Great Canadian Organization

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The outcome of one’s experience within the company is completely dependent on the management of the area/office/department. There are some fantastic leaders within the organization and some very toxic individuals. That said, to be fair, they do a good job of extracting bad apples. I would encourage anyone to join the organization if they are looking for long term employment where they can build lasting relationships.

Pros

Great benefits, some paid lunches, good people

Great People and Great Environment

I work at an Insurance Agent’s office which in my opinion would be the way to go. At my particular Agent’s office, it feels like we are all a family. We are very collaborative and constantly helping one another out without feeling like I’m competing against my peers. We have fun, in-office promos that aim to give some extra incentives for high performance, and we always celebrate each of our successes. My Agent is also very relaxed about needing time off and really strives for a great work/life balance. To be honest, my Agent feels more like a coworker or work friend than a boss as they are very encouraging and easy to approach. I find most clients are kind and fun to talk to and any of the “higher ups” in the company I’ve spoken to are very kind and there to help you succeed. The underwriting department and billing department are easy to work with when needed and you begin to form bonds with them over time as well as your immediate coworkers. The only reason I docked a star from the job culture rating is that there are some other Agent’s nearby that are a bit rude and uptight, but as I said, for the most part each person I’ve spoken to is great.

Training is long needs to focus on people that are more a visual than theory

mixed feelings to be honest culture is good but as usual depends on the manager. Feels like they say one thing and do another. work life balance is important to the company so they say but in reality its the opposite

Good place to work

Good place to work, good support from manager and coworkers, a lot of opportunity for advancement, you can apply for a lot of jobs internally, pay is a little bit low

Toxic environment

A horrible environment, repetitive tasks with no sense of accomplishment and a nonstop cycle of new claims. Employees are regularly asked for feedback which is then ignored. The department is so conservative and hostile to new ideas, and management treats their employees with total disregard. Expect to be micromanaged in every single thing you do, every second of the day. The salary and benefits might seem appealing at first, but they never mention all of the unpaid overtime you will be forced to do. There is no work-life balance at all, and you are expected to work almost all of the statutory holidays as well as evenings and weekends. Your schedule is set up without your consent and they count every minute of your day and how you spend it. Managers have no respect for their employees and no problem overworking them until they quit or end up on disability leave. Customers and coworkers can treat you horribly and management just laughs it off. Favoritism and nepotism are the only ways to get beyond the advisor position, but there are so many layers that most people quit after a year or so. The culture is so toxic with its forced positivity, everyone is unhappy but is too afraid to say anything for fear of being fired. Older employees are overlooked and undervalued, and the company does not value loyalty at all.

Good Benefits and career advancement

Good benefits with a defined benefit pension. Career advancement to management if you fit the mold. Managers have little understanding of day-to-day handling of claims and therefore cannot relate to staff's extreme workload stressors.

Very stressful

Ppl call in all the time ,short staffed, hight staff rotation (but very,very slow to replace the potions). Very stressful, you get yelled at and harassed by the members. You advise them to management but nothing gets done. Your just a number to them!

Pros

Benefits, retirement plan, free banking perks

Cons

Stressful, Poor management

Environnement de travail humain

Mes 5 mois de travail chez Desjardins ont été très bien. Travail collaboratif, respectueux et reconnaissant. Pour le poste pour lequel j'ai appliqué, possibilités d'avancement étriqués et peu intéressants considérant mes grades universitaires.
