The company is great for job security. Sometimes a bit hard to change jobs. Company has a great vision but sometimes hard for management to articulate and live by the vision. Currently the company is embarked on a major culture change program that is reshaping its work culture as it emerges from a service company as a Sask insurer of all to privately owned public corporations focused on making profits.
Points positifs
Job security and great people to work with.
Points négatifs
Slow personal progress.

I felt very secure working at SGI. A lot of opportunities not always in the rural areas. The culture is moving into a positive direction. Great core values.

SGI is a Crown Corporation. It is employee friendly organisation. It provides one day off every other week other than normal holidays. There is employee union which helps you resolve any issues with the management and seniors.
Lot of learning opportunity and connection between employee and manager is good.

Even opportunity to grow your career with equal chance with internal training and various opportunities.

Interview usually done by specific department hiring. This is better than just an HR department doing the hiring. Unfortunately since it's unionized, there is a large range of work attitudes, with little motivation for those who overperform.
Points positifs
Good job security, lots of opportunity for overtime
Points négatifs
Unfortunate culture

PROS:
Difficult to get your foot in the door; once you do, and clear your probation, it can be quite worthwhile to stay, depending on your ambitions and priorities.

SGI does value employees' personal development and 100% funds any CIP, FCIP, and business-related courses and education.

The health, dental, life insurance benefits and vacation days are standard for government/crown employees. Vacation starts at 3 weeks a year, increases to 4 weeks a year after 8 years of service, and so on.

The pay is quite generous once you move past the clerical positions. Compared to similar roles nationally, SGI is amongst the higher paying employers. SGI also gives all employees an annual 'bonus' based on their years of service and current salary.

There is ample free parking within any department that is not downtown.

CONS:

The workload is usually quite heavy, so most employees are overworked, stressed to meet deadlines, and not trained adequately enough when entering any new roles. There is no succession planning for positions management knows will be vacant within xxx days.

It is quite difficult to get the vacation days you want unless you have the seniority for it or have planned a year in advance and pre-booked everything with management.

One common issue is the micromanagement and low morale within most departments. Most departments have a "keep your head down and keep working" type of work environment. The corporation claims to value all employees' input, but this is simply not true. Front-line or lower-level employees can easily get black-listed for speaking up when they see

Points positifs
Excellent pay & benefits, 100% covered tuition, free parking if not at head office

The people are great to work with. The work was easy enough, but repetitive and often not engaging. The type of work depends on your experience level. The best part of SGI are the people you get to work with.
Points positifs
Free lunches

A typical work day in the Call Centre was to answer calls from the public, licence issuers, law enforcement and various businesses within Saskatchewan and also from outside agencies in Canada. This was a very fast paced environment, and sometimes very stressful. It was the last position I held and it was very satisfying.

I also worked in many areas of the corporation and learned a lot about insurance and how insurance works.


Most of the management were pretty good. The only flaw is that they moved around the corporation and the employees really didn't know why. Sometimes they would keep a manager in a position for a long time and other managers would move around. Some were good, some were not.
Points positifs
Benefits
Points négatifs
No recognition for hard work

Points négatifs
