    Pros

    The development and opportunities vary greatly; I enjoyed working with my team and had exposure to senior management. The organization is relatively flat, so if you work hard it will be noticed. Good life balance. Decent benefits. If you are client facing, there is excellent exposure to build relationships.

    Cons

    The company has a lot of people who need to be shuffled. There are many people with a utility attitude and have been promoted over the years. In some cases, it's great and there is a lot of history that is maintained but in some ways the groups are led by poor leaders/insecure leaders that teach poor behavior that isn't seen in growth companies. The compensation is on the lower side. The importance of courses and education has taken a step back.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the flat org structure but consider expanding to perks that would keep strong performers which includes higher pay and better rewards.

    Pros

    Great management team, Employees get along and mesh very well. always a genuine smile on everyone's face.
    Work life balance is important to everyone.
    Definitely enjoy working here.

    Cons

    Compensation is good not great. (Base Salary / Bonus for hard work)
    Resources to get work done (computer hardware) are severely outdated, at least 7 - 10 year old desktops running inferior operating systems.

    Advice to Management

    Semi Annual performance reviews with career growth and direction would be a great addition.

    Pros

    Top talent exists throughout the organization which makes the organization a great place to learn. There seems to be a high potential for advancement. Pay is better than average.

    Cons

    A number of streamlined processes seem to be missing throughout the organization. The company moves quite slowly with adoption of new ideas. Seems set on past successes, making it harder to build for the future. Not many perks offered to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Better alignment of IT and the business will yield much better results by lowering costs and delivering of key initiatives. Work on company culture is required in order to keep employees satisfied over the long run.

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. Reasonable work life balance. Some people were great to work with but most senior people not.

    Cons

    Most boring company I have ever worked for. I would prefer to poke my eyes out with a stick rather than ever face the sheer utter ignorance and arrogance that engulfs the world that is TMX group. One more person telling me how great they are just made me realize how much parents lie to their children. Yes your mother lied to you. You are simple and plain otherwise you wouldn't be at TMX. I cannot recall such a hideous and demeaning experience requiring constant showering to remove the stench of mediocrity from my very skin at the end of each day. If there were ever an argument for offshoring, TMX Group would be it. Just send it completely to Mumbai or better yet just have ICE put it out of it's misery.

    Advice to Management

    Nowhere to go but sideways. Just stay put, cash out and delude yourself into thinking you did something meaningful.
