Pros

Quasi monopoly so the job is quite secured. The paycheck is quite on par with other utilities. Working hours are standard except during fiing seasons.

Cons

If you are looking for a leap in your career, it might not be the case as in other utilities. There are typical corporate bureaucracies.

Advice to Management

More flexibility in working hours and more work/life balance are recommended. The management is good in general, although recent merging brought about some turbulence.

    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.
