    Pros

    The firm is growing rapidly thanks to additional CPP and it is a good, safe job in finance/investing

    Cons

    - There are many layers in CPPIB (as you would expect in a pension fund), resulting in unnecessary bureaucracy. Environment is extremely politically correct although it depends on your group - Underpays market significantly, but it is a safe job - Diversity program has diluted the talent pool of CPPIB
