Easy system to navigate and assist with doing your job. Good atmosphere. Great co-workers. When I worked there, you could only work from home on snow days or days you couldn’t get in. I think now you can work from home more. Great training for claim professionals. Great pension/benefits. Unlimited sick days per year with a max of 10 days per occurrence before STD kicks in which is managed by Desjardins Financial Security. Salary is okay but could be better. Bonuses as well if company meets targets. You can work an extra 50 mins for 9 days and get the 10th day off. Getting a Friday or Monday off may be hard as based on seniority.
Pros
Pension, system, flex day, training
Cons
Lack of appreciation for hard work

Desjardins company is the culprit here...Home and Auto not priced competitively...Agency level has limited product shelf for Life and Wealth....Process at head office leaves a lot to be desired....All depends on managing agent whether or not you'll feel valued
Pros
Price makes a hard sell
Cons
Sell or move on

Nothing but good memories. They really want the best for their employees. My only issue is that they favor the Quebec side more then the rest of Canada but overall its good. My low rating on management is not for the actual managers, but the ones that were co workers and the power going to their heads. But management was good in my experience
Pros
Feels like a family
Cons
Quebec is preferred

Desjardins est une grande famille. L'entreprise s'implique dans son milieu et ne peut, donc, négliger ses employés qui, eux aussi, font partie du milieu direct.Je recommande fortement cette entreprise.

The job involves being under the thumb of the person running the department. With an inflated sense of importance granted to the manager's mule, the team members are treated like slaves. Every task is timed. Horrible work and backbiting culture.
Pros
Clean washrooms
Cons
Sweatshop mentality

Travailler pour Desjardins, c'est travailler pour une banque qui vous brisera. Entre les descriptions de t√Ęches incompl√®tes (√™tre pris en tant que conseiller t√©l√©phonique n'est qu'une excuse pour vendre le plus de cartes VISA) et l'environnement de travail toxique (tout, TOUT est comptabilis√©, m√™me vos pauses pipi) et s'ils ont acc√®s √† une statistique ou quota quelconque, ils vont ABSOLUMENT l'utiliser contre vous. La paye est bonne mais c'est vraiment temporaire, Desjardins a √©t√© ma pire exp√©rience de travail en dix ans.

Entrée au travail à 13 hre et la fin à 21 hreau début je faisais de la sollicitation par téléphone durant 6 ans et par la suite je vérifiez les ventes de mes compagnons de ventes, je m'assurais que les normes de Desjardins étaient faits selon les normes de la Cie, j'aimais ce travail, parce que souvent, je récupérais les ventes plus ou moins fermes. Mes compagnons de travail appréciaient mes performances.

Excellent employeur qui embrasse le style coopératif dans le travail et la gestion. Les gens d'ont le style de gestion est inapproprié se font offrir un poste sans gestion ou un "package". L'entreprise prend le pouls de la satisfaction employé chaque semaine. Un des meilleur employeur au Canada.
Pros
Le talent est récompensé
Cons
Grosse machine parfois lente

The company is in search of an identity. They set the bar so high when I was hired. They dazzled us with promises and advantages. In the end it was only a customer service job like every other. Don't get me wrong the pay is decent. But the management is a place for weasels to get promoted. If you're good at repeating the opinion of your supervisor, you're all set. The social advantages that they promise all come with super strict conditions, do your homework before claiming stuff, it all comes with a backslap (cant go into details for confidentiality). Bottom line : if this is gonna be your life job, you might find what you're looking for, if you're only looking for a part-time job as a student, trust me this is not the place. Like one of my colleagues once said "they pay you enough for you to not quit, but barely for you to like it"
Pros
Clear schedule
Cons
Management hypocrisy

Desjardins is a good company. My agent/owner was absent, disconnected, disinterested in the input and ideas of her staff, was a terrible example to her staff, provided no support or training/development opportunities, didn't keep her word when it came to advancement opportunities, did not represent Desjardins in a favourable light. Other agents are fantastic but this one did not work out for me.
Pros
Local employer
Cons
Inconsistent one agency to the next
