    Advice to Management

    (Specific to IT managers) Give some room to younger people Losing talents means losing resources Even though ICBC is a crown company, but you better run it like an insurance company Stop micromanaging, no one performs better with slavery approach There is no point to hire smart people and tell them what to do! Stop advertising your jobs with fake description! You end up hiring overqualified people and they leave...

  10. "No Transparency"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at ICBC (Canada) full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      ICBC is great if you like being kept in the dark

      Cons

      There seem to be a lot of behind closed doors discussions that take place, which affect many of us, yet we’re never privy as to how decisions are reached. I understand we’re not all entitled to know everything but it doesn’t appear ICBC likes to let us in on any understanding of decisions that affect us directly. The whole environment comes across as shady.
