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

    Pros

    Large company that invests in their people, values diversity, inclusion, etc. There is plenty of opportunity to grow your career if you're self motivated in managing your career and take initiative to move into new positions/challenges.

    Pay is decent, benefits are great compared to other organizations.

    Cons

    Some of the processes and bureaucracy can be stifling. The union mindset is not preveliant through the entire company though would be better off if it didn't exist at all.

    Advice to Management

    Where possible, run the company like an insurance company., not a government controlled puppet organization

    I have been working at ICBC (Canada) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many different areas to work in so just about anyone can find work that sure to be interesting and rewarding. The benefits are generous, work life balance is better (and more respected) than other big organizations I've worked at. Great potential for mobility internally always, but particularly now with so many in ICBC's workforce reaching retirement stage.

    Cons

    Rigid union compensation structure works well for most jobs (lands around market rate, benefits make up the difference if below), but falls short for a few making it difficult to hire/keep people with the skills we need in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on long-term success and service to British Columbians.

    I have been working at ICBC (Canada) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary
    9 day fortnight
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Training provided does not adequately prepare you for the job. Needs to be much more practical and related to the day to day job duties.

    Advice to Management

    A wholesale review of the training provided to external senior injury adjusters is required. The training needs to be much more practical and there should be a lot more support and formalized mentoring and training provided in the role.

    Pros

    There are lots of pros to working at ICBC, the pension program, the positive, engaging and collaborative working environment, the head office facilities. Plus, its nice to work for a company that is socially and environmentally conscious!

    Cons

    In typical "government" fashion is takes time to get the ball rolling sometimes, and coming from a role in the private sector, that's taken some getting used to.
