Very poor managment. They don't even know the job themselves and treat employees with favor-ism. dont bring up issues to managment because they back stab you. If you hang out with them they might end up liking you.
Free food sometimes
Weak Training process basicaly you are on your own. Good Luck!
Senior Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto – 1 February 2017
I have worked at Morneau for over 4 year, I did not go voluntarily it was part of the Mercer buyout. The environment is very toxic, management does not care unless there is money involved. I work like a dog, for little pay and they don't listen when you tell them there is a problem. They are understaffed, so that mean extra work and they don't expect delay in deliverables even though you are working extra.
Billings (Benefits) Administrator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 December 2016
It was a good experience supporting billing, invoicing , reporting and supporting all operations involved. Also taking actions with collections; in coordination with consultants; following established procedures.
The company needs to practice what it preaches ! Horrible place.
A little of everything (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 December 2016
I have been with Morneau Shepell for three years .There is a severe disconnect throughout the organization from the the top right to the bottom. Your forced to do several jobs at once with no compensation or even a "thank you, good job," I'm on my second stress leave in three years because this company doesn't care about there employees they keep pushing you and pushing you until you either break or quit.
Stressful working conditions, to many non qualified mangers barking out orders and you have no say. Poor salary.
Anonymous (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 24 November 2016
There was not a lot of consistency or areas for growth in the department I worked for. The coworkers were great however it is clear most people were disengaged as leadership rarely solicited feedback or involved employees in decision making.
Pension Analyst, Full-time (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 November 2016
The workload was massive for the student and both my friends and I feel racist during our working.
But it is a good place to enhance your problem-solving and time management skills since working for three teams requires you to have a strong sense of time and managers always assign special projects to you with minimum supervision.
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 November 2016
training consists of three days of company knowledge, with very little on how to actually do your daily tasks. Office environment is very cliquey and hostile, and extremely competitive across the company. Does not foster a team environment in anyway.
The program itself is amazing and helps people
Management, no team environment, extremely competitive
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 10 November 2016
Poor management-intimidating employees Went to another company and met a ex coworker we had the same experience: Being harassed by uneducated supervisors mostly portuguese and the upper management is ok with that. If they dont like your life will be miserable..
Just by changing employer we were able to get 10k extra and plus better benefits...Don't expect to grow in that company and dont waste your time.
Software Developer (Former Employee) – 60 Columbia Way – 15 September 2016
Very poor IT department. Team leads are terrible to deal with, condescending, 'I know more than you' attitude. Senior developers get angry when you ask them anything. Meetings, meetings and just more meetings, meetings are scheduled at will for the most mundane things without regard to one's schedule and work load. You are actually supposed to 'ask around' for clarification when when you do you will be blamed 'you ask too much'. IT head has a poor and humiliating way to communicate with people under him. For some odd reason the IT head is thinks he is running Google, he is oblivious to the needs of his developers. The product itself is poorly written, maintained and there is no way to run it in the development environment. Most of the time I was just guessing on what needs to be done. The QA department thinks they have done a great thing by developing archaic testing framework, nobody told them about Selenium. My strong advice is to stay far far away from this company as possible. They will waste your time and ruin your career.
Everything including the silly company name. Change it!!
Senior Pension Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 August 2016
Morneau Shepell was an excellent environment where I learned and grew in the financial industry. The staffs vwere very nice and helping. Enjoyed learning their internal software such as Ariel View. From having barely any experience in the pension industry to becoming a senior analyst will definitely be one of my lifelong learned experience and knowledge that I will cherish and continue to thrive on. I will always be grateful for everything I learned there.
CLIENT SERVICES/SUPPORT CO-ORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 28 July 2016
I would start my day with checking e-mails, Categorizing them and resolving urgent issues. Leaving the rest for the end of day. Prioritize, Analyzed and Audited Long Term Disability request to ensure process meets deadline. My co-workers was very cooperative. I would address a situation where a feature of the process of a task could be eliminated. My supervisor was very proactive in the sense that she would quickly come up with a solution that save time and increase productivity.
The hardest part of the job was the repetition of Auditing.
The most enjoyable part of the job, was sending out accurate and professional documents and meeting the deadline which gived me a sense of accomplishment.
