Highly structured, lots of regulatory overhead

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Fun place to work ...

Depending on who your leader is as it varies greatly depending on location. Typical day of taking in bound calls from industry related people but the workplace culture can be toxic especially when leaders come in from head office.

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.

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,

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.

Nice Office, not a youthful atmosphere

Great time while here, however I would advise that if you prefer a work/play balance in the office that this may not be the place for you. It could be hard at times to make 'friends' in the worlplace

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.

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.
