Benefit Payment Office
Claims Processor (Current Employee), London, ONtJuly 27, 2015
Throughout the day I organize multiple different claim forms (medical, heath and dental) and enter them into Great West Life's database. Through this experience I have learned the importance of attention to detail and accuracy as well as the ins and outs of basic office procedures. The hardest part about this job is the isolation and lack of communication with others as a requirement of this job is 98% accuracy and 100% focus. The best part about this job is that at the end of day I get to leave and not worry about bringing work home with me or thinking about it after I leave the office.

If you want the stability of working in a large company with decent pay in the smaller city of London, this is one of the very few places to be at.

London Life/Great West Life/Canada Life Worst Company to Work For
Contract Escalator (Former Employee), London, ONMarch 30, 2015
Pros: I don't work there anymore
Cons: I used to work there
A company undergoing massive restructuring. Most employees are under a torrential amount of stress. Most are ready to snap at the smallest of problems.

Work/life balance does not exist for those who are in new projects, as Great West Life is trying to consolidate practices through new business initiatives which my own personal observations have suggested will fail.

Opportunities are only available to progress in the company if over educated, while still being undervalued. The company doesn't compete with the external job market, because the corporate culture does not allow room to place importance on individuals.

Most days started optimistic, and would quickly spiral out of control. There is a real lack of organization and team effort. Most people are trying to just get through the day.

Marketing/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Sarnia, OntarioMarch 5, 2015
Pros: worked for husband
Cons: worked for husband
Very difficult industry, always having to look for your next client whether you are at work or not. Convincing people they need what you are selling isn't easy because it deals with death sickness and retirement.

Co workers aren't really an issue as you are considered business for self.

Hardest part is commission sale and enjoyable part is interacting with the clients.

Can be great or terrible depending on dept
Client Service Coordinator (Former Employee), LondonApril 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 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.

A day as A life and marketfund agent
Life Insurance and Marketfund Representative (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONNovember 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 job is when London Life was sold to another company. Seeing the service part of London Life not being exercised was very hard.

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.

Environnement agréable.
Adjointe marketing (Former Employee), London, ONFebruary 4, 2015
Répondre au téléphone, régler des dossiers clients des conseillers (9) dont je m'occupais, faire du classement, préparer des dossiers.

La Directrice était très humaine.

Aspect difficile: surcharge de travail durant les périodes bien précises, tel que la saison des REER, durant les activités de ventes.

L'équipe de filles était bien soudée.

La compagnie qui a développé "Liberté 55"
Représentante (Former Employee), London, ONJuly 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.
