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

    Pros

    Decent promotion of work life balance even though it's kind of a farce with unpaid overtime. Job is super easy in reality even with all the management issues making simple things hard.

    Cons

    If you speak up about anything, even safety issues where fortis does not follow Canadian standards, expect to be reprimanded by management. During covid19 management actively looked the other way when people come into work sick.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at FortisBC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very friendly people. Great support for work tasks. Engineering related work experience. Diverse and merit based assignments, you get as much as you are willing to take on and able to do.

    Cons

    Mentorship is lacking, it can be noticeable and frustrating. There is not much available for gaining industry insight or making those meaningful professional connections. There is also little in the way of training and advancement, you have to push for it yourself and will often be told no. The salary/hourly range is mid-tire and does not provide any scaling with location.
