    Pros

    OIC is a small agency with roughly 200 employees. It has office in Tumwater, Seattle and Spokane. The OIC's mission is to regulate insurance industry through efficient and efficient regulation.

    Just like any government agency, OIC is an excellent place where you can balance work/ life perfectly. There is little overtime, no deadline, and job is much less stressful than in a typical private sector. Also the job security is high.

    Cons

    not much chance of promotion unless a more senior position is vacated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communicate more openly, and freely

    Pros

    Job security, retirement benefits, health benefits, dental benefits, optical benefits, training opportunities, continuing professional education (CPE) and time off

    Cons

    Promotional opportunities are limited at the top. Compression of wages for all classes due to public perception and union negotiations. Unwaranted private citizen and employer criticism of government employees which they feel should be held to a higher standard than private employees. A career is a career and all should be held to a high standard of integrety.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognition with pay for a managers difficulty working with staff in an union environment. The compression issue is acute. Pay based on program and personnel responsibility.
