    I worked at Wawanesa Insurance full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, good retirement plan.

    Cons

    Overworked, outdated computer system and little engagement from Management to staff.

    Advice to Management

    Staff need to be more engaged with each other. If management invested time to engage the staff, staff would be happier, then they would help clients which would help productivity. Staff spend 7.5-8 hours a day together but feels there is no connection. Computer programs need to be updated to serve the clients better with less errors.

    I have been working at Wawanesa Insurance full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    If you're tired of running after modern technologies or you're good in politics, this place is for you

    Cons

    Definitely not a place for technical person to grow

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers, the organization has extremely deep hierarchy of managers spending time in endless meetings. The product development doesn't have long term agenda, poor quality of the product is a direct result of development by patches and luck of vision
