      Pros

      Good benefits good people good salary. Next to Eaton’s. Strong growth opportunities and budget for additional learning

      Cons

      Lots of red tape. Why is there a twenty word minimum? That makes no sense. You’re just forcing me to fill up this empty space with garbage.

      Advice to Management

      Nah everything’s pretty good. And again stop requesting this to have a twenty word minimum. I don’t want to write so much.

      Pros

      CPPIB offers a fast-paced, challenging environment. The organization is growing, which means exciting projects, change, and the opportunity to contribute to new 'work' that may not have been done before in the organization. Overall the work environment is very positive and supportive.

      Cons

      Competing priorities - the organization is growing quickly, which brings with it new challenges and requests. The department at times can struggle with prioritization, or shifting focus too regularly based on business demands.

      I have been working at CPP Investment Board full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Amazing culture where workplace diversity and equality are not just buzzwords. Seniors are very willing to take time out of their busy schedules to meet with young analysts. Coworkers and seniors are realy interested in helping you develop skills and knowledge, and the firm believes in investing in employees for the long term, which is clearly effective with the average tenure of employees.

      Cons

      Large organization where it’s difficult to make deep connections with many people and challenging to make yourself stand out (many people are very smart and ambitious).
