Productive and fun place with table tennis etc
Good place to work. Good management. Good people to work with. Easy going environment. I would highly recommend anyone to work there. Quiet area and they have a reasonable in-house cafeteria as well.

social club
more important to be liked by the right people than to do a good job.
countless hours wasted per day on walking around, socializing and gossiping.

Not as productive as could/should be.

A solid 8-4 job
nothing special about this place. It respects its workers but it is a desk job that is good for consistency and for the grind. If you are looking to get in make money and get out this is the job for you

A great place to work
It's a busy place, but that's not unusual for an insurance brokerage; the people you work with are a good team and management is open to suggestions and new ideas.
It's not a call centre, you have your own clients to deal with (plus helping out if someone is away, of course).

There are special events for staff, lots of internal job opportunities, and it's never boring!

There are new people now hired to do training in Personal and Commercial, so that will really improve things for new hires in the coming months.
Pros
Good pension and benefits, extra 2 days off every year in addition to vacation
Cons
Busy place - but that makes the day go by fast!

Revolving door
Managers have no problem firing quality staff members to bring in friends and family. There is no job security and no loyalty to good employees. They promote inexperienced people and expect them to properly manage a team
Pros
Good hours
Cons
Inexperienced managers

A job not a career
You get your paycheck, which isn't much, you get some work that are interesting, but not challenging. Definitely no room to advance, and job security isn't always a sure thing.

loved the hours of operation
A typical day at work would be taking call from service providers to know if a client is eligible for renewal on a service previously claimed. clients call to find out what they are covered for and some admin work has to be done when clients request change in plan.
