    Pros

    Excellent people to work with. Great benefit package and time off. Lots of corporate activities such as Sun Run and Canstruction.

    Cons

    Hiring new employees at higher rates than long term employees. Always seems to be in constant change - people leaving or titles and responsibilities changing.

    Pros

    Without a doubt, the people at FortisBC tend to be exceptional. They are professional and for the most part, pleasant to work with. Stability is also a plus.

    Cons

    The company is undergoing changes that are not all positive. Management is changing, with many new faces from FortisBC in Kelowna. Employee morale is down, and it's just not as nice a place to be as it once was.

    Advice to Management

    Train new managers. Help them learn how to manage people. Don't assume they can do it without help.

    I have been working at FortisBC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to move around the company and gain experience in many different areas; the company supports an excellent work-life balance; the company provides great benefits including lots of time off; great colleagues.

    Cons

    The head office is deep in Surrey, which is a long commute from Vancouver; pay is nowhere near competitive with other regional utility (BC Hydro)

    Advice to Management

    Good job in being accessible to all employees should they require your time; move the head office back to Vancouver or at least adopt policy(ies) that allow employees to work remotely or from other office locations
