If you could work for any company in B.C., who would it be?
That's the question put to 3,328 British Columbians in a recent poll by Insights West in its second annual Dream Employer survey.
The survey suggests more than one-third of working people in the province aren't particularly satisfied with their jobs and have a very specific wish-list of top employers.
Compensation is the most important benefit, followed by flexibility of work hours, medical benefits, bonuses, profit-sharing and opportunities for advancement.
