Great company with a confused direction
Manager Sourcing & Procurement (Former Employee) –  Toronto19 July 2018
Was a great company, went through several ups and downs, some managers seem to have lost focus, i feel that most of the business was lost because of the lack of focus, some clients have been very open and vocal about the disappointing quality of service
Lack of communication to staff is huge, nothing seem to be transparent within the organization, It has lost its human touch
Pros
work life balance
Cons
lack of direction, and communication to staff

Fun Place to Work
Advisor (Former Employee) –  Cold Lake, AB8 March 2018
This position was not just a job but a position that would make a difference. No matter how hard or small a task there was always a great team to help through this. Team work is always the key to any position.

Very busy!
Relocation Advisor (Former Employee) –  Trenton, ON6 December 2017
No work life balance at all! Job included more duties than any one human being could possibly complete within the 7.5 hour work day. There's a lot of stress with this job. Sometimes a very thankless job
Pros
Co-workers
Cons
Stress, stress, stress

Heavy work load
International Relocation Advisor (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON4 October 2017
A typical day in the office would be to manage +50-75 emails, 3-4 appointments, admin on current files, process claims and manage new incoming files.
It was a very busy office as the team was understaff.

RELOCATION ADVISOR (Current Employee) –  Wainwright, AB28 August 2017
I have learned in this position that management style is very important when trying to work here. The company has changed to meet the criteria of the new contract and therefore has put several seasoned employees out of work.

BGRS (formerly Brookfield Global Relocation Services)
Relocation Consultant (Former Employee) –  Canada1 July 2017
Surprising your employees and corporate clients that you sold off clients to a competitor is burning bridges in the relocation industry. BGRS caused the layoffs of their employees in 2017 by selling off a portion of their client portfolio to focus on profitable clients.
Pros
Monday to Friday job
Cons
tough job on the front line, heavy caseload, overtime, working through your lunch is normal, lack of support from management, lack of training

This company was the best
Supervisor & Advisor (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB14 October 2015
unfortunately, this company was acquired by Brookfield and was never the same after. Training was reduced to bare minimum, various policy changes popped up and budget cuts made a lot of employees quit
