You must assimilate...
Working for Wawanesa is like working for the “Borg” You must assimilate You must do things the “Wawanesa way” even though that is ever changing

Unit managers are weak and usually castoffs from other companies who only know how to be acquiescent to those they report to

Poor enviroment
I had a short term contract at Wawanesa and it wasn't very enjoyable. I was trained by someone who was being trained and it was a horrible experience.

Easy, laid back job for a student with no experience.
Worked here during the summer while on break from university. I enjoyed this job, it was M-F 8-4 and fairly easy. Management was extremely nice, and made good friends with coworkers. No vacations as it was only a 3 month term which sucked so you cant have any days off. They train you very well and its a good job, i'd come back again next year. Above minimum wage too, not too much but better than just minimum.

I'm so glad I left
This company is rife with corruption especially in IT within the Winnipeg branch. Stress levels are high, morale is low and demands are unreasonable. The management is the most clueless group of executives I've ever experienced. Workers are treated poorly and the old school mentality has driven many to stress leave.

I was with the company approximately 4 years. It started out good but has turned an environment full of back stabbers and liars.


Be warned, especially if you are seeking an analyst position.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
No work life balance at all

It could use ALOT of improvements
The job itself is good, different everyday and is interesting. The cons is the supervisors and management. They definitely do not offer equal opportunity to everyone and display a huge and obvious amount of favoritism. People who have all the certifications (cpp's) and have been there for years stay in the same position while people with no background in insurance or any qualifications move up quickly within in a year. the company itself has become alot less customer friendly, and is becoming like all the other insurance companies that only care about money and their customer service is terrible. the company is going downhill and needs to seriously think of the customer FIRST
Pros
managment and supervisors
Cons
potlucks, team activities

There should be an option for zero stars
If you are in IT in any capacity, I cannot stress this enough. Walk the other way! The management team is ruled (I use the term in the true autocratic sense) by a unqualified SVP who has surrounded himself with sycophants who are equally walking disasters.
If you do decide to join regardless, expect a high stressed environment with no direction and management looking to blame anyone but themselves.


Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Pros
The only real pro of a DB pension plan was taken away for new employees
Cons
See above. You want work/life balance? Forget it here!

not a good company to work for
Unless you're friends with management or a male you will not get anywhere in this company. Many people have left for this reason. I have many complaints and they will not hesitate to ambush you to try and force you out. I do not recommend this company and they do not look after their staff or care about their concerns
