Current Employee - Residential Mortgage Underwriter in Montreal, QC (Canada)

I have been working at Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation

Pros

Stable job, great pension plan and benefit, competitive compensation for most position. Especially for residential mortgage underwriter. Most manager treats employee well and work condition are generally good. Great employer for work/life balance. When you start, you know right away what your income will be for the next few years, pay scale are very transparent.

Cons

Slow pace, only 3 weeks of vacation for the first 8 years, incentive pay and bonus is very small (4-6%). Promotion are generally within the corporation and often there already a preferred candidate for a posting, yet the whole process is complete. Hiring process is not always as fair as it should be. Communication to employee from Senior management is not efficient.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open to change. Reward and recognize employee commitment and hard work. Be more generous in your hospitality or dept budget toward your employee.

    Pros

    Management is great. The organization for the most part is very flexible and understanding. They try to support work life balance.

    Cons

    Depending on your department - there may be many weeks and months of extreme overtime involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation at CMHC is less than market value. Many staff members have professional designations that are required for their positions however these staff members could earn significantly more elsewhere.
