Prefer no to comment, so many changes since I last worked there. It was great in the beginning then well not so good with the changes. I miss my some of my co workers but not the politics

You are treated like family . The President knows everyone’s name across the country. They are willing to listen and make sure the staff feel valued , you will always know you matter.

I have worked in quite a few brokerages and this is by far my worst experience. We were bought out by Brokerlink and not a single thing improved, in fact it is far worse. Benefits are no where near what we had, especially mental health coverage. It's clear by the way they treat their employees that they do not value their needs. Management was unconcerned with employee concerns or life/work balance which they claim is one of their biggest features for staff. Micromanaged, pay is low, unattainable bonus structure.
Points positifs
I have yet to find one
Points négatifs
The benefits, the pay, the management

Many of the employees are great! Management though does not care and are very disorganized. Management is an old boys type club.

Much i managed from Toronto and they have no clue about out west. I was there for 3 years and met my manager once. We were to have weekly one on one phone calls which happened maybe a dozen times in 3 years.

Do not expect cost of living increases in salary, or working your way up the ladder. Management won't let you get ahead. Benefits are okay, but team atmosphere is awful.

I think this company is pathetic. The management have no discretion and they gossip about staff and its unprofessional. There is also no job security, as they will let go of anyone that doesnt fit into their cult. Sadly. that means anyone with an actual brain has to go. Most of the staff are very average in IQ. lol.

I would never recommend anyone work for Brokerlink. Its like a giant highschool and even management gossips. They also let people go for no reason quite frequently, so there is no job security. For example, in the department I worked in, everyone sat and ate together everyday, told on each other and backstabbed each other constantly. My manager even discussed my personal life with several employees outside of work hours and played favorites. I don't have anything nice to say about this company, other than its pretty much a cult. Stay away at all costs.
Points positifs
Free lunches
Points négatifs
Gossip, backstabbing, high-school environment, no privacy

Worst work environment in the industry.

Overworked, underpaid, extremely stressful, below average management. Individuals in leadership positions that have absolutely no skills to be considered the definition of a "leader".


Micromanaged to the point you almost need to need to account for relief breaks.


The true leaders are on the front line, they take the brunt of the daily expectations and are under appreciated and evaluated time after time.


If you enjoy being held under a microscope, micro managed and under stress every day, this is the place.
Points positifs
Colleagues
Points négatifs
Management, lack of qualified leadership and environment

Try to avoid that company. You will be very badly overworked and underpaid. There were some fantastic people there but they were and are being forced out. NEVER believe in what the managers say about their willingness to listen to you. In the end you will be on the losing end.
Points positifs
Great colleagues
Points négatifs
Mico- and crisis management

The Director of Operation, whose office was located in Edmonton, had two sisters working as direct reports. That created a toxic environment for anyone who challenged any of her sisters.
She has since left the company, but the senior executive team had left this going for so long that we experience a high staff turnover.


The Edmonton office also had little room for work/life balance,


As for me, things were great as a facilitator until my layoff in November 2009.
Points positifs
Fun teaching environment, great facility and well equipped.
Points négatifs
Inflexible hours, not much freedom for work/life balance.

One of the principals Brokerlink prides itself on is paying "market" salaries. This doesn't happen. If you work for a brokerage acquired by Brokerlink be prepared to go without a pay increase for nearly two years depending on the acquisition date because they do increases in April and if your brokerage is acquired in the fall they'll skip you the first April.

They do create and promote a supportive culture which is very much appreciated. Good benefits - health, dental, life insurance, STD and perks like volunteer days.
Points positifs
Good benefits
Points négatifs
Low pay

This is an amazing company to work for. Having worked for many other brokerages, this one is next level. The compensation is great - good base salary plus the opportunity to make significantly more with the bonus programs. The benefits are amazing and there are different options available to you depending on what you need. The paid time off policy is the best I've ever seen! Everyone is really friendly, and the offices still have a small, warm feel. There is a lot of opportunity for movement, especially within the GTA.
Points positifs
Benefits, compensation and paid time off

Some of the Calgary office are extremely toxic, Do your reach before taking the job offer.

This company is NOT heading in the right direction. People turnover is just too much, no stability and hard to say what's going to happen tomorrow.


Extreme micromanagement ,I felt that my branch was poorly managed and our manager made a point to let us know a few times that we were all replaceable. It was the utmost stereotype of women unable to work together. I felt that some of that tension stemmed from management pitting "team members" against each other.

There was also a lot of unrealistic expectations, like one under staffed office doing two offices work load.

Previous employees were continuously blamed for current problems.
Points positifs
Vacation, average benefit
Points négatifs
Poor management, Toxic and unfriendly office environment, high turnover, no stability

The salary is competitive for the industry. The benefits are good and PTO is generous. Very good with training and furthering education. Specific workflows which help keep everything structured and the work environment organized.

Fast paced, increasing workload for the driven. As an insurance brokerage, they are excellently technologically advanced with a strong focus on growth. Day to day can be stressful, but very rewarding and fulfilling. Compensation is competitive, bonus opportunity is great, fantastic benefits.

Professional development highly encouraged and great management.


I'd highly recommend this to a broker, who wants to work.
Points positifs
Great benefits, opportunities, fulfilling work
Points négatifs
Can be a tough workload for inexperienced and inefficient

Satisfactory working environment. Company could provide better training for new employees. Overall, I would rate it as average at best and would be comfortable recommending it to someone looking to gain experience in the insurance industry.
