    I worked at CPP Investment Board full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great location next to the Eaton Center.
    - Looks good in the resume to impress future employers.

    Cons

    - Worst people environment I have experience in 10 plus years in the field.
    - Extremely toxic office politics with fake smiles (There are other reviewers with the exact same comment).
    - No room for diversity. No room for new ways of thinking. No room to share initiatives. Except for some favored individuals.
    - People wait to have the bonus paid to leave. Everyone is looking for a new job.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate and eliminate the groups oppressing others. You hired great people and joined being happy. It has a huge cost to have few people affecting in a negative way the experience of new people. Specially people coming from diverse backgrounds. Train managers to take seriously mental health and complaints.

    Bullying can affect the health of people and definitely does not bring productivity. Practice disciplinary actions to people breaking the code of conduct in terms of courtesy and respect to others.
