Short, concise
IT Analyst (Employé actuel) –  Saskatchewan18 juin 2019
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

Can be Great or Terrible Depending on Your Priorities
Claims Adjuster (Ancien employé) –  Regina, SK18 novembre 2018
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
  plus... something wrong.
Finally, one common point of angst among many employees is that any promotions (if not based on seniority, due to the unionized environment), are based on an "aptitude & knowledge" test, which 9 times out of 10 has absolutely nothing to do with the actual job requirements and duties. Senior management claims that all internal job postings are fair/equitable, but I find this simply to not be true.

Good people to work with.
Clerk (Ancien employé) –  Regina, SK26 avril 2018
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.

Was a good place to work
Customer Service Representative I and II (Ancien employé) –  Regina, SK20 juillet 2016
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.
