    Negative Outlook


    great cafeteria, good gym, great people


    Out of date workstations, staff are not provided the tools or support to do their job properly. Little to no advancement opportunities. HR policies are sketchy when it come to who gets promoted and when. You can't move to a new job within the company without being pulled back into your old one.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your staff and those who are on the front lines. There is little to no knowledge that is gathered or taken into consideration when decisions are being made. Management doesn't understand what their staff does and what they need to do their jobs.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Great-West Lifeco in December 2008.


    Terrifying indeed. Depends on the employer.
