They tend to invest in your training "initially" which naturally costs to recruit & train but they drop the ball in the "retain" part. They shy away from investing further into their existing employees financially to take courses (internal as well as external training). They say you can learn and grow and have a career there but in my experience, that definately isn't so. Therefore, if you are looking to grow with a company or in the finance world, I suggest look elsewhere as Servus isn't it. This company is an unethical organization with little integrity, after working here, I wouldn't even recommend being a "member" let alone an employee. Do as little as possible for their members and employees.
Gossip, Malicious, lazy and uncreative, high fees and unorganized.
Good company to work for, growing pains affect staff at branches
Financial Advisor/Investment Specialist (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 13 January 2018
- Great benefits package - Provincial company so lots of locations to choose from - Limited advancement opportunities unless willing to relocate to Edmonton - Many great networks within the company for the benefits of the staff, young leaders network, women's network, presidents advisory council, innovation groups - Good incentive pay system - Willing to train right candidates for positions - Biggest downfall is that the executive leadership team are mostly well removed from their time in branch (if they were ever in a branch), so often decisions that are made are difficult for branches to deal with the fall out of. - Increasing pressure on sales culture
Benefits, Cooperative culture, Credit Union mentality
