Underwriter/ Assistant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 17 September 2015
Cultural diversity, acceptance and willing to train each new person so he/she would become the best. A lot of work but it was fun to work there and had a lot of rewards for the work done. A good place to get promoted or develop in the direction you desired.

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.
Great wages for the type of work, benefits, employee appreciation
Service customers nationally so hours can run until 630pm
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
Job Work/Life Balance
It was once a fine company to work for.

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
