Manager, Accounting (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 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......

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

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.

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.

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.
