Org that hires good people, but doesn't retain talent
Senior Investment Accountant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 July 2017
Daily and monthly processes are pretty standard for a fund administrator. Good place to learn the ropes, and start off your career. Compensation was lacking, and a lot of the good employees leave in a short period of time.
Pros
Foosball Table
Cons
Compensation was not competitive

work under pressure
Associate (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC22 May 2017
Nice people around you. However, you work too much under pressure and get burned out easily. Days are often too intense. There are multiple deadlines during the day... might be stressful.

Fund Accountant (Current Employee) –  Krakow20 April 2017
Hours vary depending on workload. It is difficult to plan activities or join groups

There are few supervisory and management positions so advancement opportunities are limited.

Transfer Agency Canada
Sr. Associate - team leader (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 February 2017
Day to day are very long hours, Overtime is normally not paid even if you worked more than 8 hours. Must be approved in advanced but it is never approved. I learned nothing from this company, You need to be self educated. They show you a few things but no training. Because they have too many clients and not enough employees. The most difficult part of the job was to be productive after 8 or 9 hours.
Health and dental benefits are very good. Location is good too.
HR is supportive too.
Pros
location, benefits
Cons
very very long hours. No balance for work/life.

Senior Corporate Actions Specialist (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 December 2016
Obviously work experience depends on your department - some work flexible shifts, and others do not not. But as overall company provides a lot of opportunities to get involved with fun activities during work and outside of work. Lots of groups you ca join, great networking possibilities.

Intense Environment
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 October 2016
Intense environment with a lot of opportunity for overtime and learning new things. Flexible work arrangements may make work/life balance possible.
Amazing co-workers but clique management style limits opportunities if not overtly holding back progressive staff wanting to contribute more and/or challenge stagnant ideas. There is lack of communication potentially due to structure of organization.
Most challenging part of job is rapidly changing demands and reactive culture.
Most enjoyable part of the job is the network of colleagues and opportunities to learn.
Pros
Flexible work arrangements
Cons
Muddy culture
