Current Employee - Indigenous Relations - Project Manager

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

Pros

Bc hydro is a great company to work for. The Indigenous relations team of approximately 65 people is fun and dynamic.

Cons

Very hierarchical and clicky. New ideas are often stifled by old ways and popular viewpoints expressed mainly by long-term employees. Very difficult to change practices to allow for modernization of... processes and view points.

Advice to Management

Take a chance! Incorporate practises utilized by other utility companies or private companies that are often more dynamic and modern. Example of old ways; not allowing people to work from home. If... you don’t trust your employees, don’t hire them or perhaps develop software that takes random photos of their desktop and audit those once a month to see if people are focussing on work. Also allow people to work part time. This will open opportunities for others to share positions in the office and potentially enhance creativity and productivity
