    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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!

    I have been working at Manitoba Public Insurance

    Pros

    The pay is good for the province of manitoba they have great benefits over all and the people at the staff level are great.

    Cons

    too much politics, poorly educated staff, limited job experience with other corporations, not very versitile

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recognize and support staff, through mentoring, accessiblity and being approachable. Leardership allignment is key to thesuccess of this corporation, supporting and developing younger staff should also be senior managments primary concern as the skilled workforce is aging.
