Extremely nice work life balance
Administrator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 July 2016
A very laid back workplace with a flexible schedule. However, avenues for career advancement are limited. Coworkers are very nice though managers can be a flip of the coin.
Pros
Flexible schedule
Cons
Not many avenues for advancement

Fun workplace, good people, wish they paid more.
Investor Services Agent (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC23 April 2016
This was a fun workplace, the atmosphere among employees was great. The pay however was ridiculously low for a company in the securities industry. Also, the culture within management is such that there is an IN group, and so, it is difficult to advance in spite of being talented.

Acceptable workplace

My experience with Computershare was demanding, and 247 for over 15 years straight
Senior programmer Analysr (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 December 2015
Computershare is a global company with Australia parent. There is a wide scope of talent within this company. My particular area of expertise was a unique system specifically designed and maintained to satisfy the ever evolving Mortgage Backed Securities System. The Custodial record keeping system, vault details of certified Mortgages to be Pooled and daily transmissions to CMHC and participating Insurers is very specific. Receipt of all Participants (the banks) for the most part must ensure that the components of all pool were complete as per CMHC. Monthly payments of all principal, penalties, adjustments and redemptions for all security holders were calculated and distributed to security holders as per payment method desired (cheque, direct deposit or EFT). All financial reporting and distribution reports generated and some posted for Interested parties on a secured website.
All billing of services provided were invoiced based upon services provided. These were in turn used to perform budget allocations.
Pros
I really liked my job and the fine turning required many times with little advance notice.
Cons
Long hours and no backup

Learned a lot about securities industry
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC18 March 2013
A typical day consisted of answering a multitude of calls from brokers and shareholders regarding various securities.

I learned a lot about the stock market including the types of corporate actions that take place etc.

Management was apathetic in terms of the stress involved for the employees.

Co-workers, for the most part, were amiable however all of one's time was spent on the phone so there wasn't much time to get to know one another.

The hardest part of the job was that it did not feel as if those in charge were backing the employees.

The salary was the best part of the job but, in my opinion, not worth the stress of the job.
Pros
salary
Cons
30 minute lunches, employee stats were emailed to everyone daily

Investors admin (Former Employee) –  montreal26 March 2013
It was a great place to work as an entry customer service agent but once you got promoted you had to deal with the upper management people were ridiculous. Was told I wasn't allowed to talk to my old colleagues that work in customer service because it would "destroy our image".
Pros

Great Company to work for. They can be a little cheap on staff and management does need better training. To much office gossip and not enough work.

Enjoyed my time at the company. Unfortunately, I was laid off. I felt that I was paid pretty well and the best perk was once a month they brought in a massage therapist. Co-workers were pleasant, along with the environment. Really liked the work I did.
