    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Manitoba Public Insurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is ok. They have VRW days to add to holidays but could be getting rid of them next year

    Cons

    Too many levels, stuck in old ways, do not know how to be proactive. Years behind more forward thinking companies.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you want to do and stick with it. Stop rewarding employees that brown nose instead of the ones that do actual work.

    Pros

    Decent pay, move up a level every year Very good benefits Certain level of job security Can work flex hours depending on the job you have

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't have a clue what's going on No promotions, have to apply for every job to move up Some jobs are over worked, some have nothing to do most of the week

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be proactive instead of reactionary Needs a comprehensive vision for the company instead of doing so many piecemeal projects

    I have been working at Manitoba Public Insurance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great wages at all levels, good benefits, many work site locations in province, wide variety of streams for altering career, good coworkers, supporting community emphasized

    Cons

    Union based so in-scope promotion is based on seniority. Out of scope, often more about who you know rather than performance. Troubles with new initiative implementation often frustrate staff at all levels, has continued for years.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership has got to see the ongoing bad attitudes between operations and projects. Scopes are too narrowed and not piloted so negative issues have huge effect on staff, morale, and customers, and are not quickly fixed (full implementation means the problems can be huge when discovered and complex to fix). Update project methodology and understand, listen to project people's expert advise when they recommend scope expansion to avoid an anticipated implementation issue. Plan scope better and involve change management, ergonomics AT THE BEGINNING!
