      Great employer

      Pros

      Good wages. Good work-life balance. One of the few companies still giving out DB pension plans. Company claims to be client oriented, and its actions do seem to support that claim. Company is very open about changing job/team internally.

      Cons

      Many processes or in-house applications are dated. Company culture can sometimes feel cult-like which can sometimes feel disingenuous or « too much ».

      Fun group

      Pros

      - Everything is pretty straight forward regarding binding policies. - Underwriters are on point when you call in Ontario for questions and such. - The office I was in was pretty laid back and fun.

      Cons

      - Pay could be better. - Sometimes regarding the rules for binding policies it seems like they make it more difficult (driving history for auto, high value homes for property can be hard to do).
