    I have been working at Desjardins full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    One of the best employer ever! Management is super humane, they care about employees' wellbeing, never aksed over-time, very nice colleagues and working environment, relaxed office. The company gives you space and respect, but whenever you need anything (training, leaves, help) there always be someone for you. Managers often prepare little surprises for its employees weekly, like chocolates, fresh fruits, snacks, etc. Flexible working hours, good relationships between employees and managers, an excellent work-life balance

    Cons

    Don't really have cons here, the only thing I found is that Desjardins is very francophone, and if you have anglophone clients to assist, it's not easy to find anglophone support (hard to find documents in English and employees who speak English). the opportunity to climb up is limited if you are not fully in French Otherwise, everything is excellent

    I have been working at Desjardins full-time

    Pros

    Every employee has the same focus - to focus on our clients needs, to evolve our company, to keep things simple and to be a team player. These 4 things energize me and why I love to work at Desjardins.

    Cons

    Many jobs are located in the province of Quebec - ie innovation team, marketing but this is changing.
