    I worked at CMLS Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are both competent and ethical. Unfortunately, a rarity in my working life. You are encouraged to do your best work.

    Cons

    Toronto is expensive. It makes the compensation not as good. Union station is awful. Not really the company's fault, but worth mentioning.

    I worked at CMLS Financial full-time

    Pros

    - Lots of potential to grow and area to explore. If you're proactive you can take on any type of extra work that you see fit for your growth.

    Cons

    Good people at the top but sometimes lower-level management is mediocre and don't have any idea how to run the place. Sometimes they hire random people and pay top dollar for basic work while their actual analysts are doing most of the heavy lifting but the pay is still a joke compared to the industry.

    I have been working at CMLS Financial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have worked at other companies in the same position and CMLS is the first employer where I can truly say that I have absolute faith in the management team. When I go to the office everyday, I walk in with the confidence knowing that I work for a management team that is highly knowledgeable about the industry and are people I can rely on for solid advice. The company is always aware of the state of their staff and will actively change strategies to make work as manageable as possible for everyone.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of.

    Pros

    The Company does a great job of rewarding and recognizing employees for their valuable contributions.

    Cons

    As is the case with most organizations, system issues can be frustrating. However, I truly believe we have one of the best Technology Groups in the industry and the team is more than capable of addressing issues as they arise.

    I have been working at CMLS Financial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Culture - Senior management engages with employees often, team and company events/appreciation on a regular basis, charity involvement nationwide such as the ride to conquer cancer. Benefits - Good overall and introduced an RSP plan in 2018, which is competitive with other employers. Opportunity - For those who take the initiative, there are plenty of options for growth and/or learning opportunities within the business. As a growing and well respected company in the industry, there will also be opportunities.

    Cons

    There are some technology issues, but there is a good team in place and progress is being made.
