fast paced environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall, a good place to work with an emphasis on fast pace activity. The best part of the job is the building of relationships with the clients. The tough part is doing all the activities expected in a given day (lots of micro management).

Pros

mobile days

Cons

archaic computer systems

Stressful environment

Alot weighs on the employees shoulders to change, but management is very resistent to change and constantly changing. People in general are nice but new management has the attitude that everyone is replaceable. Lots of discrimination to woman and not supportive of those with disabilities. It was fun to try and change, but hard to get approvals on much needed changes, consultants which made $MM were often the advisors as management preferred to hear about things from the outside vs. thier own people. They did not support or give credit for amazing work, it appears new management had alot of ego - as if they saved the day as the companys efficiency ratio is improving. The hardest part of the job was getting approval and going through too hard processes with PMO office, the most enjoyable was trying to make the must needed changes. The workplace culture is very unique - French English and many different types of business' they throw around the one team slogan but often this meant that core teams were 30 people at a time and tough to move quickly. Management either retired, got fired or went on stress leave and this has been going on for years.

Pros

The people were fun to work with lots of unique culture.

Cons

Way too long hours, very little credit given for amazing work, leadership changing every month- overall ver stressful.

Environnement de travail malsain

J'étais consultante.La Banque se plaignait chaque fois quand j'étais en retard, même si mon retard était du aux l'autobus pas arrivés et que j'attendais sous la pluie. Après quoi j'avais pris un taxi.Même si le tech lead disait toujours que mon travail est superbe, et que je connais plus que lui, le "Directeur" qui avait l'éducation de l'école secondaire, avait terminé mon contrat.Après ça, les joueurs principales de l'équipe sont partis, et le soit disant "Directeur" à était remercié.

Pros

rien

Cons

Investissement ridicule dans le parc informatique; Politiques.

You are working for a Bank - You are a number

If you are new to the financial world, welcome #x . Two years were enough. Laurentian Bank will teach you everything you need to know but the job if VERY redundant. The company won't provide you with equipment to work from home. Very difficult to deal with its customers since most of them want to receive a proper service in French and apparently if you do not speak QC French, it is NOT enough. I wouldn't recommend unless you are looking for a job and can't find anything else. It is a great school, ok benefits and fair pay for what you are actually doing but lots of calls, no idle time, no admin time.

Belle expérience malgré que je travaillais avec la personne la plus jalouse que j'ai connu.

Belle enterprise de petite taille avec valeurs québécoises. Il y a des gens sympathiques Mais beaucoup d'informaticiens font CE qu'ils veulent et non CE qu'ils devraient faire.

Environnement de travail humain , familial et respectueux.

Très difficile d'avoir une vision d'avenir pour cette entreprise. Pas vraiment de direction. Beaucoup de changements plus ou moins positifs depuis une cohabitation...avec la Banque Laurentienne qui n'a pas la même vision du placement et surtout les mêmes formations.Très peu de nouveaux conseillers recrutés.

Pros

Petite entreprise, solidarité entre les emplyés afin d'atteindre les objectifs.

Cons

Pas de vision long terme... beaucoup de changements dans la direction.

Too many changes throughout my 7 years. Products not attractive

This role I had , suited my lifestyle for a few years. I had a few awesome colleagues and I keep in touch with a few too after I left. My clients liked me but not my products. At times this was embarrassing.

Great teams, sad management

Although the branch teams are usually nice, management on top oftens fails to motivate, drive and promote their staff. Also, the system is so far behind other financial institutions, service has to be heavens above top notch to stay remotely on par with the others. Despite all those shortcomings, expectations are way too high. Nope, nope, nope

Pros

Good teamwork and team spirit within branches.

Cons

Poor technology, poor management, high expectations.

Daily transactional processing for commercial clients

Daily financial transactions were time sensitive, resulting in long hours to complete and increased stress levels. With everyone being so busy, there were times when I was delayed in completing certain tasks, as I could not get guidance from senior coworkers/

Pros

Comraderie with experienced coworkers

Cons

Lack of initial training, inability to work from home.

Union = Nope

Management much more concerned about showing numbers than actually making the numbers. Lots of lying and deceit from management and union is almost worse.

Lovely place to work

The typical day beguns at 8:30am. Learnt a deeper appreciation of diversity and the management culture is excellent - involving and considerate. Hope to get position higher-up that involves creativity and oroblem solving. Although, it is still an evolving business entity and this creates room for growth and expansion in the market place.

Great place to work.

Great place to work. Good benefits and very helpful staff. The only drawback is that they have a large presence in Quebec so if you live in the west advancement opportunities are rare.
