    I have been working at CI Financial Income

    Pros

    I believe that the best reason is the positive working environment. It may be because I've been fortunate to be working on a great department with management that is both fair and intelligent, giving me the space that I require to do my work. I've been at other workplaces where management is poor and unfair to the staff, and in my opinion the atmosphere provided by management makes all the difference.
    Another reason would be some of the benefits, which seem to be better than other workplaces on average. Medical seems to be more than sufficient (I've never paid a penny for any drugs prescribed to me, which I've never experienced before), and dental is very good as well. At times I'm surprised that certain things are covered, for example my wife's maternity compression stockings - something that was not really required and thus I figured were an out of pocket cost - were fully covered.
    Also, the pay seems to be quite decent here. I have the feeling that some people might find this to be untrue, but personally I believe that my pay is fair, compared to some other places that I have worked, where it was obvious that everyone was getting underpaid. I'm content with my pay thus far, and would categorize the salaries here as average to above average.

    Cons

    The greatest downside without a doubt is the lack of any pension plan or retirement plan. I find that most companies have an incentive for pension and retirement plans where the company will match your contribution up to a certain percentage of your pay. There is no such thing here - you are on your own when it comes to saving for retirement. Considering the wide availability of this elsewhere, I think this is a huge negative, and I know people that have left for this specific reason. This is actually the main reason why I continue to look for work elsewhere. The way it's going now with a growing family and bills to pay, I'm not ever going to retire.
    Another downside is that there is no bonus at the end of the year. Only certain managers and executives get bonuses, which really can hurt you come Christmas time. I'm used to getting a bonus every year from my other jobs, and I think this is the norm in the financial industry. Not here though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always try to give everyone a bonus, especially if you say that we are had a great fiscal year!! And introduce a pension and rrsp contribution matching program - everyone else does it, and it's important for us to know that you are thinking of us all the way to retirement.
