Great experience & opportunities
Employee (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg28 October 2018
The company provides great job opportunities and experience. The opportunity for training and education is highly valued and company pays for courses. The pay is fair.
The work load was heavy and higher management was not concerned about the work load on the employees. Employees need to work lots of overtime to get things completed without compensation or recognition. The current General manager for Winnipeg did not help out the staff which caused other managers & employees to pick up the load and work long hours. Managers had little time for their staff and didn't want to be disturbed. The staff got burnt out quickly and were frequently sick.
Workplace harassment issues went unresolved which made for a unhealthy work place. The communication was poor and staff were never included on big decision making items that would affect them.
If the work load was properly distributed and the managers were more supportive the company would be great to work for.
Pros
Good location, good experience
Cons
Poor management & communication

You'll work hard, but don't expect advancement.
Banking Administrator (Treasury) (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC6 November 2017
A secure job with ok benefits and unimpressive salaries. Advancement is rare, and unpaid overtime are common. It's an alright place to build experience, but be prepared to work hard and long and get little in return. You will have to move to advance your career.
Pros
Somewhat flexible hours.
Cons
Poor compensation.

Long hours, pay is low and it's very stressful. There's no support for the employees and lack of training for management in terms of how to manage and supervise staff are limited. Always in urgent work/mode! No discount for rental/lease as an employee (unless you're a Maintenance employee).
Pros
None
Cons
Back-stabbing, no training and (or) support, PAY is LOW for the work required and the hours worked

Great Corporate Company Culture but Does not apply at Site Level
Administrative Assistant/PA (Current Employee) –  GTA, ON10 November 2016
I have been here many years without advancement or any raises beyond the yearly standard of living increments. The management is all into playing head games, picking favorites and working you to the bone if you are not one of them. No work life balance although they preach it all the time. It really depends who you get as a manager and if you suck up to them or not. If you know how to play the game you will be fine. I'm here because of my family situation but I would leave in a heartbeat if I could. Beware of the site offices as managers are allowed to basically do whatever they want and all have their favorites. A total good old boys atmosphere. Also they pay well below other companies and will give you a lower tittle so they can pay you less but you have to do the work of a higher tittle with no appreciation or compensation. Benefits are good. Head office doesn't bother to visit site offices so have no clue what goes on. Bottom dollar is all anyone cares about. More work since Sunlife took over -Definite Scare Culture.
Pros
Cake on birthday/Benefits
Cons
Jealousy and back biting among employees/more work since Sunlife bought us out

Bad decision
Operation Manager (Former Employee) –  Vernon, BC17 October 2016
Offered an opportunity to become an operation manager. Training involved figure it out or deal with anger replies. Fire code violations to save money, micromanagement and toxic environment. Yes and company trips require you pay and no reimbursement of interest on your credit card. Absolutely a bad decision to work here

Code violations

Management with lack of experience
Property Administrator (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC4 March 2016
Worked as a PA and was expected to do most of the General Managers work while the GM was doing god only knows what on her iPad all day. It was a very toxic work environment with the GM.

When trying to get any help or answers to questions from other employees it was almost impossible as everyone seemed to be extremely overworked.
Pros

Cons
Company unwilling to address problems
