Reporting Analyst and Billing Administrator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 February 2018
It was actually a mix of productive and people oriented approach but more likely towards productivity. I do understand it should be like that in security management industry. My group lead and manager were extremely helpful in all aspects of work life as long as quality remains the same.

Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 October 2017
I enjoyed working with this company for the most part however there was slot of politics between senior members of the staff and middle management. With a proprietary system in place, it was not easy to adapt it to run the plans we administered. It had been designed to run security business and adjusted to attempt to administer pension plans and registered plans. The person I reported directly to was great and her background was much the same as mine so it was nice to work together.
I worked at computershare aka ricepoint for an overall 3 months. The location was great and our cafeteria was amazingly clean and accessible it was a really wonderful environment to work in. The position that I was in was terrible. ( Call center ) Management was horrible and the job security is horrible.
This was a fun workplace, the atmosphere among employees was great. The pay however was ridiculously low for a company in the securities industry. Also, the culture within management is such that there is an IN group, and so, it is difficult to advance in spite of being talented.
Transfers (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 February 2016
Computershare work environment is acceptable as people make it entertaining and enjoyable. Management is pretty understanding of people's lives outside of work. The amount of work is acceptable but not for the compensation received.
My experience with Computershare was demanding, and 247 for over 15 years straight
Senior programmer Analysr (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 December 2015
Computershare is a global company with Australia parent. There is a wide scope of talent within this company. My particular area of expertise was a unique system specifically designed and maintained to satisfy the ever evolving Mortgage Backed Securities System. The Custodial record keeping system, vault details of certified Mortgages to be Pooled and daily transmissions to CMHC and participating Insurers is very specific. Receipt of all Participants (the banks) for the most part must ensure that the components of all pool were complete as per CMHC. Monthly payments of all principal, penalties, adjustments and redemptions for all security holders were calculated and distributed to security holders as per payment method desired (cheque, direct deposit or EFT). All financial reporting and distribution reports generated and some posted for Interested parties on a secured website. All billing of services provided were invoiced based upon services provided. These were in turn used to perform budget allocations.
I really liked my job and the fine turning required many times with little advance notice.
