Litigation Assistant (Current Employee), London, Ontario – August 27, 2012
Pros: gym on first floor open 24/7

A typical day would include opening a new file, serving the Notice of Intent to Defend or Statement of Defence, answering correspondence via e-mail, fax, and regular mail, scheduling Examinations for Discovery and Mediations and taking care of invoices.
The supervisors would get angry if we could not resolve a call and had to have it escalated as they would then have to work.
Job Work/Life Balance
Can be great or terrible depending on dept
Client Service Coordinator (Former Employee), London – April 19, 2014
Pros: a company to be proud to work for
Cons: nepotism throughout; management varies in quality
Was hired on a three month contract for Wealth Management special project. Loved the department. Management was great and many fun events. Kept getting renewed first for 3 months, then 4, then 1, then 1year which was cut 6 months in. Had to post to very low position to finally get ft but it was away from downtown where you were treated like the low – more... level employee you were. Run down facilities, constant stats to be met, very low morale, treated like children but a great team to work with and very simple work. You could go home and forget about it but meanwhile, relatives and favorites were brought back into great ft jobs downtown despite their lack of work ethic. Posted back into a new head office department with terrible management, low morale and totally unrealistic work loads, manager who harassed everyone on a daily basis and held constant meetings with trainer building an ongoing paper file just trying to get rid of you. Barely acknowledged Christmas--held Christmas lunch at 2pm on the last day before the holidays! Got to go home 1/2 hr early! As I state depends on the department you are in. – less
Life Insurance and Marketfund Representative (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ON – November 7, 2013
Pros: meeting so many people and gaining there trust.
Cons: company take over
This was a very different type of job, you had to be very self motivated. You saw the hardest things in life such as death, and then deal with people that did not see the benefits-importance of having life products. The manager and office staff were amazing. They always rewarded the hard work and did a lot of group functions. The hardest part of my – more... job is when London Life was sold to another company. Seeing the service part of London Life not being exercised was very hard. – less

Représentante (Former Employee), London, ON – July 11, 2012
Pros: compagnie avec une belle notoriété
Cons: un marché de plus en plus agressif.
De travailler pour cet entreprise a été un honneur. Depuis, la Great West a acheté la compagnie. On me dit que le service à la clientèle n'est plus au premier plan; on mise dorénavant sur "faisont de l'argent". Cette entreprise était reconnue pour son innovation des produits et sa technologie avant-gardiste. J'ai travaillé avec des gens de grande valeur.
