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.
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.
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.
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.
Favourtism to long standing employees, whether warranted or not.
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.
Good learning experience
Egocentric Leaders and Management, High Micromanagement
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.
Salary, learning and future opportunities outside the company
condescending and patronizing behavior, Inner exclusive groups with higher privilege
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
