Amazing benefits

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
the benefits are amazing and people are very nice. it just can be quite stressful during certain financial seasons. during those seasons there can be a lot of micro management as well as some coworkers having very odd competitions amongst each other. overall really great :)

Leadership and peers.

I highly recommend working in this company. They are well managed and they drive diversity. Everyone is respectful and professional and they do not discriminate.


Managers really care about the well being of their people and they encourage professional growth.


A lot of “drop what you’re doing and work on this” requests from senior leadership.

Reputable company in the financial services industry.

New leadership has resulted in culture change. Very fast-paced sales environment with some unrealistic expectations on work load volume. Hard to establish partnerships as retention of staff is low.


Great benefits


Staff retention is low in sales

Typical financial company

Management ok. Pay is low. Career progression opportunities are not much for internal employees. They would rather hire externals and pay them more than pay the existing staff better.

Exceptional local leaders

The investment team in Montreal was comprised of exceptional executives. Humane approach, fun environment, always striving to excel. They also encouraged you to learn and try new tasks.

Nice place to work

i worked at Winnipeg, MB for about 6 months. it's a very fast-paced working environment and there are certain expectations you need to meet in a day.

Good company with average salary

Good organization if you're in a client facing roles/teams. Stressful if you're in a back office / support teams.IT culture is all about outsourcing with lots of contractors working on-site and offshore.

Don't get stuck here!

Not a bad place to start a career, however this is not a place you want to spend your time in! Move as soon as possible, other employers will value your time and pay you a fair wage.

Learned a lot about the financial industry...

The trainers were great. I had a great manager as well. The job was stressful at times. I was glad that I was able to learn a lot. At times the work process could have been different. Be prepared to deal with many clients, they can be angry at times.

Friendly employees n quiet work environment

Very organized on welcoming new employees however too much work loads. Training was good. System wise is good. Should have a partner buddy to ask questions. The company management was restructuring when I’m on bored. I’m on my difficult point on my personal life when I was hired when my mom’s died. Very supportive company


All worked are system recorded

A lot of overtime

Involves A LOT OF overtime!! Sometimes had to work for 10 hours straight with no weekends, not sure if it's because of busy cycle. Pay is good tho. Seniors are nice.

hectic and supervisors constantly watching and grading your performance.

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


free lunches, quarterly parties


felt like a prisoner in the Russian gulag, constantly being watched by supervisors and staff from other areas on the floor

Great experience

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.

Poor management

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.

Mackenzie has a good management

As mentioned earlier Mackenzie is a fast pace environment with so much more but little pay. My original manager is nice but was replaced by young and ambitious one. Thanks.

Excellent culture

I really enjoyed working at Mackenzie ... in three locations Toronto Vancouver in Montreal. It was a very nurturing environment everyone worked together as a team and we had a lot of support from management. We were always being challenged with constant change and product innovation.

Undergoing massive change

They have hired management from TD and CIBC to lead a culture change at the company to allow it to compete with the Big Schedule A banks. This has caused major job losses and a lot of new faces to appear in the company.


Located in downtown


Walk up to the queen street area from Union station
