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

High performing environment with micro aggressive culture
The organization has great resources to work with and they hire extremely top talent. The only issue is there is a clear favoritism to people with no ethnically backgrounds.

They have worked pretty hard to have great policies and compensation but there is a lot work to be done in shaping a culture that promotes a healthier environment for work.
Pros
Salary, learning and future opportunities outside the company
Cons
condescending and patronizing behavior, Inner exclusive groups with higher privilege

Feeback as employee
Its a great company to work for and be with. They spend a good amount of training, team building and re structuring

Working within IT is also a great learning curve over the 3 years I spend with CPPIB. They were inclusive about incorporating my experiences from Infosys, Manulife and RBC and was able to leverage off many projects

Fine
They have a good work life balance. I liked that. They have a good culture for juniors. There were a lot of opportunities to learn from others and to teach others.
