My overall work experience was great. I was allowed to work independently which showed a level of trust. There was dynamic communication so all involved in the project were onboard with what each player was doing.

senior managers and brokers were rude. Advancement is based on how well you befriend your boss. Worse type of atmosphere to work in. I wouldn't recommend working there

I once worked from 9 am to 10 pm (13 hours, which is the legal limit according to Ontario labour laws, obviously unpaid and no time off in lieu) on a Friday evening before a long weekend in order to get an accrual done for month end reporting that I received late in the day. The next business day, instead of any appreciation, I get an email saying, I quote, "A lot of time spent on X resulted in no change really to the accrual from Friday...You need to manage your time better...I am not sure you understand the importance of month end/quarter end. You advised you worked on X until 10:00 Friday. Thank you. But A, B, and I stay up until 1:00 am and beyond usually the last three day of the month and for the first and second day of the new month to ensure things get completed by the due date...you will need to improve."

First, this is against labour laws as an employer is required to give 8 hours off after 13 consecutive hours at work in a 24 hour period (ironic a insurance brokerage would put itself in a position of legal liability by putting in writing that they are breaking the law). Secondly, the person is exaggerating and/or lying because there were VERY FEW days where anyone worked until 1 am. On that day I was the last person to leave (well after they have left) and this did not happen most month ends. Third, if someone was taking month end lightly, why would they work until 10 pm unpaid overtime?


This is just one of many such incidents. For a company to claim that they have to continuously work until 1 am the last 3 days before month end means either it is inefficient

Would work a typical 9-5 day, followed fairly standard routines but would occasionally be brought on to help in different departments. This helped to expand my knowledge of other fields that I previously was not privy to.

Good exposure to contacts in the industry and large-scale clients and ability to work on large risks. Job can become repetitive over-time however, but the company offers good ability to transition into new job functions

A typical day does not always reflect what’s listed in the original job description - often involves a mixture of routine tasks and unexpected requests and occurrences.

I've learned to deal with very difficulty personalities within the office and outside.


Managers work very hard to reduce stress in the workplace by creating a healthy a healthy environment - departmental lunches and other activities for team building.



When staff are rude, impatient, unreasonable, or downright explosive.


To get noticed for all the amazing, crucial work done by myself or the team.
Pros
team building exercises
Cons
rude, impatient, unreasonable, or downright explosive staff

They keep pushing senior employees out and create so much more work for the ones left behind, who aren't experienced enough to handle the accounts.

Also, the pay isn't great. A lot of my fellow employees have left and found better paying jobs elsewhere.
Pros
I get a paycheck and benefits
Cons
Long hours and unappreciative managers
