Manager (Current Employee) – London, ON – 16 October 2017
Our company is currently going through a restructure and cost cutting exercise that is expected to last multiple years. They have proven that there is very little job security available within this company at this time. The current culture and atmosphere is toxic. Leadership is poor at all levels. Only the top crust of executives have an idea of what is going on and they are not sharing with their direct reports. Very little trust between leadership and practitioners. HR department is not very good. Great people at the practitioner level. Great Cafeteria.
I have always have had great success working with co-workers, management, and customers in my career with London Life. The company takes pride in its work and the management has always encouraged everyone to ask questions and enhance your knowledge though many educational options available in house and outside the company.
Data Entry Processor (Former Employee) – London, ON – 13 August 2017
Great company with supportive management and lots of opportunities for education and advancement. A leader in both the industry and in the community through various events such at the Forest City Road Races. Lots of perks through employee benefits. Was a huge privilege to work at London Life.
UX Designer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 July 2017
I worked in the Digital Department side and felt that my manager had less experience in the field than I did. I hardly ever had any work to do, and when I did it wasn't challenging. This department was very unorganized and it was difficult to do your job correctly because there was a lot of politics and red tape. After I eventually left, a lot of other people did and many were let go/laid off as well. You'd think for an insurance company they would have awesome benefits, but they are pretty basic.
AML/ATF Corporate Compliance Support Coordinator (Former Employee) – London Life, London Ontario – 30 May 2017
I started on contract in Corporate Compliance and became permanent part time working a full time day because the workload demanded me to be there full time. Enjoyed my job and enjoyed the people I worked with. I retired from London Life Dec. 31, 2017 and would still like to continue working part time or contract at a job to keep me occupied when I am not working in my gardens at home. Working two or three days a week would be ideal.
great co-workers, feeling of satisfaction completing work
Contract Auditing and Corrections (Current Employee) – London, ON – 22 April 2017
The contract auditing department is awful.They go through management turnover because no one wants to stay and the workers who do everything get treated poorly. It's a never ending contract without security or benefits.
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – London, ON – 13 March 2017
I worked in the 4th floor cafeteria as a dish room supervisor. First of all, probationary period here is 6 months not the usual 3 as at other companies. Cafeteria management is the worst I've ever seen in this industry. Management leads you to believe you are doing a great job and fills you with false hope. When I was released from my position just before the end of my probation management refused to give me a specific reason why they felt I didnt meet their expectations. Best of luck to the next individual who applies for the Dish Room Porter Lead Hand position. People call in sick constantly and constantly understaffed. The employees who have been there awhile get away with things they would never get away with at any other company.
Life Insurance Representative (Former Employee) – London, Ontario – 8 March 2017
I love working with people and assisting them to find coverage for their needs. With Segregated Funds invested under an Insurance Company there is good return on investment and safety of the investment.
