Pros

Wages and benefits. The health benefit package will more than cover the medication you will eventually be on.

Cons

Mid level management is virtually useless and most of them are trying not to rock the boat on the short sailing to retirement.

Advice to Management

You have allowed levels of bureaucracy to establish a footing that isn't even seen in government. Eventually the BCUC will get wind of this gig and pop the bubble.

    Pros

    Kelowna 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

    Cons

    Engineers 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 Management

    A 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..
