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

    Pros

    - Work alongside talented peers who are both great at what they do and great to work alongside.
    - The work can be hard and stressful but we know how to have fun too.
    - Head office is a great location to work for amenities and transit.

    Cons

    - Working for ICBC means you are in the public and media spotlight all the time so that brings a lot of pressure.
    - Opportunities to progress your career can take time - but they'll come if you excel at your work and be patient.
    - While overall pay and medical benefits are very good, working for a crown corporation means there is not much room for monetary support for conferences or team building activities.

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunities to recognize and retain the best talent before they look elsewhere. This is easier said than done but we need to find better ways to recognize those who excel at their work and do what we can to make them want to stay.

    - the people are so nice and friendly (no matter what department you're in)
    - so many opportunities to learn and explore different interests
    - plenty of opportunities for growth
    - one of the most inclusive organizations I've ever come across

    - not the most flexible when it comes to work schedules (depending on which division you're in)

    Pros

    Because ICBC is such a large organization there is so much room for growth and development which the managers are very supportive of. There is also a great benefits plan and lots of vacation days! All the staff are great and it's an overall positive environment.

    Cons

    Salary freeze. No more HIP. Pension premiums going in 2019 = less take home pay.

    Advice to Management

    Find incentives to keep current employees who are effected by the salary freeze content.

    I have been working at ICBC (Canada) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work is varied and there is never a dull moment. Despite perception, ICBC is a very fast paced environment and has put a lot of emphasis on creating operational efficiencies (eliminating waste for you lean folks). Defined Benefit Pension Plan is definitely a bonus and hard to come by these days.

    Cons

    Existing mgt/confidential employees have had a salary freeze since 2012 because of PSEC. Often new employees are paid at much higher rates because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Push for a lift on the salary freeze!

    Pros

    Many opportunities for growth within the company.

    Cons

    Ongoing wage freeze with the management/confidential group salaries. Extended health benefits are outdated in regards to limits for chiro, etc.
