Good place to learn

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A good place to learn and grow, but at times very long working hours. Industry-standard systems and support, good internal mobility and career growth.

Supportive team mates. Very low paying job compared to the job responsibilities

Good for a start.Managers are supportive when they have not been stressed out themselves.The job title says customer service to justify the very low pay, but you do a whole lot more than the typical customer service/call center duties. It's an insane amount of financial services work load that goes on here, you just aren't in a "brick and mortar store front". There is no clear path if you are looking to change teams and apply to internal roles. There's some internal bureaucracy when looking to leave the team. The work environment goes beyond fast paced and generally very stressful and leaves you drained at the end of your shift. They try to poach you to take the FINRA examination, but the salary for the added stress is almost nothing compared to the industry.

Pros

Supportive team mates willing to help you be a better version of yourself, Managers are supportive when they have not been stressed out, The customer service department is at least new immigrant friendly when hiring new intakes

Cons

Other departments look down on you, Archaic processes that make your job even more stressful, The pay is very very low compared to the kind of job required of you, micromanaging

Could be improved.

As a facilities coordinator, if you don’t mind doing your job as well as most of everyone else’s job then you will like it. This job is basically being the pack-mule of the company. You get emails from other employees complaining that there are crumbs on their desk and requesting you to clean it. You’re responsible for stocking all the coffee stations. You need to respond to emails promptly, cover the receptionist on their lunch break, and set up meeting rooms all simultaneously. My boundary was reached when they were demanding me to do the Technology department’s job duties. As I was not being paid accordingly to do such tasks nor were they even my responsibility. When I mentioned this to upper management, they simply didn’t care.

Good culture, good people

I love the culture here. I feel like there are a lot of talented people and I can learn a lot from them. Respect, equality and diversity is being practiced, not just a slogan. Managers a few ranks over are still very modest and approachable, which I didn't find in the companies I previously worked for.

Pros

- Fair pay - Culture - Colleagues

Cons

- Lots of red tape due to regulation - Workload

Poor Management

Bad management, a lot of nepotism a d favouritism. If you’re not white, you won’t get ahead. Poor leadership, some staff not qualified to even open a door, but still there as they play the kissing-up game.

Pros

Location, downtown core

Cons

Management, excessive overtime

Great Culture

I love working here. There is great culture, work-life balance and lots of learning opportunities. This is a great place to start your career as a software developer. The work does get boring and monotonous depending on what team you are on and what part of the codebase you work on.

Pros

Rrsp, work-life balance, learning opportunities

Cons

Monolithic codebase

Do not recommend

Terrible place to work, stay away. Too much red-tape. Very poor culture. For them it's not about getting work done. It's all about shirking responsibilities.

The people are the best part

I had a lovely internship experience thanks to my supportive team and attentive Campus HR Team. We had fun activities like go-karting, valentines day social, tech talks, Tech Expo and Escape room. I got to work with a global team.
