hectic and supervisors constantly watching and grading your performance.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

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.

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.

Focused and clear vision of long term goals

Workplace culture is relaxed and good collaboration among the staff. Management are supportive but very goal driven. Hours are flexible although you are expected to be present during core hours. Company has a clear vision and the financial means to back their ambitious targets.

Wholesalers

Wholesalers operate with impunity. They treat their insides and coordinators terribly. They have a "type" they like to hire and rarely deviates. No room for growth.

Amazing management team

Even though, I didn't have work/life balance when i worked at Mackenzie, i really enjoyed working with the management team. They have open door policy and very open to any question you may have. Salary is low compared to market rate and didn't get paid overtime. Ended up doing lot of extra hours without getting paid.

It was mediocre

You are expected to work long hours, which is fine but they all went unrewarded. Management and colleagues were mediocre, it is not somewhere I would go back to,

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.

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.

Winning Culture

Management really guides you and helps you grow but don't get me wrong you have to show the initiative. Co Workers and work life balance is good. Great location as well right in the heart of downtown.

Nice workplace but challenging

Challenging to gain information from peers. Unstable processes. Friendly management, awful worklife balance. Lessons learned, one needs to be more firm and express their knowledge and skills to be valued as a team player.

Constant flux

Change of 3 CEO in 8 years cause restructuring and unstability. Each new CEO changes management and IT department constantly changes responsibility and procedures.
