Fine working conditions and pay, benefits
Poor management. Some departments are desperate and miserable. Others function better. Senior leaders don't connect with regular workers. They talk about idealistic things but it's hard to make them happen throughout the company.

Good work life balance
Limited input from employees seems to channel upwards. The workplace is very stressed in some areas and Senior management seems focused on making themselves appear better from a fiscal perspective. Poor and inefficient anti-fraud programs.

Typical Govt. Culture
It's a typical government culture, I did enjoy working for the organization but since I am not good at politics, so I was misfit for the environment. It's not an easy place to work.

Excellent place to work that offers a competitive salary and above average benefits. Career progress could be slow and challenging. Beware of politics
The WSIB is an excellent place to work. They provide a competitive salary and above average benefits. They strive to maintain work life balance and keep their employees trained and up to date in their respective fields. The Company actively promotes the health and safety of their employees. On the downside, career advancement could be slow and challenging. Also, politics tend to interfere with the technical aspects of your job and at times the lines separating union and management appear to be blurred.

Too much politics
Management is highly unorganized and political. No place for growth unless you know someone. Highly vendor driven culture as its easy to pass the blame for management failures

Organization still living in the past
The organization is very resistant to change, which makes creating good work difficult and time consuming. There is little positive culture to speak of, as most people I interacted with had an 'us vs. them' attitude. LOTS of meetings, but very few meaningful interactions with management. Stay away.

Demanding with high expectations
The WSIB is a very demanding position with high expectations. It is constantly evolving and you must be able to continue to adapt.
You are expected to be very motivated and organised to manage the high caseloads.

Customer service is the first expectation and timely decision making plus returning phone calls are required.

There is expectation of communication both verbally and written.

High turnover
High expectations. Monitored constantly. No time for breaks. Call centre environment. Very ‘clicky’ groups.
Stressful. On calls all day listening to complaints or people who have been injured
Pros
Great salary
Cons
Biweekly screening & review of calls, lots of criticism, on calls all day, timed on everything you do

Horrible place
Human Resource department is a nightmare to work with. People who run it are not fully equipped to understand and manage the complexity of the organization. Senior management are so concerned about "optics" that they sometimes fail to do what is right.

Not recommended for Young Talents
I will not recommend WSIB for young and growing professionals, but better place for those planning to end the career. Benefits are great and opportunities are limited
