They mention occasional overtime in the contract however expect to be doing 45 to 50 hours a week. Management does not give much attention to mental health of employees.

Good place to start your career, however, if you are experienced then it's advisable that do not apply at Citco. There's no work life balance and many times upper management is completely unaware about the situation on the floor. Managers and VP are strongly knitted and hardly listen to the employees and often tries to resolve the matters by themselves which results in constant shifting from one team to another. Expect to work 48+ hours a week which could be a big issue if you are not living in downtown. There's very little growth opportunity and a lot of times the right people do not get promoted due to favourism. The work and salary is not very competitive when compared to the the competitors. If you like to party hard then this could be a good place though as they have quarterly parties with free booze. The parties are pretty wild. Also, they provide free beer after 5, and unlimited supply of fizzy drinks and juices.

If you have a Yes Sir attitude, then you may have a better prospect to get promoted to senior or supervisor position. The managers, VP and the upper management only cares about their year end bonus even if it means great discomfort to the people working below them. A lot of times, management will promise promotions but it never happens and they promote their favourites or hire externally which greatly affects the morale. I have seen 3 cases with in a year where people left simply because they were promised a position and at the last moment someone else was promoted or Hired. Teams issues are never heard and communication never reaches the upper management.

The culture is young and relaxed. Citco is good for starting off your career. There is free breakfast and dessert every month along with some other perks.

Citco has a high turn over rate due to company mismanagement and poor team management. They continue to promote people based on technical skills and not leadership skills. Typical work week is 50+ Hours and most people do not take breaks. Upper management knows this and does nothing to change the culture or create positive change.
Pros
good benefits, good number of vacation days
Cons
no breaks, long hours, no career advancement

Working at Citco has been an eyeopening experience for me as I entered the business world. Although working here has been great and working with the team has been an amazing and fun experience, the unfortunate fact that the salary is so pathetic makes this company a terrible place to work for.
Pros
Great work/life balance
Cons
Terrible salary

- No training program as the head trainer quit
- Have to rely on co workers to train you which they are not experienced in doing so.

- Lack of management skills (reason for very high turnover rate)

- People working there for 4-5 years, still in the same position

- Currently short staffed because of such high turnover and lack of hirings which results in you taking on other funds outside of your team

- Workload is at 150% because of employee shortages.
Pros
free beer after 5pm, good benefits package
Cons
long hours/life-work balance is lacking/chances of promotion are slim

I worked here for 2 years. Overall less than positive experience. The benefits and salary are competitive. The work is can be tedious or monotonous. Very process driven and segregated. Regular follow ups and performance evaluations. All tasks well done can go out the window in light of small mistakes. All work is very monitored. During busy times can be expected to work overtime. Very young management, can be a good and bad thing. Must play politics to advance. Little job security, can be put on probation or asked to leave any time (happened to 6 co workers while i was there). Good for getting your foot in the door, NOT a long term career choice.
Pros
free beers, good benefits
Cons
management, too much surveillance

Very busy office in Toronto offers a great employment for inexperienced and new workers at a low salary. There is opportunity for growth but Salary increases are difficult to obtain. Great for learning and starting out but can't stay there more than 3 years.

Citco Canada, in general, is a great company.

Great benefits. Great pay. Great people.

Just certain divisions have terrible management teams with little concern for the longevity of the careers of their subordinates.
Pros
Free drinks
Cons
Occasional long hours (until Midnight)

Good working environment, have multiple task everyday. Free beer after 5 o'clock and free beverage, coffee, tea, milk all day long. Company located in waterfront Halifax, the heart of Nova Scotia. Close to casino so that you can "try your luck to enjoy" the free parking.
Great benefit to the employees such as insurance and holidays.
