GWL wants you to learn and is willing to pay *some* academic upgrading, if your manager approves.
GWL Disability - overworked employees, which has led to a lot of stress in the workplace. Management not working to make the atmosphere better (mandatory overtime, what?)

Co-workers are great and make it worth sticking around.

I worked for this company for over 6 years and it wasn’t terrible at first. There was advancement, appreciation, and even fair compensation. After the office went under new management, everything went downhill. The regional manager and all higher up managers care about one thing - money. They don’t care about their staffs health and their workload. One team alone went through approximately 12 staff members or more in a single year They didn’t pay enough for the amount of work that is expected of each employee Then they hire managers who have no idea how to manage and run teams into the ground. I’m so glad I left!

Their workplace culture is not really hectic, I learnt about teamwork and the hardest part of the job was being able to meet the target for production

Great West Life is an amazing company with a wonderful culture. I fit right in as I stared. GWL provided with the resources and tools to complete desk responsibilities.

Great place to work.
Management is usually fantastic.

Each floor has actual fun team building activities once a month.

Work tasks are high in volume, so not a job to sit back and do nothing.

Good place to work if you actually enjoy working.

I went to do a maternity relief for 6 months and ended up staying for 6 years+ after the mat person return. They had to let me go when they merged with Great West Life because of seniority. It was very hard for my supervisor but she had no choice.I would work there again if I was given the chance but no opening.

It's a good place to work, however I wouldn't recommend it. Management picks on weaker roles/staff. I've seen some staff brought to tears and others get quiet when they are more outgoing and happy. There is no recognition for your work. People tend to use you and put their work on you. If you are too good at your job, you will get put down and you will be made to feel like you can't do your job or aren't doing your job right. If you take too many sick days, you will be questioned. Work environment can become toxic and get too stressful at times. The hardest part is trying to please managers and get work done after getting put down. The enjoyable part I think would be the events here, like the dinner and dance, co-ed day, etc.
Points positifs
Out-of-office events, good cafeteria
Points négatifs
Underpaid for type of work, poor benefits

Great company to work for with good work incentives. If downtown location, a con is that you pay for parking daily. I enjoyed working for this company however i didn't feel all opportunities were presented as desired.

no job security even for those who have been there for years and years. The top management doesn't care about employees. they leave things random and they called natural movement. lots of politics and drama on a typical day.However the nature of work itself is a good exposure and huge experience.

Great place to work. Company does a lot to reward their employees. Being new I did find it hard to learn a lot about how the departments intertwine between each other.
