Manager, Investments (Contract) in Richmond, BC
WCB is a very comfortable if a little boring place to work. I was in Finance. The people are quite helpful - no politics etc. That said it could be veeeeryy sloooow in getting things done...and the spreadsheets...oh GOD so many spreadsheets!

This employer operates like a cult.
I have never felt more dehumanized and belittled as I have working here. There is a herd mentally here that manipulates and degrades employees until they conform.....I left because I was sick from stress. The only prudent comparison I can make is its run like a cult. So happy to be done with the subhuman people i was surrounded by.
Great salary and benefits, and great people to work with, but management is a complete failure. No shortage of being monitored. You will be asked to update them frequently on your status, or whether you are actually working or not. If working in a call queue, your stats are reported to the nearest second, and you cannot be late, or come back from lunch even 2 minutes after the schedule. You will be messaged by your manager if you are. If you don’t mind being treated like a prisoner for good money and good benefits, you will enjoy this company a lot. Be prepared for ZERO employee appreciation.

Lots of opportunities for learning and advancement.
Working for WSBC is mentally exhausting. Depending on the department you work in clients can be extremely abusive and volatile which makes working for WSBC very stressful. The Benefits are exceptional. The work environment can be toxic depending on the department. The opportunity to learn and advance is abundant. There is job security. The union is exceptional. Depending on your job and department working here can be very rewarding. The multicultural and inclusive atmosphere makes for a great place to work. WSBC is an equal opportunity employer.
I was at WorkSafeBC for almost 15 years. I found moving the organization's mission forward to be very rewarding. Working along with employers and unions to prevent preventable injuries at work and helping injured workers to regain their health and get back to work is wonderful work. My colleagues were all very intelligent and very positively motivated to do the right thing. Managers were very supportive. It was a very stimulating environment. There were a great many opportunities for advancement.
