    I worked at BCAA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent work life balance and benefit

    Cons

    Some managers are from different industries so they may not understand the pain-point of the front line operation. Some are lack of management skill, such as unconscious bias, lack of proactive skill, poor communication skill, incomplete training plan etc.

    I have been working at BCAA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Work/life balance - Career development opportunities - Benefits including up to 100% medical and dental/ pension/ free membership/ health spending account of $250 per year - Quarterly bonuses - Invests in leaders. I am currently in the Coquitlam office where the Managers are the best I have ever had in my working life. They are engaging and truly care for all of the team members - BCAA is one big family and help each other yet when needed - we have recently had a lot of help coming from other offices which is amazing!

    Cons

    - Some are union offices so we have to pay union fees - Can be very busy so be prepared!

    I have been working at BCAA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    OK salary, good benefits, work/life balance

    Cons

    - OK salaries - Culture may vary depending on which department you're in. Some departments have great microculture and team collaboration, while some are all about politics and bureaucracy. - Again, depending on which departments you're in, career opportunities may be very limited. You're basically waiting for years for someone to retire so there's finally a vacancy.

    Current Employee - Manager in Burnaby, BC
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at BCAA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free BCAA membership with all the savings that come with it, special employee insurance discounts. "Good work-life balance, small cafeteria, food ok Discount towards membership, which provides discounts to many stores and services. Free coffee and tea. Subsidized cafeteria with many salad choices.

    Cons

    The employees who have been with BCAA for years will never leave and don’t know how to adapt. Cultures vary from department to department. Cramped space, aged building with no room for expansion, parking says it all.
