Pros: product sales for employees at very good prices
Cons: everything else
AIMIA is undergoing a big "Transformation" process that is breaking the company apart, absolutely no management support-knowledge, no organization or plans.
Aeroplan, which is owner of AIMIA, is experimenting new management techniques and metodologies to "improve" the company to then implement it at Aeroplan, but until now, nothing seems to work in – more... AIMIA.
Low office morale, no work life/balance, stay away!
CSR (Former Employee), Toronto – November 14, 2012
The company has undergone some restructuring in recent months due to the merger with Aeroplan. There have been quite a few layoffs as a result. Office morale is pretty much non-existant, no respect from upper management, no fairness in the work environment. Absoloutely no work/life balance. The company praises itself on this but its a joke when employees – more... are scheduled evenings and every weekend for months on end. High turnover rate. No one seems to want to stick around in this mess of a company.

Aimia carries on the tennents of the old Carlson Marketing - a high stress environment where every fall there is a RIF with hiring frenzy after the first of the year ... Understaffed with high demand for output ... most key staff work 50+ hours a week for mediocre benefits ... Management focus is on cutting costs at all cost ... that is their bottom – more... line. – less
