There is a distinction to make between working at Desjardins Downtown Montreal & Quebec City versus working in a Caisse Desjardins. They are managed differently.
I can only speak for working as a financial advisor in a Caisse Desjardins in one of the fastest growing regions in the Quebec Province.
The environement will test your limits and push you to reach new goals each year. Perfect for people looking for challenges.
Great schedule +/- 35H (no overtime permitted), great possibilities of advancement and growth within the company (they favor it).
Dental/Medical Insurance at low costs & access to a retirement fund after 3 months probation.
I would say there were constant changes (platforms, programs, changing office space, management, having to reapply on your same position, trainings & portfolios/clients) the rotation of the counselors is pretty incredible, burnouts were numerous & expectations never atteined.
But once again, every Caisse is managed differently & also every branch!
Overall great years with the people who worked there but really challenging environment, but great advantages & salary.
