Management provides little support and favoritism plays a big role in this company. Hence room for growth is limited unless you know how to lick a..
Within the department there are some good people. Most people appear friendly, but be careful as lot of nonsense politics. Stay away from Echelon Insurance unless desperate.

Everyone at this company is useless. There is nobody to help you and the people are not friendly. Do not apply to this company unless you are very desperate. Stay away from Echelon Insurance is the best advice I can give anyone.

A place where the goals and objectives fail to match up with the working environment and management provided. Little to no support/leadership provided from management or HR in conducting your tasks and a clear sense of favouritism is apparent in each department. Not a place that motivates you to grow as an employee

Echelon n'embrasse pas la diversité pour l'innovation et la croissance et ils ne laissent pas la place d’inspirer confiance. Très difficile d'avancer au sein de l'entreprise. Aucune motivation. Aucune engagement, aucune flux d'informations, aucune aide, aucune innovation, concurrence malsaine, aucune collaboration, aucune coopération ou reconnaissance de la part de la direction.

Echelon does not embrace diversity for innovation and growth and they leave no room for trust. Very difficult to advance within the company. No motivation. No commitment, no flow of information, no help, no innovation, unhealthy competition, no collaboration, no cooperation or recognition from management.
Pros
Le Carrefour Laval est juste en face du bureaux. Mall is in front of building
Cons
Beaucoup de bavardage, système de gestion des réclamations sont vieux et toujours bogué, Lots of gossip and claims systems are old and always bugging.

Great place to work, with nice people. Middle-management is excellent; supportive, not micro-managing, and allowing people room to grow and learn and take responsibility. On the negative: it's a high-pace environment, with lots of competing priorities, and the IT department is understaffed.
Pros
Nice people
Cons

I enjoyed working here, although my tasks were very menial. I don't prefer data-entry, so it was not the most fun. However, the environment is fantastic and so are the people. Another job (more focus on clerical or reception work, or assisting in departs I have greater interest in) would have been a much better fit for me.

Projects have an unrealistic timeline, with no support or proper business involvement they expect to do magic.

Upper management has very little respect for employees, all they care about is their own bonus.


They expect employees to put in extra time and over time with no overtime pay. If employees don't agree to work they are treated unfairly and consider not a team player
Pros
nice coworkers and team
Cons
Upper management in Echelon is just unrealistic and act out of emotions rather using their brain

I really enjoyed Echelon General Insurance and wanted to stay there. Unfortunately, at the time they were only able to offer me a renewed contract and I was looking for full time employment with benefits. I would work there again!!
