Constant change in the organization

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There is always change in org structure with many of the senior leadership leaving. It was tough to move forward with large projects. \Co workers where great and we did do a lot of team building events

It was ok

Not sure if my review would be relevant as I believe the culture has probably changed over the years. The first year was great. Interesting projects. Left mainly due to desire to switch to contract work.

Flexible and location in Toronto was great

Unfortunately my job moved to Waterloo and commuting was not an option for me. I enjoyed the job I held and the people I worked with. I had a good variety of things to do and was kept busy.

Great ORIGINAL Co-workers

Loyalty to the company (aka old elephants) in no longer an asset, Honest opinion is not the best policy, pro-active gets you in trouble, Some Street management style is "my way or the highway" States. Outsourcing is bad, since if projects fails, the resident employee is held accountable and not the outsource company. Extreme changes in technology, either technology upgrades is waited till the last minute, or biting more than can be chewed on newer ones.

Pros

Long Hours if you don't want to go home

Cons

Long hours if you want to go home

Good for telecommuting

Develop testing strategies. Performed Competitive Analysis. Learned Competitors' Life Insurance products. Management allowed me to be self managed, so little interaction. Co-workers relied heavily on my results. Many co-workers received great accolades and rewards with my help. Hardest part and most enjoyable part of the job was finding solutions for competitor analysis

Pros

Telecommuting
