    Pros

    Good pay and great bens! Most teams and managers are nice and great to work with. Flexible work schedules.

    There are some unreasonable expectations sometimes from upper management. Sometimes the focus is too much on the bottom line. Workload can fluctuate. Little room for advancement especially if you're not a case manager.

    Advice to Management

    Set more realistic goals for claim management.

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Flex work arrangement
    Can carry over vacation
    DBO pension plan
    Tuition Assistance

    Cons

    Barriers to advancement due to unionize environment
    Very few opportunities for growth
    Very few racial minority groups that work here or that are in management
    This is a place you go to settle not a place to dream
    Very few people with formal university education or masters degrees etc. which makes it hard to take them seriously especially when they are managers/directors

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of work sample aspect of interview and stop letting seniority control everything. Place a great emphasis on education and qualifications

    Pros

    Location, the few employees that are respectable are the only thing holding it together

    Cons

    The procurement department is completely toxic, with spiteful vindictive personnel. Stress level is always elevated and is otherwise a horrible place to work if you value a work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Address toxic employees immediately, improve the culture and finger pointing and foster a positive environment

    Pros

    The WSIB is doing a lot to become a competitive organization and be more productive at what they do. Exciting time to be a part of the WSIB.

    Cons

    Work as a case manager can be very demanding. Because it's a unionized environment, often the best fit for a role won't receive the position because there will always be someone who was there longer. Culture is still a bit outdated with emphasis on traditional workplace benefits not fit for millennials.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the recruitment of suitable case manager. Amending the union contract to allow for more productive recruitment.
