    I have been working at IG Wealth Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Job is fairly easy, daily task and weekly/monthly objectives are also fairly easy to achieve - Good medical, health and dental benefits - Good stock options, the company matches employee contributions by 50%, up to max 6% of annual salary - Provide training on various investment products every 3 months or so, if you have good stats

    Cons

    - Office politics, your ability to social network within the department overpowers your qualifications (educational background, stats, etc.) If you're a good talker and you like to mingle with your bosses, regardless if you just started 3 months ago, you will have a good chance of getting an early promotion

    I have been working at IG Wealth Management full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Industry leading advanced financial planning team support.

    Cons

    You're responsible for paying expenses to work here. Cutting benefits (no longer will provide matching for retirement plans, reducing employee benefit credits that can be applied for health and dental coverage). Technology costs will increase nearly 13%. Have consistently reduced compensation year after year and that will continue into 2020. Bottomline it costs more to work here and you get paid less than before.... Probably as simple as I can put it. There are many options out there explore them I trust you will find a better overall balance between costs and compensation.

    Advice to Management

    You have already lost consultants due to these changes. Think long and hard about where this company is going as it's heading down a dangerous path.

    I have been working at IG Wealth Management full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Support to multiple charities, nice cafeteria, some really good people, paid training, benefits are so so.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring and never knowing if you are next. Technology needs to be improved. Building air quality needs improvement. A very stressful environment. Annual salary increases are very minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Stop restructuring and deal with the true issues. You will not receive the results you need if you keep terminating good people. You have the right people but senior leadership needs to change their culture, collaborate and focus on what truly is required to make change successful. The organization has too many executives, and they are not working together in an effective manner. Stop trying to do everything... immediately. Too much is started with little or made up results. Too much money is wasted on severance and travel (use your technology to collaborate instead). Use this money to recognize your real workers.
