    Good benefits, large opportunity for impact, you work to make healthcare in BC better.

    HR has very old-fashioned practices, issues with pay equity (people in same role being paid differently), rigid job descriptions, change management is difficult - the overall culture can be stifling to new ways of thinking and reduces innovation.

    I have been working at Fraser Health part-time

    Pros

    Rewarding interactions with patients/clients/residents Coworkers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Not enough staff and too much workload, management refuses to acknowledge this because then they'd have to do something about it. As a result, there's never enough time to do all the proper care necessary for patients.
