Good place to work. Great people and good work life balance. However, my department was flat and therefore not many opportunity to advance and grow, doing what I love. The hardest part of the job was the unresponsiveness of the business. The best part of the job was how fluid it was, with a small unit and with different portfolio types, the work and demands were ever changing and could be unpredictable.

There are some great and talented people. Recent changes resulted in some turnover. The market is challenging because of competition and demand for lower fees and new products.
Pros
Work/Life balance
Cons
Too many changes, need to re-focus and move on

Client Relations Representative (Former Employee) - toronto
Had one supervisor for 6 months who acted like a tin horn dictator and expected perfect customer calls. He would take you into a room and play your call with the customer and analyzed word by word. He had no people skills for the staff and went back to his other job. After he left had 4 trainee supervisors over my last 6 months there. Training was fly by the pants mentality. It's either sink or swim. I was hired with 9 other staff and after 1 year only half the staff were left, sort of like the trenches in WW1.Culture is ok as they have staff parties at work and in the evening. If you are an excellent employee they treat you like a rock star, ie quarterly rewards for outstanding performance, and if you are average they treat you like a criminal
Pros
free lunches, quarterly parties
Cons
felt like a prisoner in the Russian gulag, constantly being watched by supervisors and staff from other areas on the floor

Got to learn a lot from the more senior employees within the asset management field. The people are very willing to collaborate and advance your career.
