    I worked at BC Wildlife Federation

    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

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at BC Wildlife Federation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great for students, volunteers and entry level jobs.

    Cons

    Bad leadership, employees are not important or treated fairly. Low pay, little or no incentive to stay long term.

    Advice to Management

    When I was last employed there were 8 managers or (coordinators) they were called and 2 support staff. So in other words you have coordinators without anyone to coordinate. My department was bringing in over a million per year I was not given a yearly review for two years, nor a pay raise after 7 years of employment. I was doing the job of 3 people with little help. (2.5 day a week shared assistant) A fulltime assistant...

    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.
