    I have been working at ICBC (Canada) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The total compensation package is excellent. The work/life balance is respected and desired. We have a great gym and exercise classes both at lunch and after work. There are lots of opportunities to develop and grow in your career, if you have the right skills, knowledge and attitude.

    Cons

    There are challenges working for a large, government organization but there is also a commitment to always try and make it better, especially for the customer.
    The business, tort model needs to be changed. We are just plugging the holes and the lawyers are the winners in BC. The previous Liberal government skimmed off a lot of capital from ICBC.

    Advice to Management

    Improve all the things we didn't do during our large Transformation Program initiative. There are some real issues with roles and responsibilities. There are also issues with no control over decision making or when escalated, nothing is done.

    Pros

    Great people, trying hard and committed to what they do. Love my manager and colleagues. Great benefits (pension, vacay, health care). Lots of ability to try different jobs/careers now. Good, committed leadership team and new board seems good so far.

    Cons

    Pretty much permanent salary freeze on management. Salaries frozen for 7 years I think. Hard to make ends meet in expensive province. Also Permanent state of uncertainty, reorganization every year, audits and “reviews” are constant. Lots of time spent on those. Trying to do too much with too little.
