Avis d'employé sur Canada Life Assurance Company
Bullying Environment and Colleagues working in fear from Management
Have been working for the company for over 15 years now. It drastically changed in the wrong direction. Their new name and the business centralization caused many professionals to stay with no work. The called "voluntary" early retirements, the job role closures, the performance reviews on certain not in favour employees have been conducted since 2017 with the purpose to save capital and hire new individuals at lower salaries. The turnover in this company is the highest among the insurance sectors. The labour exploitation is unspeakable and no union to protect the worker. If you complain, you are to be stagmatised and blamed and accused in allegations. Have seen examples of many human humiliations over individuals. They just choose to leave and not fight a lost battle with a company like this where HR covers up the wrongdoing. The benefit plan is the only good factor left but the human health is more important. I was diagnosed with a condition due to the stress and workload that eventually harm you. Will change careers to safe my personal balance and life. I regret because the company is my home for years. I have witnessed abuse on ppl to manage over the normal rate of caseload to the point when one of the colleagues had to go in medical leave. This caseload is now managed by 2 colleagues because it is the way to fix the managers' mistake. But it caused this person's health because managers did never listen or wanted to accept the feedback or care for their worker's health. Favouritism is monstrous in the office. I hope one day the company to be reborn in what it used to be. - plus...

I really enjoyed my work and the people I worked with at Great-West Life. The company culture is respectful and the work opportunities are plentiful and rewarding. The biggest challenge I encountered is change. Some long tenured folks are pretty set in their ways. Sometimes things take longer to move forward at Great-West, both in terms of decision making and employee engagement.
