    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Pros

      Good work life balance - come and go as you please. Good benefits and decent bonus. Comfortable place to work.

      Cons

      Poor management and work is not challenging. No project is ever completed largely due to a real lack of partnership between business and IT even though Partnership is one of CPPIB's 'Guiding Principles'. Management constantly looking to cover themselves and won't think twice to throw someone under the bus.

      Pros

      Good work life balance. Great people to learn from. Rigorous workflows. Learning opportunities through Launch & Learn, with free launch. Great working environment.

      Cons

      Focus too much on diversity (especially gender) instead of merits. Career development is slow, head counts are too limited and strict. Office politics everywhere and bureaucracy.
