Très piètre management
Directeur principal (Former Employee) –  Montréal-Ouest, QC4 February 2018
Après plusieurs années au sein du mouvement Desjardins, j'ai constaté une gestion du personnel et surtout une RH plus que limite...
Si les postes de caissiers et de Directeurs ( N7 max. ) sont accessibles à tous, en revanche, les postes d'encadrement supérieurs les mieux considérés et les mieux rémunérés sont encore destinés aux québécois. Cela est due en grande partie au système de caisses autonomes qui laisse aux petits chefs des décisions de recrutement et de RH très au dessus de ce qui devrait être admissible.
Beaucoup de "copinage" et de cloisonnement. Peu de place au respect de l'initiative personnel et à la reconnaissance.
Même l'évolution par l'acquisition de nouveaux diplôme ( MBA par exemple ) n'est pas valorisé, puisqu'il faut prendre de ses congés et de sa paie pour y avoir droit...
Bref, décevant.
Passez votre chemin si possible
Pros
Pas grand choses par rapport aux autres banques
Cons
Xénophobe, déstructuré, RH souvent inexistantes.

A good organization to work for
Senior Client Relationship Manager GRS (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB29 January 2018
I liked the organization due to their long history in Canada and the fact that they are a credit union and not an organization that is listed on the stock exchange.

Very productive and fun place to work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON26 January 2018
A typical day at work included:
- maintaining registers, managing email correspondences, attending to Client queries, liaising with Agents, managing office mail and courier including mass mailers, maintaining catalog of forms from MGAs

The job helped me gain confidence in communication at different levels in corporate sector. Also it improved by event organisation skills.

The management was very cooperative and supportive

Workplace Culture is very conducive.

Hardest Part of the job was when I have to manage tasks of my colleagues along with my own tasks when they are away

Enjoyable Part of the job was in maintaining various registers.

Good for balance but little chance for advancement
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 December 2017
If you are working in Toronto, unless you are in Sales, you will not have a progressive career. If you are content to have a job that pays well with good balance, but not much chance of advancement, it could be a good fit for you.

Very stressful
Accounting Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 November 2017
Desjardins is a Quebec-based company. As a result, one is always waiting for the next restructuring, to see if they have a job left. Regular restructurings occur every 2 years.
