    One of the best in Health Care

    Current Employee - Applications Technical Analyst in Prince George, BC (Canada)

    I have been working at Northern Health Authority full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great working environment. Good people.

    Cons

    Government, so you get everything is bad with government. Not a deal-breaker though. Pros far outweigh cons.

    Former Employee - Allied Health Professional in Prince George, BC (Canada)
    Former Employee - Allied Health Professional in Prince George, BC (Canada)

    I worked at Northern Health Authority full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Allied Health professionals are given respect and autonomy. Young, dynamic workforce. Tons of room for advancement. Job security and great benefits. Student loan forgiveness programs for many young professionals.

    Cons

    "The system"... it's a bureaucracy, and albeit one of the better ones, it still has its bureaucracy-related challenges. Some disconnect across the whole health authority due to vast differences between covered regions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage your workforce more - there are some brilliant minds here!

    Current Employee - Applications Technical Analyst in Prince George, BC (Canada)

    I have been working at Northern Health Authority full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers, clients and managerial personel are generally all great people and a pleasure to work with. Compensation and benefits are very competitive. Good working atmosphere at my work site. A wide range of available specializations makes it possible to move within the organization to really fit your niche.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy is frustrating at times; this often seems to stem from poorly designed provincial initiatives, or lack of communication. Cubical environment can be quite distracting.
