of BC is a nice place to live.
    Electric and gas utilities make for secure employment
    The company pays an good salary if you don't consider Alberta

    ConsEngineers should be able to participate in field work and get more hands on opertunities. It is difficult to find opertunities to get out of the office.
    frequent changes to management and reporting structure

    Advice to Senior ManagementA better mentoring program would be helpful, the EIT program could provide more support for goal setting and comunication about expectations and improvements. It has been difficult to get recommendations for improvements even when requested.
    Limited opertunity to be involved in field work or participate in tasks other than sitting in front of a computer screen - it would be nice to learn in the field as well..
