    Instead of fixing a problem, they eliminate it from the equation.

    Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee) North Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsThe work hours, the location, the benefits (pension, medical, training). They pay 100 % MSP for you and your spouse.

    ConsThe culture is terrible. They make you complete an employee survey, and if they don't get the desired results for a particular question, they omit the question the following year. Same went for customer satisfaction. They could not reach the benchmark so they took it out of the corporate strategy. Instead of fixing problems, they just dismiss them. The new CEO is absent. They figure if people are not leaving and employee satisfaction is poor, why fix it if there is no turn over.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecome transparent, and attempt to complete the tasks of the front line workers to grow some empathy.

    Worst Professional Experience

    Project Manager (Former Employee) North Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsGood benefits, work-life balance and pension plan.

    Advice to Senior ManagementICBC is an incompetent organization and should be privatized.
