Mackenzie has a good management

Indeed featured review

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.

Highly structured, lots of regulatory overhead

Due to being an internal IT organization within a group of financial institutions, it is rightfully a highly regulated environment. The result is that as an infrastructure specialist, you will find yourself spending well over 60% of your time satisfying change and incident documentation requirements... not necessarily doing technology work which could improve internal or external services. This is probably true of any organization within a regulated industry; but it is important to keep in mind when you are seeking a career path.

Mackenzie has the right business environment

Mackenzie is a wonderful company that fosters the growth of individuals through inclusiveness and innovation. Although segmented by different divisions within the company, every sector cooperates together to provide support for one another and to efficiently execute their tasks for the greater benefit of the company.

Good place to work. Great people and good work life balance.

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.

Pros

Great people and good work life balance

Cons

Not many opportunity to advance and grow, doing what I love

N.A

Great people to work with. However the management fails to see value in the right individuals. Workplace culture varies depending on the team/department you work for. Per my experience, the workplace culture for the teams that I worked for were very bureaucratic and rigid, allowed minimal empowerment & support.

Great work experience. Productive & lots of fun with my colleagues at work.

I have learned many work experiences from the company. I've been grateful to be an employee of this prestigious company. I started as a contract employee. After a year the company gave me a chance to be a full time permanent position as fund accountant. It will always be in my heart & mind all the good memories of being a part of this company.

Pros

Career improvement

Cons

Short of staff

Good company and management

This is an overall good company, good pay and good management. However it is a smaller company therefore not a lot of opportunities for advancement. Work/life balance in Fund Accounting is almost non-existent but that's true for almost all companies in the industry.

Great contract job

I took this job as a 6 month contract. The staff were very friendly and I got all kinds of support that I needed to be successful. I was offered to work overtime and I took the offer, and made good money. Most importantly, my experience in Mackenzie built the bridge to my next career opportunities.
