    I have been working at WorkSafeBC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, a lot of opportunities for growth, good in-house education program and tuition reimbursement, solid attempts at diversity and inclusion.

    Cons

    Wages aren't commensurate with living expenses in lower mainland, quality of management varies greatly, under represented minorities in higher roles, rodent infestation in Richmond office, over priced cafeteria, negative attitude is pervasive in certain departments

    Advice to Management

    The importance of a healthy work-life balance is readily apparent are WorksafeBC; however, the reality of Vancouver's high cost of living is a huge stressor for many employees that feels ignored.
