    I worked at Fraser Health as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible with hours, high pay, very good opportunities. Learned a lot. Mentorship options. Made a difference.

    Can be somewhat boring if there is not a lot of work to do. Was always looking for more work to do!

    Keep the mentorship opportunities. Hire interns to work on multiple teams if possible.

    I worked at Fraser Health as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People in the health industry are generally very caring, and hardworking, which makes work rewarding and enjoyable. The cultural and values are amazing. Compensation is fair.

    Cons

    The size of the organization makes implementation of ideas difficult and takes a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Entertain the idea that change can happen quickly with efforts from a large and mobile team. Managers are busy juggling multiple sites and projects, adding frontline staff and support staff would make projects move a lot faster.

    I worked at Fraser Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits package and one of the few companies that still provides a defined income pension

    Cons

    Yes culture in senior management. Results driven which is normally a good thing but recent management changes have created a culture of bullies, management cliques protecting each other's self interests, and self promoters. Results are rewarded over integrity, sustainability of solutions and treatment of staff. Depressing culture to work in if working with integrity is important to you.

    Advice to Management

    Fraser Health spends invests a lot of time investing in leadership training but their HR department and senior managers do not live the same values. Senior leadership is rewarded for getting things done but now how they achieved the results nor the sustainability of their solutions.
