Senior Associate Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 March 2019
Need to have good training material. Need to learn on as we go and procedures are not updated on a yearly basis as they should be. Management needs to consider work life balance and recognize effort that is put by their employees.
Senior Manager Investment Accounting (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 November 2018
Good environment and management is very approachable and helpful, however it is a big disconnection between low level and upper management. Upper management forces practices and policies without consulting with lower management and without proper knowledge of the outcome of these policies. People are treated as numbers by upper management, however lower management puts tremendous efforts to fix upper management mistakes. People are worked very hard while compensation lack by much compared to competition. Advise for upper management is to pay attention to talents and not let them go easily as it takes a very long time to get individuals at certain skills level. In the end having talented individuals translates on higher returns for investors. Cutting costs is effective when it applies at a certain degree to increase efficiency and not on everything as once you lose good people you will end up with poor results and you will lose the clients as well.

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 October 2016
Intense environment with a lot of opportunity for overtime and learning new things. Flexible work arrangements may make work/life balance possible. Amazing co-workers but clique management style limits opportunities if not overtly holding back progressive staff wanting to contribute more and/or challenge stagnant ideas. There is lack of communication potentially due to structure of organization. Most challenging part of job is rapidly changing demands and reactive culture. Most enjoyable part of the job is the network of colleagues and opportunities to learn.
Senior Financial Administrator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 July 2016
The fund management company with global presence, badly management when it come to staff, unjust culture and managers are force to get unpaid overtime from staff. Long hours with out recognition and reward.
Equity/Fixed Income Operations Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 May 2016
Overall the department I'm in is a good first job stepping out of school to build your 1 or 2 years of work experience. However, if you are ambitious and want more I feel you can quickly grow out of your role. Therefore, since I want to grow more I need to look for other opportunities.
This is an American company and when I apply to their firm I can't seem to get their pages to translate to English. Everything is in French, never seen anything like it and I have been applying for months. I was so frustrated trying to simply submit an application that I had to come leave a review, it's absolutely crazy. How terrible is this company if simply submitting an application through their god awful website is this difficult.
