Not as inclusive as they say

The work culture is old fashion and punitive. Depending on your role there is a huge concern of being de-skilled. Pay and benefits are generous and bonus is quite good. However, if you leave the company you might not be as competitive with your peers in the job market. The work culture is not as diverse and inclusive as they like and they do not crack down on inappropriate behaviour.

Pros

Generous benefits and above industry pay

Cons

Senior managers and above get away with inappropriate behaviour, company org structure is disproportionate including mostly senior people

One of the most stressful places

The place doesn’t respect your work/personal balance .. no transparency.. disrespectful directors and management .. it is reflection of the upper management messages percolating down ..

Pros

Good money

Cons

No stability or transparency

New CTO has not clue what she is doing

Worst CTO ever met, start multiple projects in not just different but contrary directions. Dictate what she wants and barely hear what other senior staff said. Bring her buddy in, kick out good people, bring her consultant firm in, kick out existing excellent vendor.

Very Stressful Environment

This company has a weird culture. The manager who hired me was excellent. After another manager took over our team, the culture was completely changed - very stressful.

A high performing, collaberative organization with the highest integrity.

It was an honour and privilege to have had the opportunity to work at the CPPIB. It is first class organization that cares about employees and a place where what you do and how you perform matters to every Canadian.

A very Political and toxic workplace

Lot of hierarchy, people concentrate more on playing politics than doing work. Bunch of incapable employees who are taking home a lot of money and doing no work. Non deserving people holding management roles with no vision or focus.

Great salary, toxic envirinment.

There is a favouritism to employees who have been there from the beginning, warranted or not. And these employee's arrogance and high handed treatment of other staff is unparalleled. If an employee reports this treatment or objects to it, you soon find your position eliminated due to "reorganization", a favourite catch phrase of the CPPIB. This was the worst experience of my career.

Pros

Salary

Cons

Favourtism to long standing employees, whether warranted or not.

Working with time sensitive goals

The most enjoyable part of the job is working with your co-workers, learning and leveraging their strengths to achieve goals. The hardest part of the job is the occasional long hours needed to meet tight deadlines. Overall, a good learning experience for traditional corporate office operations but lacks innovation and open-mindedness due hierarchical structure that often block or limit communication channels and minimal skills in change management during rapid growth spurts.

Pros

Good learning experience

Cons

Egocentric Leaders and Management, High Micromanagement
