    Pros

    A large company where you can gain good experience. Essentially go there to learn, not to make money.

    Cons

    Bad managers who are disrespectful to employees - almost on purpose it seems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First of all, downsize management. The cut management salaries.

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I worked at Intact Insurance part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly Colleges, Good beginning salary, Plenty of respect for their employees when it comes down to anything related to work. Although the cons, this company is working hard at developing better inter-human relationships and when leaving the company, this was definitely at its best in the 3 years or so I've worked there

    Cons

    Communication is difficult, Emails rarely get read, following up with particular life demands can be quite a challenge when something comes up out of the work environment. This being said, it makes it extremely difficult for advancement to any other department. When it comes to things like your personal life, your nothing but a number to most of them. This is something that, from experience, I have seen in a few call centers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Consider their opinions and follow up on emails.

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice.

    Cons

    There are so many. There is a glass ceiling for women in the company. There is clear discrimination in upper management for anyone that isn't French Quebecois. They do everything they can to stall employee progress and keep them in the same job for years. They don't give inflation on salary increases. If you work for them for 5 years you'll get on average 1% increase per year while the new person who starts will make more salary than you. They are a truly vile company towards their employees and clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was a value of excellent but all you care about now is the shareholder price and this company is dying.
