    I have been working at Caisses Desjardins full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Really nice co-workers, good support by management, good environment overall, a lot to learn and a lot of opportunities to grow

    Cons

    Outdated tools for the workplace, not challenging enough, lack of motivation by some coworkers who seems overworked while some others looks like they have nothing to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more agressive!! I fell like we are always on the defense, give us the tools to fight back! Cut on the management, it looks like managers are always on meetings and events but nothing new emerge.

    Fairly good work conditions and benefits (indexed pension plan, insurances and salary, etc..)

    Not suited for those who are looking for a challenging and simulating environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture does not encourage their employees to be creative and to go beyond the box.

    Pros

    - Social advantages
    - Sustainability
    - Integrity
    - Fair salaries

    Cons

    - Slow moving
    - Lack of vision
    - Opportunities for advancement come scarcely

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the business side of things. Although the company's cooperative values are important, many strategic decisions are taken with relatively low insight and weak focus on the bottom line. Quick-risers are held down in the name of tenure and stability, which limits innovation and growth within the operations.

    Pros

    Desjardins invests heavily in developing employees and encourages further education. Benefits and pension are great.

    Cons

    To try and inspire all staff by having success stories of people within and out of the company shared. A more incentivised program
