Ci is a fun and exciting place to work. It allows for opportunities for growth and personal development. The team and management is very supportive and encourages you to try out of the box thinking

Legacy technologies and Politics run office. There is no job guarantee and you can see that major part of the workforce is just there because they were there from the beginning.

Not enjoyable and unhealthy. Very negative environment due to client redemptions and overall company performance. Management was poor and not trustworthy along with peers.
Points négatifs
Long hours, thankless work, constant confusion, untrustworthy management

Overall company is OK , management makes all the difference!
Depends on each person's experience I guess. For the most part the environment and things the company offers is about the same as any other corporation!

I have enjoyed working at CI Investments and learned a lot as they strive to update their technology in most cases as much as possible, considering the costs and technology requirements.

When I was first interviewed, I was told that the sales coordinator position is administrative- not true. It is a sales position in which you are to contact people to set up appointments, sometimes calling them daily to book appointments. Also when I was interviewed I was told the compensation would be $52000 per year, then after hire told it would actually be $45000. During the interview I was told I would receive coverage and benefits immediately on hire but this was not true. There was no clear training on what was actually expected of me or how to do the tasks assigned or expected, someone at this position is expected to "figure it out" and do it right the first time, or be subject to yelling and passive aggression from other members of the team. I was sent to Toronto for two weeks of training in which we learned nothing on how to actually do the reports or tasks we would be assigned, but instead "sold" on the different investment packages. Woe be to anyone to actually works the hours they're told to - if you don't voluntarily stay back at least an hour every day to show how hard you're working, you will be told you're not pulling your weight. People working here are more like members of a cult for investments.

Overall good company to work for. People are good, there could be some improvements. They need to maybe take in the ideas from employees a little better.

Poor work environment. They do not care about you or your position in the company. They do not pay their employees well, not even their own commissions!
Workplace is very judgemental and unprofessional. Management does not do anything to protect their valuable employees.

Working for this organization helps develop careers up to a certain point then you plateau and need to leave the company if you wish to continue to grow.

Most of the development runs on legacy technologies and platforms. The salary and bonus structure is heavily influenced by work relations and job security is a serious concern.
Points positifs
location, flexibility of working hours
Points négatifs
legacy technologies, management

Front line staff are paid less than industry standards. Service level agreement means staff are constantly pressured on their performance, despite frequent staff shortages.

Upward mobility is limited to those that are friends of the upper management or have been picked out beforehand. Job performance does not impact salary much.


It's an ok place to get your foot in the door, but I wouldn't stay.
Points négatifs
Not a meritocracy

Unless you're in need of industry experience and simply looking to enter the asset management business, it would be difficult to recommend joining CI Investments.

Management is less than inspiring and has proved to be incapable of listening to feedback from employees.


The acquisition of Sentry Investments in 2017 has been a failure on multiple levels. An overwhelming majority of existing sales staff have walked away since joining. Culture at CI feels much less competitive than other firms, while nepotism is alive and well. The "integration with CI" has left previously loyal clients wondering why certain product lines have been unsupported and neglected.


Compensation is easily the worst on the street. Variable pay structure for sales would be laughable if it wasn't such a large part of overall pay. There's little to no transparency on how bonuses are paid. When it comes time to be paid, they'll try and back out. Expect to make about half of what the competition is paying.


Too many new and existing strategic partnerships make for a bloated product lineup that doesn't align with their client's values or priorities in the current market environment. Various legacy pricing programs make buying and selling funds a complicated, administrative nightmare. A major overhaul is necessary in this area to make it easier to do business.


Support from Client Services is not what it once was. Turnover is high and the department is understaffed as a whole. Without proper processes in place, the sales teams are not efficient. Advisors being misinformed and acting on incorrect information

Your coworkers here are the only thing that keep you in this place for so long. Mid-level "management" in the client service center spend the majority of their days shopping on Amazon/making personal phone calls and get upset if you ask them a job related question. Managers in this area are severely uneducated and have almost no finance related background or experience. There is extreme nepotism and favoritism which is why the majority of talent leaves for competitors. CI is way behind industry leaders and this is highly reflective in their dying share price. They are very understaffed and the turnover is high which is why there are so many current opportunities at CI.
Points positifs
- location, people, training
Points négatifs
- Salary, micromanegement, uneducated managers, favoritism

This company has really gone downhill and this is strongly reflected in the share price. CI is unable to compete effectively with the competition and they are losing a lot of talent due to: micromanagement, nepotism, favouritism and that lack of interpersonal connection between management and employees.

Any mistakes done in a previous year will be used against you and the year end bonuses are laughable. They are currently severely understaffed and the Sentry acquisition has been a nightmare. Steer clear.
Points positifs
location, training, people
Points négatifs
micromanagement, uneducated mid level managers, favouritism, pay

This company does not value true talent and hires people for low wages without any intention of promoting them.The manager for private client service was not an example for anyone, arriving to work late and lead his team into the ground.The turnover rate is so high here it has led me to conclude they do it on purpose. The culture breeds an over worked, low wages, ineffective management, negative energy with zero chance of ever being promoted.
They claim its hard to work in private client service, the truth is the job is easy, its the dysfunctional management team that enjoys making your life awful. The offices and washrooms are so filthy and unsanitary it makes you literally nauseous, which confounds me because you would think they want to uphold a good image.The truth is CI needs to overhaul management and their HR department if they want to compete. As of now it is clear they are lagging behind all their competitors and its obvious to me its because they don't uphold strong values of effective leadership, strong talent and good energy. My prediction based on what I saw is clients and stakeholders have already become so disillusioned by the low quality of their service they have already lost most of them and CI's reputation will continue to falter. I would not recommend to anyone to work here, run for the hills before taking an opportunity.

no pros
