EXECUTIVE ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 October 2018
Great company to work for. Nice people and great Management. The work environment can get stressful at times but the best part about working at Omers is that there is support available to manage and alleviate work stress. Overall, an excellent organization with a focus on forward thinking and results orientation.
Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 September 2018
Roles at OMERS are well paid and well staffed. The work life balance is very good and things generally move at a steady pace. Due to the lack of organic growth in a pension plan, opportunities to advance are few and far between and they tend to hire externally when they arise.
Front office roles are well supported, goal orientated and generally appear to have strong culture.
Corporate roles, in risk, finance, operations and pension admin are riddled with ego and politics. Which can be great if you have very strong EQ. However, in these roles quality of work will have nothing to do with your success.
Excellent Company to work with very very nice people

Analyst, Project Management Office (PMO) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 May 2018
As an intern I had an extremely positive experience in which I took full advantage to meet with people across the entire pension. Every person I messaged from Oxford Properties, to Borealis Infrastructure, to OMERS Private Equity responded and met me for a coffee. I had a great internship and would recommended OMERS to anyone!
Very positive culture, with people always willing to meet for career advice.
I was exposed to some office politics, however I think this is to be expected at any large enterprise.
Having a blast and don't think it'll end anytime soon.

The experience you will get here is second to none. You are engaging with the public, both the good and bad parts of that. Your going to be sent to situations where your are uncomfortable but it's all a great learning experience. Your team is amazing, always ready, willing and able to help you out at any turn. The company pays for training, shoe allowance and even parts of school and extra activities that go towards bettering yourself. The hours are flexible, you able to pick up extra shifts as you wish. Everyone that gets here moves on straight into law enforcement, special constables, by law, court security or other prestigious positions. A great place to work if you can get in.

Manager, Corporate Communications (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 August 2017
OMERS is a good company for your career. There are several opportunities. If you don't like open concept offices, this place is not for you. Salary, pension and benefits are good, especially in these days where pensions are not offered -- but remember, almost 14% of your salary will be directed to your pension account at source.
