    I have been working at Grey Power full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Incentives to make lots of sales, although they are not very valuable

    Cons

    Management always lying and manipulating staff. They had a company meeting with us recently in a movie theatre and made us think that so many good changes were coming, including the benefits which are now actually worse and the new software that is worse for us brokers. And then at the end of the presentation, they made all of us stand up and congratulate each other on the changes - that we had no idea of the truth about. So disgusting. The company is rotten and should be ashamed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly respect your employees and take some lessons on how to have integrity.

    Big profit increase, yet salary and benefits cut for everyone. Tricky management and disrespect.

    I have been working at Grey Power

    Pros

    I worked here before moving to another subsidiary company. It was nice to have the opportunity to move - that's about it.

    Cons

    Really an HR disaster. Prepare to be constantly brainwashed and to receive a sub par salary, while management treats you like children and acts secretive the whole time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees can see you planning bad things behind their backs. We don't appreciate it. And your silly employee engagement activities are really insulting. You don't think we know you cut our benefits? Show some respect and integrity.

    I worked at Grey Power full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    amazing training program, good benefits, lots of "social" events, nice co-workers
    its a great place to learn about insurance and get your foot in the door

    Cons

    you are not just a number you are a stat - quite literally. the log everything - including your washroom breaks. extremely sales focused, dont treat all potential customers fairly, very stressful when you get yelled at all day by both clients and management, everything is monitored. high turn around - if you make it to 6 months thats an accomplishment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to work on treating staff fairly
