Talent Acquisition Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 June 2018
I worked here on contract. Terrible place got let go for no reason I get im contract but at least give some respect. I did not get good training and thrown into piles of work expected to perform and meet targets. The VP i helped was manipulative and lazy. I wanted to learn and asked questions plus im new but gave me attitude.

Its a toxic place I would NOT recommend working there.

Terrible management and work culture
Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 March 2018
Beggars can’t be choosers and that describes the situation for most employees. More than half of staff has been turned over during the past year. It’s gotten to the point where recruiters at other firms keep asking me whats happening at DBRS?? Why are there so many applicants from your company?

Management has no clue what they’re doing and since the company was bought out by new ownership, they have limited oversight. An internal survey showed how dissatisfied people were and how low morale was but still no changes. The CEO and head of Canada are basically in retirement mode have no reason to rock the boat or make any other changes.
Pros
An entry into the finance industry if you’re desperate
Cons
Everything else is terrible

interesting job but the pay and management are downsides
VP (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 May 2014
a typical day at work: producing credit ratings

what you learned: not much in terms of knowledge, but that places like this still exist, despite poor record keeping, minimal adherence to procedures

management: non transparent, non professional, understanding

your co-workers: jaded, trying to get out

the hardest part of the job: dealing with management

the most enjoyable part of the job: variety, flexibility, non bureaucratic organization generally
