Management Cutting Costs and Harshly Monitoring Performance

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Employees were constantly required to work overtime on Saturdays or on weekdays. The workflow system tracks the time it takes for each account request and when you take your breaks and lunch. The managers are quite strict with when and how long you take your breaks. Employees were given a score based on their keystrokes as a percentage compared to the 'best practice', in other words the most accurate and fastest keystroke order. Computers were often too slow and the workflow system often stopped.

Pros

Christmas Party, Lunch Parties, Celebrated Retirements

Cons

Constant Overtime, Printers always broken, repetitive work, high expectation for speed and accuracy

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,

Customer oriented

I had a good time working there servicing the Financial Planners. The environment promotes excellent servicing in a cut-throat business. Being meticulous is a strong asset to have. Free tickets to Habs games are given occasionally.

Positive work environment

Standard call centre job, you will receive lots of training and support, standard benefit, salary on the lower end. Team leader will provide regular one-on-one coaching session with you to help you improve. Expect to learn a lot about different types of CRA-registered savings account.

No advancement. No competitive salaries. Bad work environment with low employee morale. Low teamwork. I found myself dragging my feet to work each day.

Supportive Management Team

Management team is very supportive and approachable. Work is always really busy for me especially because we are short staffed (manager and Senior Analyst left during the busiest time last year). The hardest part of the job is to trying to do two people's job, having to work overtime everyday and not having work-life balance. The best part of the job is the learning opportunity. Since we are short staffed, management team relies on my work a lot. Therefore, i get an opportunity to prove myself as well as work closely with the senior management team. The most enjoyable part of the job is taking new projects and leading it. The tight deadlines motivates think more efficiently and the challenge brings the best in me.

Pros

Good Benefits

Cons

Long hours

Good Company to work for

Strongly encouraged to be a self motivator who can initiate contact with clients and perform tasks at hand without regular supervision. Company offers limited areas of growth in Alberta however Toronto and Vancouver offer definite growth opportunities. Mackenzie offers their employees a comfortable and friendly work environment allowing the opportunity to have possible face to face contact with clients during events.

Pros

Regular hours, Friendly atmosphere, personal development opportunities, good benefits

Cons

limited areas for position growth in satellite offices

Good place overall

Work is subjective, depending on which team you worked with. My team was very supportive and I had a good working relationship with them. I wanted to be considered for a sales position, but they didn't have any openings so I had to look elsewhere. The vacation time at the beginning isn't the greatest but after one full year they tagged on another week for time off. Benefits when I was working there were really good; however from what I understand there were some changes after I left. I hope that the work environment is still good overall.

Pros

Tuition reimbursment, good relationship with colleagues

Cons

Work through lunches sometimes or evenings to get work done, but were recognized for hard work.
