    Pros

    - Great coworkers
    - The managers/executive director tend to be attentive to your needs
    - If you care about hunting and/or conservation, this is good place to work for

    Cons

    - They claim to be for conservation, but this is a hunter's club first and foremost
    - Lots of turnovers
    - Salary is fairly low even for a non-profit
    - You will need a car to work here as it is borderline Langley
    - There seems to be some disconnect between the staff and board of directors


  2. "Unless they have new management and BoD, you do not want to work here."

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at BC Wildlife Federation full-time

    Pros

    Organization serves a good purpose
    Great people involved in the organization
    Strong membership base
    Strong and talented department leaders

    Cons

    Disrespectful and unreasonable management with the incessant need to micromanage your every move and bully you until you feel 2 inches tall.
    Board of Directors needs an overhaul
    Terrible pay
    Overtime required at 1:1 for outreach events - some days are 18+ hours.
    Don't count on ever seeing your bonus
    Borderline unethical business negotiations and contracts
    5-hour management meetings every 2 weeks

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the toxic people in your organization - then maybe you won't be on the verge of driving the organization into the ground.

  3. "Not worth it"

    Pros

    Flexible work environment... great for families.

    Cons

    Horrible management structure... Board is too operational and no one is able to make decisions without management approval.
