Hello, I recently moved to Toronto, Canada and while looking for opportunities, I came across an investor servicing role at Brookfield Asset Management which I believe aligns very well with my past experience and skills. Looking to connect with someone who could potentially refer me internally. Thank you.

driven, smart people, intellectually honest and decisive
typical growing pains- expanding globally, establishing scale but consistency of practice. Difficult track record on some funds.

Decent benefits and free snacks
Abusive work place Management is better then everyone else, won’t even try to get to know people below them or even smile at least senior staff Doesn’t believe your sick if you take a sick day, literally learned nothing from the pandemic Major Job duties given that are not mentioned in job description, also zero mention of probation period in contract and yet has probation period Training is basically non existent Very overstimulating office environment and unorganized and outdated processes that they are not open to changing Communication between companies is horrendous and almost embarrassing Lots of staff doing extra hours and not taking lunch Treat younger adults with disrespect Blaming less senior staff for mistakes they made based off management instructions3

Biggest player in its field in Canada
Bullying culture throughout the company. Employees were forced into the office during the height of pandemic. Senior management checked with legal counsel to make sure staff won't be able to sue the company. Top management is filled with a sea of egotistical old white guys. Once during townhall, the CEO got mad at loud background noise and left the meeting completely like a 5-year-old child. Working in the office is like being in a jail. Every move is under watch. Women who are favored by the management are very catty and gossip like mean high school girls. Brutal manual work is done to produce a billion-dollar AUM company's financial statements, which inevitably results in long working hours.5
