Auto Underwriter (Current Employee) –  Aurora, ON23 August 2018
A typical office job, great managers, great support. The only thing I can make a remark on is salary, its slow moving and takes time to get to something that matches the industry

Good company
Actuarial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON8 August 2018
Good company. Management is very good and cares about staff. However they are on the cheap side regarding benefits. Staff is friendly however there is a fair bit of competition for promotions which I found led to back-stabbing.

Conseiller, Service à la clientèle (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC30 April 2018
I grew up with Desjardins, so I'm a bit biased. It was a really good company to work for. At first I was happy with the salary offered, but when I got there for my first day I got to know awesome people that gradually became more than just formal coworkers. That means going to work was fun. Management was in on it too to a certain degree. It's not to say that no work gets done. In fact, the team was setup with individuals within it that would challenge one another. There were incentives.

Great company to work for
Regulatory and Underwriting Accountant (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON24 November 2017
We had great management and excellent environment in this finance department.
Directors and CEOs seeked employees views and opinions. Once a month they would have breakfast with random employees and get their input on things.
Pros
Flexible hours, great salary and bonus

Used to be a great company...
Bilingual Auto/Home insurance sales agent (Former Employee) –  Gloucester, ON15 August 2017
Used to be a fun respectable company to work for, however recent management has slowly stripped away all the perks of the job. Used to be a place where you'd show up to work and actually enjoy being there, it did not have that call centre feel to it and the culture was great. It only took but a few from upper management to swiftly bring in change, change which resulted in less chance for bonuses, less chance to move up, less chance for true opportunity unless you are OK with taking on more responsibility with little to no proper compensation in return.

The company is very driven to ensure their employees are not compensated for roles which are deemed higher in nature within the Insurance world, instead they praise and promote them as Lateral moves.

No different than any other run of the mill call centre. Thus Workplace culture is non existent.

When it comes to employee engagement, incompetence runs rampant within the management team.

Worst part of the job is meeting or exceeding your sales targets and not qualifying for a bonus because customer's did not give you a score of 9/10 out of 10. Or because you did not receive enough customer surveys for the month.

When Management pushes their employees to read the book "Who Moved my Cheese" you have an understanding of how they run the show. Sit down shut up do your job don't ask questions don't complain it is what it is be happy to have a job.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list

too micromanaged and cliquey
Litigation Advisor (Former Employee) –  mississauga, ON24 May 2017
Management will either like you or don't. Desjardins is a good company overall, which does well. Unfortunately the workplace culture was negative and almost seemed to be that a bit internal based. I was however able to create positive moral in my own department where I initiated an outreach program with the heart and stroke to raise money for that organization and rallied a group of us to participate as a unit and to have some fun while doing so. Unfortunately they don't allow you to learn if they don't want you to learn which is to bad. My true capabilities were not allowed to shine at this company and felt I was being held back tremendously.
Pros
nothing
Cons
micromanaged, poor training and career growth- favorites
