    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.
