FortisBC is a utility so the company structure is hierarchical. Coworkers are supportive and overall culture is relaxed. The company takes good care of employees.

Coming from a different background, it took a bit of time to understand some of the work environment features but, over all a lot was learned and probably could have taken more time to learn more about the organization. Valuable learning experience.

It was a good place to work. I had many different opportunities over the 25 years that I worked there. People can have several different careers if they choose to do that.

Managers hired are not hired for their experience or suitability. Promotion is with experience or moving problem employees up and into different roles

Good work life balance but some of the work given is less engineering related and more like a supply chain. Each person on a team works on the same thing consistently and passes it on to the next.

A bunch of immature managers that think they own Fortis. They all working to make someone's dream come true. They'd make up stories, instead of getting facts right. A total waste of time working there.

Very poor culture...seems like many union employees are simply dragging themselves to work everyday to get one step closer to a nice pension. As a result, there is high levels of frustration resentment and a lack of ambition among the workforce.

Myself, I never received any formal feedback session even though I requested it multiple times.


The Surrey office is located so far out in Surrey it's almost in farmland...very difficult to get to unless you live in the immediate area. Office location, combined with a general lack of enthusiasm in the workforce has me wondering what HR and leadership will do to attract and retain young talent.
Points positifs
Pay, great work/life balance
Points négatifs
Culture, office location

Honestly, I liked working at Fortis but the Management is a huge problem and they need to be retrained. Its a bit silly how they have decided to run things there.
Points négatifs
Horrible Management

Great place to work, a variety of opportunities to be had and excellent benefits with good flexibility and time off. Not very good internal promotion opportunities however.

Tending to incoming and outgoing calls, helping customers understand their bills. Creating payment arrangements, dealing with collections and disconnections.
Workplace culture was great, everyone is so friendly and very helpful when anyone reaches out for help.

The hardest part of the job was talking to the customers who had to change account info to theirs due to their partner passing away.

The most enjoyable part of the job was talking with the customers and being able to help them understand their bills.

Super painful place to work if you have any mindset to think outside the box and challenge the status quo. I worked with good people but the corporate culture is the worst I've experienced

A reasonable place to work with great security, but sub-market pay for professionals.

Management cares about individuals and work-life balance is respected. However, non-trades positions are put into 5 salary bands and pretty much everyone is in the 3rd band. As a result, professional positions such as engineers, business professionals and accountants are paid about 20-30% lower than the BC median. For instance, a 10 year professional engineer would make about $80k, where their peers would make around $100,000 for a similar position. There is no possibility for salary negotiation. As a result, I've observed many departures in the past 2-3 years and difficulties hiring top talent.


Similarly, job culture is stuck in the 90s - it's fine, but lags behind peers such as BC Hydro, Telus, but perhaps still ahead of government.

Interesting technology. For the most part, co-workers are pleasant. A lot of freedom given to solve problems.
If you're willing to listen, there are some very intelligent people here.

Salary has stagnated, however the benefits package is pretty good.

Work Environment is average, typical 9-5 work day and found that the balance wasn't bad. Management really depends on where you are positioned. Job Security is not there unless you have put in 10 plus years and advancement is next to impossible.
