Worst Culture
Director, Finance (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 February 2019
Don't work here. The culture is awful and the politics of a 100+ year old company shine through. There's no saving this culture.\

You probably won't get paid as well anywhere else, but it's not worth your sanity.

potential if you belong to right clique
Manager, Accounting (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 January 2019
Management doesn't communicate well and constantly in a mindset of hurry up and wait, frustrating to be sitting in the office on a Friday night waiting for feedback that they have been sitting on for 2 weeks and now we have to hope we have enough time to actually check final revisions before we release......
Pros
has potential and pays decently
Cons
long hours, poor management and communication

Office culture is very tough and management is quite strict. Great learning environment and there's a lot of potential for growth within the company. No work-life balance.

Very bad work culture & strict management
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 July 2018
CONS:
- Management is very strict and prefers micro managing
- Working hours are at least 10 hours a day and they do not encourage any flexibility
- Project managers are very demanding and are rude most of the time.
- Leadership takes advantage of their power and at times they bully their staff. If you complain to HR than they do nothing about it.
- Employees have to get use to lots of work pressure to survive


PROS:
- Good Christmas parties
- Pay rate is slightly above the market

Corporate
Accountant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON12 June 2018
Culture was very serious and corporate. People were nice but focused on working and not a lot of importance was placed on employee satisfaction. No mingling outside of work.

Chaotic and disorganized
IT Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 March 2018
Everyone is a "manager", so no such thing as overtime.

Upper management changes direction often, and there is much turn-over at the Director level out of frustration.

The culture is highly political, and you are expected to shut up and hold the bag in front of the big fan. You are a commodity, there is _NO_ work/life balance, and "performed as expected" is the highest you can expect to get on a review.

Pretty good benefits though...
Pros
Outsourced IT, good benefits
Cons
Outsourced IT, lack of leadership, apathy

Fast paced, contrarian thinking, respected organization.
Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 March 2017
Within the time I worked for the company, I experienced the remarkable growth of the organization on a global scale. The talented team at Brookfield are thought leaders, offering a contrarian way of thinking and are respected industry leaders. I was privileged to work with many groups during my time with the company and have the utmost respect for the organization and the people who work there.

Quiet and very professional work environment
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 May 2012
Typical day (during quarter end): on the phone with various investment teams; aggregate the performance measures from each investment team in order to prepare for the quarterly reports; review and update case study info for each fund investments, etc
Hardest part of the job: long over time hours
The most enjoyable part: if you want to get experience from a highly professional and reputable company in Canada, this is the place to work for.
