I have been working at Bow Valley College full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – Colleagues, benefits (if full-time), vacation time is outstanding for instructors, the culture (within departments) is positive, overall, but communication between departments is not great.
Cons – Very corporate, lack of imagination in the English Language Learning Department, senior management at times appears to be more concerned with public image than with student experiences.
Advice to Senior Management – Let the instructors do their jobs without micromanaging
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Bow Valley College full-time
Pros – Educational discounts on products, one week off at Christmas
Cons – Poor work ethic of staff. Like the old days of the government job. Friends and family get precedence. Low productivity, lack of integrity, heavy office politics.
Advice to Senior Management – There needs to be a cleaning of the house. There is a serious lack of dynamism in here and the tired leadership needs to be pushed out if this school is serious about succeeding in the ever competitive world of delivering education.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Bow Valley College full-time for more than a year
Pros – Good people willing to work to make things better. Fun atmosphere.
Cons – Salary not terribly competitive but to be expected in this industry.
Advice to Senior Management – Keep working on documenting and improving processes. Learn from industries other than post-secondaries.
