Great time to join a great company!
Underwriter (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, ON17 November 2016
Reviews from 2013 are now irrelevant. It is a new company with new people and leadership. Big things are in the works at economical and now is a great time to start! The company pays for your schooling to help you develop your career, a leadership team that cares about you and your ambitions, flexible benefits, pension plan, self development opportunities, community giving, and great coworkers.
Pros
Great wages for the type of work, benefits, employee appreciation
Cons
Service customers nationally so hours can run until 630pm

Beware of "Transformation" run away from this company.
Sourcing (Former Employee) –  Waterloo28 October 2013
This is not the time to work for this company. Better to wait until they go public. They will need talented people at that time, right now it's just about cost cutting. Horrible atmosphere.
Pros
none
Cons
Board of directors and top management very self serving.

Comment – December 16, 2013

do not work for this company, they are closing branches one after the other, it is not worth leaving a steady job to work here, go to aviva, or crawford, managment is horrible you only get promoted if you kiss up, and goof around, you work hard do your job and are over looked. do yourself a favour move along

It was once a fine company to work for.
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Waterloo10 September 2013
Economical was a good company, such a shame things changed... Yes there were always issues with favoritism when it came to promotions but that happens at many companies.
The turning point was "demutualization". Now all that management cares about is cutting expenses, and employees are expensive. It's not about providing the best service, or treating the customers, brokers or employees fairly...... It's about making the company look appealing to invest in once they become a public company. From good work and family balance to corporate greed.... Unless agile lean are your two favorite words, you won't be happy there
Pros
Leaving
Cons
Your an expendable resource

Call Centre environment
Auto Adjuster Representative (Former Employee) –  Mississauga3 November 2012
Typical Call Centre environment, calls after calls your clients are not able to get ahold of you and it's expected that whoever is logged into the phone queue, deal with your clients.
Pros
good salary and benefits
Cons
management expect you to work like robots
