Not the greatest place to work
Benefits Analyst (Current Employee) –  Don Mills, Toronto14 August 2018
The turn over is high, however based on the management and salary it is understandable. Based on the high turn over, the job can be stressful because your workload increases, which in turn causes long working hours (and no overtime compensation). The job itself is not bad and there is potential to learn alot. However, don't expect proper training and support from management.
Management loves to gossip, so make sure you get on their good sides otherwise you will find yourself at the butt of their jokes or find yourself being picked on.
I have been with the company for several years and hope I can get out asap. All the "restructuring" is making the company worse and not even tolerable to work at
Pros
Potential to learn alot as you work on different tasks
Cons
Salary, management, lack of support, long hours, little work/life balance

SENIOR REQUIREMENTS ANALYST (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 July 2018
The staff at Morneau are quite friendly. Work was simple and not stressful to complete deadlines. The management was just as great. The team and staff that I worked with were extremely helpful and welcoming to new hires. They also have a quiet and relaxing lounge where you can eat your lunch, watch television, or play foosball. They even have a prayer room.
Pros
Super affordable gym membership at Fitness Connection
Cons
Salary could be better.

They don't care about their employees

No work-life balance whatsoever. At first, it may look like a nice place to work, but the managers aren't comprehensive and there isn't much flexibility in the schedules.
Pros
coffee machine, salary, benefits
Cons
Schedule, Work-life balance

Salaire inférieur au marché
Analyste, assurances collectives (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC28 April 2018
Les heures de travail dépassent souvent le 37,5 hrs/sem parce qu'il faut livrer la marchandise avec des systèmes désuets, tout en mentant constamment aux clients leur faisant croire que tout est beau mais on gère des problèmes critiques à tous les jours. Il y a beaucoup d'employés qui tombent en maladie parce qu'ils sont tannés de travailler là, donc ils se mettent en invalidité payé et se cherchent une autre job ailleurs. Ça crée de la pression et plus de travail sur les autres employés. En plus, les salaires sont nettement inférieur avec ce que les autres entreprises offrent, et on nous fait croire que la compagnie est au même niveau. Un Analyste gagne en moyenne 40k, tandis qu'un Technicien aux AVS ailleurs peut facilement aller chercher 50k avec plus de 5 ans d'expérience. Je ne recommande pas cet endroit. Avec la pénurie d'employé sur le marché, il y a moyen de trouver mieux ailleurs. C'est ce que j'ai fait.
Pros
Port de jeans à tous les jours, Party de Noël gratuit au Reine Elizabeth
Cons
Salaire inférieur d'au moins 10k$ avec le marché

Satisfying position with great benefits and perks.
Counsellor/Therapist (Current Employee) –  Alberta14 April 2018
This is a good company to work for with reasonable compensation, stability, and great benefits/perks for salaried employees. Fellow employees are great to work with. Counsellors/therapists are able to choose their hours and days of work allowing for flexibility and regular life activities. Delivery of service provides standard therapeutic frameworks making this position easy to adjust and settle into. Counsellor/therapists are able to gain a wide variety of therapeutic experience, while at the same time working with Shepell's various customer models thus providing an opportunity to develop versatility and competency as a counsellor/therapist. Training includes on-boarding with a reasonable learning-curve, plus on-going clinical and personal professional development, allowing the counsellor/therapist to adapt as their therapeutic base expands. As a Canadian company and a leader in this service-industry, Shepell's customer-base continues to expand allowing for new positions and advancement. Join the team and experience the benefits.

Involves functioning clients with whom the counsellor is able to see active progress.

Stay away from CSS
Therapist (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 March 2018
Different branches of the company operate differently, but in Children's Support Solutions, you'll find yourself underpaid, overworked and untrained for expectations that aren't even communicated. Some inside the company are kind and sincerely care about the children they serve but most, and management especially, just care about the bottom line.

Dont stay long
Data Entry Clerk (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON20 March 2018
Data entry clerks start at $28k. Overworked and very under paid for the work load they give you. The work for the title is not what it is. You do so much more than data entry but get away paying next to poverty due to the title. Data entry clerk salary is almost the bare minimum for the workload. Advancement is a joke. They hire externally on some positions when there are qualified internal employees. If clients could see they treat employees they might leave.
Pros
Flexible hours, dress down everyday, benefits
Cons
Under paid. Too much work. Job title and work does not match

Horrendous company..non existent support structure.
Clinical Therapist (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC1 March 2018
You will never move up or be promoted..12people control everything.Counselling for 20 dollars per hour,this is your place,no benefits or bonuses this is your place.Can be dismissed at a managers whim without recourse.Dont waste your time or energy counselling for this company.They will use you and abuse you and dump you when you ask for a rate increase.
40hr is what they pay,no benefits or perks.If you want to work for a cutrate insurance Corp that only cares about stockholders and making money then by all means this is your place.My advice is to bypass Shepell at all costs,just not worth your time and education.They do not care about people or employees.
Pros
non
Cons
too many to list

Environnement de travail productif mais très hiérarchisé
Technicienne comptable (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC26 February 2018
La forte hiérarchisation au sein des équipes créée souvent des problèmes de tensions et des sentiments d'injustices, car on a l'impression de ne pas être traité à sa juste valeur. Surtout quand d'autres personnes récoltent tous les mérites du travail qu'on a effectué.
Pros
Possibilité de faire du télé-travail, ou de travailler 4 jours par semaine
Cons
Mauvaise gestion au sein des équipes
