Good place to work - if you are in the right dept
Administrative Coordinator, BD (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONFebruary 4, 2016
Next to no training. Worked there for 3 weeks before I was fired for not being "intuitive" enough for the boss and knowing her preferences automatically. Expected to be a expert and know everything about the organization and how it operates from the moment you walk in the door. Took a full week before employee card arrived allowing me to use a printer. New employee set up is brutal. Perks are huge though.
Pros
on site gym, cafeteria, pay and benefits
Cons
lots of corporate training but little job training

LoyaltyOne is a company that believes in promoting the talent in which they have already invested. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of company-directed learning opportunities. If an employee wants to improve their communications style, become an expert in Excel or PowerPoint, or advance their career by developing their management style the company has a learning opportunity for you. Do you want a second degree or a professional designation? LoyaltyOne will help you reach all of your goals. You just have to ask!

Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONAugust 5, 2015
Great place to work. Work was sometimes repetitive and mundane but people were friendly and company events were fun.

I wasn't sure where my career growth would go as promotion prospects seemed limited. However, management was open to having your role expand.
Pros
great company culture
Cons
Repetitive work

Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONFebruary 21, 2014
Likely engaging multiple teams to be productive and achieve objectives as there are many cross-functional groups and a very distributed environment.
Management is supportive with career development and make all attempts to follow best practices as advised by industry leading counsel.
Strong collaboration with co-workers but there are challenges in securing adequate resource support due to the overwhelming number of competing priorities.
Pros
salary, benefits, dynamic workplace
Cons
too many competing priorities, culture of entitlement

Bilingual Premier Lead (Current Employee) –  MississaugaJuly 1, 2015
Working at Airmiles turned out to be a great opportunity to learn and push myself further than I ever did in a job before. My supervisors were always supportive and pushed me to take advantage of the companies job advancement opportunities. I had a great experience working with my colleagues, we were always willing to help each other. The hardest part of the job was meeting the rigid quarterly requirements but the group of people i worked with made everything lighter and manageable.
Pros
many financial bonuses
Cons
employee turn around

Horrible Place to Work, high turnover
Travel Sales/Communications Advocate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONMay 12, 2014
Not the best place to work. God forbid if you get sick, you WILL get fired. There is no easy advancement and it will take you years to get a raise or bonus. I do not recommend this company to anyone looking for a long term position.
Pros
benefits
Cons
no advancement opportunities as promised, low salary

Avoid working for IT in this company
manager (Former Employee) –  torontoJuly 17, 2013
Their IT organization is tyrannical. The organization talks about work life balance and family values but does not practice it. They prefer to bring in new management from the outside rather than promote from within so your chances of advancement are zero.

Only the privileged few get any training.

Decisions are based on nepotism in the extreme.

Stay away from this place especially its IT organization
Pros
ice cream day
Cons
long hours no recognition rule by fear

No balance and poor managers
Former Associate (Former Employee) –  TorontoJune 9, 2014
Very good business model but expectation is you work long hours consistently and are on call with a blackberry. Many managers are moved into their roles because they did a good job as a non manager, but, they grossly lack leadership skills and are eventually terminated.

There are many pockets in the company that favoritism is glaring. This is most evident in IT, HR, Marketing, International and the Call Centre. This "culture" unfortunately creates a highly dysfunctional working environment.
Pros
business model
Cons
extremely poor leadership from the top down.

Customer Care Leader (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONApril 3, 2013
Upper Management has created a back stabbing environment, where you can't trust anyone anymore. HR only supports upper management but they are not there for the Associates. There are lots of bullies in upper management that are glorified but every one is afraid to speak up and when they, do they literally lose their jobs. Right now they have created a horrible working environment. In the last 6 months, LoyaltyOne's Customer Care centre has lots over 6 excellent Customer Care leaders who were not being supported by their managers. It is a pitty that a company with such potential is run by an innapropiate and ignorant upper management. Upper management has a lot of favoritism with certain associates who look good on the outside, who play the game really well, kiss up, but dont actually work or know anything about the business in reality. There is also a lot of bureacracy. If you become a target, you are terminated very quickly.
They also target people in order to reduce costs and meet their yearly budget and they tend to target hard working people who did not do anything wrong. Upper management also does not like to hear constructive criticism, they dont like people who oppose the changes that are turning away customers. They only want "yes people" onboard who only agree with everything, if you dare to disagree with their proposals, even if you have a great point, you become a target or they shut you up (you get spoken to). What ever happened to respectfully chanllenging the status quo which used to be one of LoyaltyOne's operating principles? They just want people to execute
  more... order but they do not really want those who think outside the box, who have new innovative ideas, who challenge the system for better.  less
Pros
great benefits, decent salary, good work life balance
Cons
upper management, they dont value hard working associates, too strict with too many rules, they expect too much from associates.

Terrible Work Environment
Customer Care (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONFebruary 11, 2014
I wonder how a company like this reallt makes it to the top 50 employers of Canada...Oh Wait! I know how! We have a sweet talking CEO that throws in an "awesome" party called a town hall meeting with lots of free food, and right the day after, the employees are provided with a employer evaluation survey.
I worked here for 3 months, and came from a previous corporate background and was tired of being micro-managed by underqualified "managers" or Customer Care Leaders as they would call it.

I was terminated on my last day of a 3-month probation due to a sick leave (documented by a doctors note). Apparently it is not permitted to be sick in this company for the first 3 months. Im still in contact with a lawyer to take this company to court.
Pros
free coffee, some company events, some good co-workers
Cons
underqualified people playing the role of corporate culprits, politics
