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.

Management seems to be lacking in basic management skills. No ability to inspire or manage decently. The culture is archaic- nepotistic and sexist. Don't recommend this firm unless you are looking for a paycheck.
