Brookfield Asset Management Reviews
Pros – Good quality of life as hours worked are not too much. Brookfield also sponsors several arts initiatives for which employees may be able to receive free tickets.
Cons – Work is not very challenging in the back office. Management is not in tune with the employees. Salary is not up to NYC standards.
Pros – Some great coworkers across several internal teams.
Great work life balance - rarely work more than 40.
Cons – Poor leadership, lots of politics with little results.
Below average pay.
Office has clique's like a school cafeteria, this leads to terrible communication.
No sense of ownership for anyone's work ethics or decision making.
Office is mostly AVP, VP and Directors - about 70% of employes have this sort of title (including the entire front office which has no associate on the team). This creates inflated egos.
Wasteful - money only goes to misguided projects and old leadership.
Advice to Senior Management – Remove NY senior leadership, everyone has been there to long without having accountability.
Attempt to be proactive.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
“Great benefits, excellent location, although it's not ideal for technology workers who want to advance their careers”
Pros – Good benefits package, excellent office location, good balance between work and personal life.
Cons – Good employees won't stay very long. There is no CIO and senior management don't have a clear vision.
Advice to Senior Management – Empower your employees or at least listen to what they have to say.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros – Qualified team, strong focus on improvement in the Australian market, strong brand reputation in Australia
Cons – Far removed from head office in Canada. Sometimes felt like it was managed like a private equity portfolio company and constrained financially at times.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Laid back and friendly senior management.
Helpful and hard working colleagues.
Cons – Too Toronto / North America centric.
Corporation is still run like a small club controlled by the senior Managing Directors, and not like a Fortune 500 / 1000 company.
Advice to Senior Management – Trust the locals when you are looking at overseas markets.
– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Big name company in the relocation field. An asset to your resume. Comfortable, airy office. Subsidized cafeteria. Good benefits. Promotes from within.
Cons – Badly managed work flow. Low employee morale in my department which had obviously been ongoing and unaddressed for a long time. Poorly designed training program.
Advice to Senior Management – Stay more in touch with front line employees and don't allow problems to fester until they escalate into major issues.
