Client Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 June 2019
I turned down another job offer to work for the People, which I now regret. The HR situation is a joke, and you can expect lengthy delays in the hiring process. (6 signatures required from Winnipeg to approve a mid-level job offer) I was told by upper management NOT to wear a tie, even though that’s how I chose to dress. There are good people here, however the training is woefully inadequate, and the wrong people are promoted. (A recently promoted manager cannot even draft an email herself, and relies on spell check because she cannot write English) A mind blowing amount of incompetence. Senior management will tell you their door is always open, but that’s definitely not the case. Ego maniacs. It’s a very cutthroat organization. If you’re able to tolerate the idiocy of management, the compensation is actually very good, and there are nice perks such as fresh fruit delivered to the lunchroom on Mondays. Way too corporate.
Vice President Sales & Client Management (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 April 2019
The organization has lofty goals but unwilling to invest in the business to realize its fullest potential. Amazing people but the senior leadership doesn't have the experience to take the company to the next level.
I learned a lot about the group benefits industry and their acquisition model.
My day to day consists of working with my team of 8 consultants and working efficiently with cross functional groups to ensure we align to the common goal of bottom line growth.
The most rewarding part of my job is meeting clients and helping them achieve their goals/overcome their challenges.
