    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Mackenzie Investments full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - A great group of peers working in the Marketing department - Decent compensation - Good work-life balance

    Cons

    - Terrible morale, and thus very high turnover - Disorganized workflow: be ready to never do your best work, because you'll have to turn it around in a day with no resources - Management seems to change direction quarterly; not a lot of long-term planning or vision - Zero support for training, growth or career-pathing (unless you're management, in which case, sure, fly to conferences, great idea)
