    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Tries to do the right thing but held back by union and old systems

      Pros

      Does what's right for staff and members of the Plan Good work-life balance Global, reputable brand

      Cons

      No career growth. People never leave, so there's very little movement Mired down by old technology, legacy systems Paralyzed by decision making, made worse by ineffective/overly collaborative leadership Lack of process, professional business/project management that increases operational risk Management is beholden to unionized staff, who are resistant to "outside" points of view and working in new, more efficient ways.

      Pros

      Was a Great company to work for until Ron Mock (CEO) retired. Salary is higher compared to other competitor pension companies. Work life balance is very important for them. Benefits are amazing. Company organizes various events and networking events.

      Cons

      After Ron Mock retired it went downhill. New CEO is the selfish money only matters minded person. A lot of layoffs happened due to him and therefore now a lot of their roles are only contracts so they can use you and then drop you whenever they want.Typical corporate cultural, a lot of nepotism in this company. No room for growth, they say themselves their organization is very flat. Also the location of office is terrible and far from downtown core.
