Assante Wealth Management Employee Review
All contingent upon the Advisor and your Team
Work timings were great Workplace culture was toxic with the added micromanagement and bad behaviour Some advisors are luddites (very difficult to work with in this technologically advanced era)
Ratings by category
It’s all about the luck of the draw at Assante. If you happen to work in the Operations department you will likely have a poor manager. It is all about micromanaging and a bullying atmosphere. The hours are good at 8-4:30. Good benefits. The management is the problem however.
Free coffee, tea and hot chocolate, good benefits
Bad managers, busy during RRSP season but not busy for some parts of the year.
Your work is not valued and often credit is applied to the favorite on the team. Pay is not fair and you are expected to work unpaid over time if you want to be promoted or even considered for promotion. The core job is often not too difficult which is good because you are not supported by management at all. You are expected to take verbal abuse from advisors on a daily basis as they are the core earners of the company. Complaints are more likely to come back against you than to help you. They are not committed to the environment or to work life balance. This is not a healthy or good place to work.
unpaid work, negative environment, low pay
