Overall not too bad. Depends on the Management style
Quote & Renewal Technician (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 March 2018
Depending on the department you find yourself in it can be a very pleasant environment .
My experience has been a combined one. Very pleasant for the first few years .However there has been too much restructuring and the stability of job security has waned over the past few years

Work load is manageable , but the management style leaves a lot to be desired .
High turnover in some areas.

Nice place
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Canada22 March 2018
This place has a union that protects the workers in many ways. They have a thick French background and with that comes a strong culture. When coming here bring a translation book.
Pros
Strong culture.

Pay is capped

autonomie
Agent en assurances des particuliers (Current Employee) –  Quebec City, QC7 March 2018
Une journée typique serait difficile à décrire car les journées se suivent me ne se ressemblent point. Mon travail est de répondre aux besoins des clients au niveau des assurances de dommages. Puisque j'effectue mon travail dans différents point de service ( deux caisses Desjardins) j'ai également comme devoir de développer le réseau du référencement au niveau des assurances avec les employés des caisses. Plusieurs coaching et présentations font donc parti de mon quotidien afin de m'assurer d'une bonne chimie et d'une bonne participation de mes collègues.

Acquisitions :
* professionnalisme
* autonomie
* gestion de priorités
* gestion de problème
* gestion du temps
* animation et préparation de présentations
* contenu de l'assurance de dommages
Pros
avantages sociaux
Cons
pression

High pace environment
Business Development Analyst (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON7 March 2018
working at Desjardin independent network meant that you were responsible for various tasks and those that had to be done with relatively quick speed. But the work was interesting so time management was crucial as to not get too invested into one project.

Good company, Quebec Centric
Director (Current Employee) –  Aurora, ON13 February 2018
Good company to work for, but at a certain level, you essentially need to speak french and work in part in Quebec. As Desjardins continues to grow outside Quebec I hope they become more national.
Pros
Nice people
Cons
cost cutting to the point of poor customer service

Très piètre management
Directeur principal (Former Employee) –  Montréal-Ouest, QC4 February 2018
Après plusieurs années au sein du mouvement Desjardins, j'ai constaté une gestion du personnel et surtout une RH plus que limite...
Si les postes de caissiers et de Directeurs ( N7 max. ) sont accessibles à tous, en revanche, les postes d'encadrement supérieurs les mieux considérés et les mieux rémunérés sont encore destinés aux québécois. Cela est due en grande partie au système de caisses autonomes qui laisse aux petits chefs des décisions de recrutement et de RH très au dessus de ce qui devrait être admissible.
Beaucoup de "copinage" et de cloisonnement. Peu de place au respect de l'initiative personnel et à la reconnaissance.
Même l'évolution par l'acquisition de nouveaux diplôme ( MBA par exemple ) n'est pas valorisé, puisqu'il faut prendre de ses congés et de sa paie pour y avoir droit...
Bref, décevant.
Passez votre chemin si possible
Pros
Pas grand choses par rapport aux autres banques
Cons
Xénophobe, déstructuré, RH souvent inexistantes.

Senior Client Relationship Manager GRS (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB29 January 2018
I liked the organization due to their long history in Canada and the fact that they are a credit union and not an organization that is listed on the stock exchange.

Very productive and fun place to work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON26 January 2018
A typical day at work included:
- maintaining registers, managing email correspondences, attending to Client queries, liaising with Agents, managing office mail and courier including mass mailers, maintaining catalog of forms from MGAs

The job helped me gain confidence in communication at different levels in corporate sector. Also it improved by event organisation skills.

The management was very cooperative and supportive

Workplace Culture is very conducive.

Hardest Part of the job was when I have to manage tasks of my colleagues along with my own tasks when they are away

Enjoyable Part of the job was in maintaining various registers.
