A typical day of work used to be full on enjoyment and motivation. There were many opportunities and there were leaders that laid the foundations for a prosperous future. Coming to work was a pleasure, with many chances to learn things. Co workers now and then were like family. The difference is the leaders now did not earn or learn their positions. They undermine the performance of staff heckling and bullying them. Destroying all motivation to advance, and protecting their own interests rather than protecting the company and it's staff. If audit were to ask them the workings of the company, it's policies and their functions and how they add value to the company, there would be a no answer. This is the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job is enjoying what little of the past company lingers.

politics, lack responsible of leadership and no room for advancement
It is a good company to work with. But pros and cons are there. The company is going through bit hard times In mutual funds investment market in spite of that people there are making sure to give 100 percent to get good credits for company but not getting recognized.
I would say at first you would feel like all is perfect. Everybody in focused on achievement and management on numbers. A good place to start a career in Finance not a lot of room to grow into something big so don't say long. Lot of work and stress on getting the job done but little reward in terms of pay salary

Analyst, NAV Analysis and Control (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 January 2015
Back office role, which is a good entry level work right after University. Good friendly people, but tough management. Highly routine work with limited scope for value added work and/or imagination! Fairly relaxed atmosphere depending on your direct supervisor.
Some coworkers are ok but for the most part, it's about as positive an environment as a DMV. Absolutely no work life balance and no support from senior management. The company is focused on cost cutting and reporting positive results to the parent co., resulting in everything being underfunded and no investment in employees, education, technology or work tools.
Poor management, negative atmosphere, insane amounts of work
