Highly structured and not particularly inspired organization

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Pros- good work life balance
- some good managers at the non-executive level
- some really good co-workers
- good location for most commuters
- pay is ok, depending on department

Cons- very few career prospects
- low turnover
- increasingly political because of CEO and Jack Welch style.(how did that work for GE in the end?)
- very very low morale
- CEO is a great manager but not a leader. This is a big change from the previous CEO who was a great leader but not an effective manager.

Advice to Senior Management- most of us are just waiting for the CEO to complete his contract and move on to $$$ greener pastures.
- next time the board should consider people skills when hiring a CEO. He basically hates people and it has a chilling affect on the whole company.
- that being said, you also can't argue with financial results.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A place where dreams go to die

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Burnaby, BC (Canada)

    I have been working at BCAA


    Pros: -Very casual work-life balance - no need to work overtime -Pay and benefits are fair -One of the largest employers in BC,… Cons: -Both management and executive leadership do not know the difference between managing versus leading - prepare to be micro-managed or left to your own devices… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to what higher performance employees are saying. If the lower performing employees are happy, does it really matter? Recognize that the bulk of the workforce… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
