Nice place, Good people

(Current Employee)
Kelowna, BC (Canada)

ProsKelowna 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

ConsEngineers 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 Senior ManagementA 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..

Get them… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
