I have been working at Heritage Education Funds full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great open door policy, you can speak with anyone at the executive level.

Cons

Tight deadlines and a lot of projects on the go, all the time.

Advice to Management

Stick to only 3 - 4 projects per year... when there is too much on the go, you tend to miss stuff.

    Pros

    I would recommend the company to anyone, from a young graduate seeking to get into a financial industry to an established professional or executive with a lot of experience. It is a great company that let's you grow professionally, I mean, they get you involved with really cool and interesting projects, you get to acquire new skills that you can put on your resume, they even pay for your education.. of course if it is consistent with the goals of the department you are in.
    Heritage promotes often, they value their employees and let them move forward. I have seen people spending 7-8 years there and it feels like they have changed 2-3 careers without moving out of the company! That's cool considering you get to grow professionally without a hassle of looking for a new job!
    Management is really good - from the business owners to front line managers - you can tell they care and it transpires onto the teams as well. And a big bonus - Heritage is actually doing something very good for Canadians and for the future of Canadian kids! Lots of employees are so attached to the company because they believe in the product and service we give to our customers - we help parents save for their kids future post-secondary education! I wish someone had done it for me when I was a kid. So yeah, come and join Heritage, you won't regret! And when you do, knock on the 5th door from reception, because I will still be there and will be happy to say hi to you!

    Cons

    Cannot think of any cons to mention here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job you are doing! We believe in you!!

    I have been working at Heritage Education Funds full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Enthusiastic, motivated staff with a genuine love of the product
    - Management and executive leadership encourage creativity and the sharing of ideas
    - Everyone has a voice in how the company operates (top level management actually listens)
    - Plenty of opportunities for advancement (the company likes to promote from within)
    - Constantly evolving business practices to take advantages of emerging technologies (e.g. new social media platforms)
    - Highly competitive compensation and benefits packages
    - Field that changes from year to year, with an increasingly strong demand for our product (as tuition fees increase)
    - Dynamite social committee that plans exciting events all year 'round, really making you feel valued

    Cons

    - The industry itself is tightly regulated and constantly under media scrutiny
    - Head office is in North York, which could be a good or bad thing (your mileage may vary)
