Great collaborative atmosphere and opportunity to learn all aspects of the utility business

Analyst (Current Employee) North Surrey, BC (Canada)

Pros*Sincere commitment to investing in its employees
*Extremely collaborative and positive working environment
*A la carte style health/insurance benefits (opt out of certain features and get credit/compensation, where desired)
*Good opportunities to learn all aspects of the utility business
*Opportunities to shift jobs functionally or regionally within the company--across electric and gas divisions

Cons*Located in Surrey, B.C. which is a stressful commute from Vancouver
*No participation in local transportation programs or support for those who must commute long distances to get to work
*Compensation is not competitive

Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be some support for those employees who must commute long distances to get to work, ie. participate in Metro Vancouver's Translink program or provide a small subsidy for employees that carpool to work over longer distances

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
