The company was great to work for. I was in an office with several other advisors and the one I worked for. She was not a very good boss. I worked for about 5 months and quit. She was known for not being able to keep assistants. I wish I knew that before I started.
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
They suggest that you are an independent contractor but nothing could farther from the truth. The corporate culture is misogynistic and racist. Greed and self interest are the operating principles......Just a terrible organization
In the 11+ years I have worked here, I have not only enjoyed a great work relationship with all my colleagues but have also developed friendships in these years. I have always felt support through personal losses and challenges outside of work. The environment here is warm and personable and the work challenging at times, as technology is always changing.
Not a good envirnoment if you don't like to be micro managed, as you are told you have to work on Saturdays if you refuse you will get fired and told they no longer need you. Do not work here unless you like have zero freedom.
poor pay, bad management and lack of progression.

Jobs at Assante Wealth Management
Working with Assante Wealth Managment was the best step in my career. This job had a number a diverse opportunities for me to seize. I learned so much in my time with Assante, it is hard to pin point one thing that I learned. I worked with many amazing individuals who were so kind and generous with their knowledge and experience I felt like a sponge taking in all their comments,critiques and direction - each was a teaching moment I embraced. Assante allowed me to develop training programs that took me across Ontario to teach other Administrative Assistants about our products. Event Planning came in the picture because I was required to locate, book venues, prepare and set up for all the training sessions stretching from St. Catharines to Pickering to Thunder Bay. Networking came hand in hand with both the Teaching and Event Planning aspect of the jobs. My supervisors gave me the reigns to make the job what I envisioned it to be.

Most Assante advisors work independently for the main company in Toronto. I had the opportunity to work for one of them who was a complete micromanaging tyrant who made you feel totally incompetent and like you were an idiot. The actual team at Assante head office and other locations from my experience were very generous with their time and knowledge. I just happened to find the one Advisor who didn't look at your positive contributions to his business, but focused on any mistake made in the office. None of which were ever seen by or affected the actual client directly. I would return to Assante in a heart beat - under a different advisor.
I enjoyed my time working at Assante. My co-workers were friendly and welcoming, and I was trained well for my position. As the administrative assistant I made a lot of cold calls which were difficult at first but I learned better communication skills.
