    Pros

    BCforward is a great place to work, making friends, and experienc. I love our friendly office. It's so fun! One of my favorite parts about BCforward is our employer's emphasis on employee wellness and work life balance. But my favorite part about working for Glassdoor is I enjoy showing up to work every day. Although I have the option to work from home some days if I like (I have a long commute), I love coming to the office because my co-workers are my friends. I love you BCforward!

    Cons

    I make below market pay, but for me, a job is SO MUCH MORE THAN SALARY. I love my job which is worth more than any amount of money. Don't get me wrong, I still make good money, I just could be making even more. BCforward pays decent :)

    Advice to Management

    I can't speak for other people so I don't have much to say. I really like the management style. The freedom I'm given means everything to me and I feel it makes me better at my job.

    Pros

    I enjoyed my manager and management team. My team members were easy to work with and hard working.

    Cons

    Depending on the client location, you may be more of a project coordinator than a project manager. The health care insurance was very expensive, there's no HSA contribution, and no short/long term disability. My location was an open concept placement, so it was very nomadic. I didn't have a dedicated desk, phone, or trash can. I walked 15-20 minutes from the parking lot to my building one way. They have training, but it falls short of preparing you for your job. The PMO was not consistent in processes. Being a contract PM has a disadvantage if the client is difficult which mine was, and my company struggled to mediate the situation. The drawbacks outweighed the benefits at my assigned location for some time, so I finally concluded it was unlikely to change, so I changed and departed.

    Advice to Management

    Have more flexibility for your PMs to move to other locations or clients when the "fit" isn't the best. Also, look to grow your client base so there are more options. Your benefits need a complete overhaul or you'll keep losing employees.
