    Current Employee - Senior Appraiser in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I have been working at BC Assessment full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. Work life balance. 2. Advancement 3. No liability. 4. Decent pay 5. Outstanding benefits. Training is outstanding, even if poorly timed, and little to no follow up.

    Cons

    Slow moving leadership. Weak mentor ship. Stop the chaos, get organized, and stop with the constantly shifting goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be the leaders, hold people accountable, including your own managers.

    I worked at BC Assessment full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stable working environment.
    Fair remuneration package.
    Co-workers are willing to help each other.

    Cons

    Management is uninvolved and not supportive, they have never attended any of project meetings and tried to understand the project issues. Without proper know-how and understanding, they can never support and provide guidance to the project team but left issues open and rotten.
    One of the managers was emotional enough to have a classic statement like "I am a Manager and I am not doing these detailed work, I am focusing on the big picture." For God's sake, focusing on the big picture means this Manager has never communicated with the team and brought any useful ideas to support the team!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some management staff are not "real managers", working long enough in this company never made them to be the strong or good ones. Some of them never take initiatives to talk to their team or understand the team's needs.

    I worked at BC Assessment as a contractor

    Pros

    Friendly environment, staff (working level) are easy to get along with
    Salary and benefits are quite good

    Cons

    Some Directors and managers are dictative, have their own set of opinions, never listen to others
    Poor time management and communications to staff
    Micro-managing on staff's work, pretend to know everything
    Force staff to follow the rules they set and claim that it is the best approach

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with staff, fair approach for promotion
    Some senior management team members are not good leaders, they interprete "coaching" as "if I ask you to do something, you have to proceed"
