      Pros

      The benefits are pretty good. The headquarters has a cafeteria and gymnasium.

      Cons

      WorksafeBC likes to project the image that they are a good company with good values but this is hardly the truth. Micromanagement is very common in the company and employees get overworked and stressed. I do not feel like I am being valued as an employee that works hard. Salaries are much lower than industry standards and there is a lot of bureaucracy. There are many rules and regulations that make the job harder than it should be. There is very little creativity allowed and different perspectives are not welcome, everyone has to conform to the accepted way of doing things, for example: I had to fix my font on a document before because it was not the "correct size". The higher-ups at WorksafeBC only compare the company to other mediocre BC crown corporations and then think they are doing a good job because WorksafeBC is better...yes, but your goals should be much higher than that!

      Pros

      - Great benefits and vacation for management employees - Amazing employee fitness program - Nice coworkers for the most part. There are people with “personalities”. - Large company and have a lot of resources

      Cons

      - Hierarchical work culture - Slow, bureaucratic, rigid and can be really political - Depending on your role, not a lot of autonomy or authority over your work product - salary is average or below average - limited opportunities to grow. In fact some departments seem to favour external candidates and not internal ones - some poor leaders that see themselves on a different team than the people (us versus them type of mentality) - lots and lots of middle managers that literally manage (not lead) people - high volume of work
