Senior Analyst, Entitlements (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 August 2017
The management does not know how to manage people properly. Even after putting in 60 hrs every week, they demand more hours. No team work. No motivation. No encouragement. Not a place to work if you want to advance your career.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything - from long hours to poor mannagement skills

no job advancement from Mortgage Specialist
Residential Mortgage Specialist (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 August 2017
I worked for them for just over 20 years, 16 as a Mortgage Specialist. After getting very tired of this last role due to how long I had been doing it and the nature of how it had changed, I was not given the opportunity to advance my career to any other roles within this very large domestic company, despite multiple internal job applications of over a year, with a handful of interviews, much "job shadowing", internal networking etc. I feel bitter with them about this. My conclusion is that too much history with one employer is not to your advantage. Best to keep changing employers as there is no loyalty. Used to be much better when I started. Benefits were much more generous too. Met some good people internally and clients over the years and that's about it...They have their head very far up their own, you can guess the rest, to really care about you....
Pros
well known blue chip, for what its worth to clients and me (less and less)
Cons
very arrogant organisation, management...a shadow of its former self...

Productive, fun to work and Learning
Front-end Java developer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 August 2017
Chance to learn new technologies.
Afternoon lunch and evening boat parties every quarter.
Hardest part is project timelines but not all the time. Some days are fun and some days it becomes hectic. Extra hrs some times needed depending upon the project. Have to work on multiple projects at the same time on a need basis.
Liaising with different technical teams as many legacy systems being used.

Meetings sometimes eats up the whole day.
Pros
Free Lunches and evening Parties
Cons
Meetings sometimes takes up whole day

A fair employer
Financial Advisor (Cost Allocations) (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 July 2017
A fair employer
Typical day has no structure, goes according to daily priorities. Have to be mindful of coming back to own tasks in time after meeting urgent requests. Done is considered better than perfect which is good and practical. Information received is sometimes good but sometimes not. Most work and initiatives have to be agreed to or reviewed by many partners due to being a large organization with multiple cross functional impact of any change There are many deadlines each month which need to be met despite distractions. Colleagues are friendly and nice. Management can do a better HR work.
Pros
Discounts with most big retailers, vendors, service providers
Cons
Long Hours, difficult work life balance
