    Pros

    Great co-workers and centrally located. The environment is okay and it is convenient to the mall.

    Cons

    There is no real direction set by senior leadership. They are understaffed and need help. To many hours.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare and execute a strategy

    Pros

    None. Can't think of any! It was not a good place to work. Maybe it was good if you had no other job opportunities and were desperate!

    Cons

    They advance all of the dumbest people who do not contribute to the team but are either male or just "in" with management. Politics over quality. I saw some very talented people quit when they realized they would never get promotions after 3 years of dedicated service! I also saw males being given promotions after only 1 year while hard working,over qualified female employees got passed up! This company is run by clowns.

    Advice to Management

    Change your attitude and pay attention or you will continue to lose clients.

    Pros

    decent benefits and pay. flexible hours depending on your manager. still sort of a family atmosphere.

    Cons

    ...familiarity breeds contempt. poorly documented system with steep learning curve means they cannot add bandwidth quickly and quality suffers as a result. too much passing the buck. internal dissension between departments and some people seem like they are there only to collect a paycheck and are not passionate about what they do.

    Advice to Management

    spend the time and effort to onboard your new employees. spend the time and effort to insist on quality documentation and processes. The rating relates ONLY to the ATL.

    Pros

    I wouldn't recommend anyone to work for Morneau Shepell. The leadership is poor. The workplace is negative. The business culture is unprofessional.

    Cons

    Both personal and professional growth is limited. The training structure needs improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so many unprofessional people who are NOT licensed agents to enroll people into health insurance on the 10th floor. Rehire people who are willing to work hard. Broker Services needs to be an automated service for brokers to call in for their commissions. That department was created to take up space, it's not needed because many of those temporary employees are not licensed brokers or insurance agents. Too many temporary employees in one location. The pay is a low. Employees are always coming in late for work. Both temporary and permanent employees don't know the definition of "business casual". The training program is the worst. The trainers don't know their jobs. The supervisors are unprofessional and rude. Everyone comes to work like they are going to a night club.

  10. Great place if you want to be part of the next big thing.
