Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 November 2016
People got the right idea, but the culture is slow and resists to change. Never address true problem, rather focus to spin negatives into positives.

Strong franchise with great opportunity to add value in your role
Director - Financial Planning & Analysis (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 November 2016
The best part of the job is that I feel that I am a trusted adviser to senior management, providing valuable insights and analytics around the business utilizing your financial analysis and reporting skill.

Playing a key role as part of the decision support is challenging and rewarding at the same time.

It is definitely a place for someone who thrives on challenge.

all about selling
Financial advisor (Former Employee) –  Southwest ontario1 November 2016
Lots of favouritism within branches! It's all about the sales and not the client. Hefty sales targets! Stressful working atmosphere! Minimal support system! Expectation for deals and selling is quite unrealistic.
Pros
Full time
Cons
Pay is mediocre, all about sales and pushing management up the ladder
