From where I work...
Empire Life is a big company with many different parts. I work in tiny part of IT where we keep the servers chugging along 24/7 and we do all the in-house printing. Unfortunately I don’t know about the other bits, like how work is for the programmers or the CSRs or the accounting folks. Everyone seems to work hard and there is a good company culture. The benefits are not bad, with basic health care included and profit sharing

Used to be a great place to work.
Was a great place to work up until a few years ago when employee dedication and hard-work was no longer a factor in salary and advancement. Every year got worse.

Great experience
Management was extremely supportive and training was very helpful.
The nature of the job was difficult and not made for everyone but if you are patient and handle stress well you can make it . I recommend this company to anyone looking for stability and a good work life balance .

Relaxed work
I was hired through Manpower and eventually got placed on contract with Empire Life. Great place to work with great incentives to work overtime. I would've stayed if we didnt move to Toronto.

Need more staff
It can be very stressful especially if you are bilingual. A lot to learn. I think the wages, paid sick time and vacation could be better. I like my job 60% of the time.

Don't waste your time and sanity
The job in itself is pretty simple and very doable. Doing my job and completing my tasks was actually the easy part of being in that office.
Your problem will be with management and their lack of logical reasoning and common sense. The supervisor is a complete idiot who has no clue about the products and procedures. There is favouritism in the Kingston office. And they expect you to be a yes man with no opinion of your own. There aren't many advancements opportunities as they are all given to the people in Kingston over the Montreal office.

Stressful
Sitting down for long periods of time, stressful, no gratitude, not professional. High turnover in customer service, like a revolving door.
People working there are not complemented and supported by managers. Lack of support.
Pros
People

A good place to work
Empire is a great Monday to Friday employer with good benefits and moderate salaries. They do encourage and pay for industry education. Many people spend a lot if not all of their working careers here.
Pros
Monday to Friday hours, benefits and pension.
Cons
Paid parking required

Great in some areas, not so much in others
Managers are great, helpful and want to see you succeed. But it's very clique atmosphere. You can go days without talking to anyone. Salary is horrible, very low to start.
Pros
Work life Balance
Cons

Canadian Centric Insurance Company
In business to service Canadians.
Each department head runs their shop differently.

Work culture is different in each location.

Most leadership is remote.

Organization is stable & ownership is engaged

Sinking Ship
I was recruited by a head hunter, and left a big bank to work for them, because the money was good. They lacked decent product offerings for the broker-dealer channel on wealth management. They did not provide training until a year after the job. Constant turnover. Biggest waste of my time.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list.

professional work environment
As a customer service representative, I enjoyed helped people with everyday questions and provide prompt solutions to their needs. It was a very quick-paced environment, as we were short on personnel so it was a very big work load. But the pay was great and the benefits too.
Pros
benefits
Cons
short staffed

Great Learning Experience
I had a great time working for Empire life while I was still attending university. They allowed me to extend my summer position and work from home during the school year. I was given responsibility and was rewarded for my hard work. Management was very considerate and I learned a lot.
