nice office, company culture great too.
Legal Executive Assistant (temp) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, Ontario23 August 2018
Although it was on a contract basis to update the contracts that were approved, i did them all in less than 6 weeks. The VP is very nice to work for. It is fast paced environment and the salary is good. Wanted to work full time but the person on sick leave that I was replacing came back to work. Your need to watch your back with your co-workers. Not very friendly and unhelpful. It's a great location, just outside of union station. Pretty flexible and generous wages. Overall it's a good employer to work for, but most people are on contract so there is a lot of turnover. I would recommend this employer to everyone, if you can get a job there. Competition is fierce and they use abbreviations to describe a anything which makes it hard to know what they are talking about when you have just started to work there. The culture is very corporate and have to dress in high fashion and expensive clothing.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
back stabbing

Company had one of the best benefits in the industry. I was very happy with the finance team as the executives were always open to suggestions and willing to implement improvements. I was able to contribute my skills in the different functions.

Interac is fast-paced, filled with intelligent, hard-working people who also like to have a lot of fun
Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 January 2018
Everyone works together to achieve monumental goals. A lot of intelligent people who are committed to the organization.

Overall, great people and culture, rewarding work, a lot of passion, and both cross departmental and lateral growth opportunities are available to you. I genuinely love coming to work and seeing my colleagues everyday.
Pros
Great location and amazing benefits (especially if you have a family).
Cons
Always changing, this is a good thing for most people but can create uncertainty at times, if you don’t work well in a constantly changing environment then this isn’t the place for you.

A Great Stepping Stone
Specialist (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 January 2017
Interac is a great place to start your career. The downtown office location was very close to Union Station and convenient for any employee commuting in and out of the city every day. Interac treats its employees very well by providing a great compensation and benefits package and I was able to learn a lot in my time there. They also have many social events throughout the year for all staff which is a great way to meet people from other teams and departments across the organization. As an organization, they are moving in the right direction.

Managers could benefit from specific management training and learning how to be better leaders. Many people (including managers) have been working there for a long time and as a result, ideas do not necessarily get equal consideration. Lastly, because it is a smaller organization there is very little room for advancement.

Actions for Management :
More accountability needs to be placed on managers at all levels. Engagement and collaboration did get better as time went on however more emphasis at the executive is needed to make this a priority.

good learning
Project Coordinator/Project Lead (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 March 2015
The attitude of some people is not very professional. Very immature organization. But the technicality can be seen in co workers and the hardest part is to convince the senior executives (few)to do get job done.
