    I have been working at Assante Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been there only for the 2 last weeks but I find that they are very professional and organized. The company culture seems to be very positive. Everybody is very helpful, highly professional and nice.

    Cons

    My manager left a week after my interview so I do not have anyone to report which is kind of complicated when you first start.

    I do not have an office either because they are in renovation but it should come soon hopefully.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard for me to give any advice to the management since I haven't got the chance to know them. However, like I say, my first impression of the company is really good and highly professional. Continue to invest in Assante brand, I think it is the right direction to go in the actual finance world. Assante has a really good image and foundation and you should increase its notoriety.

    Pros

    Office is close to union station

    Cons

    Very bad management. They should consider hiring from outside adopt experience leader from the competitor in order to improve the operations of the company. Be more transparent on the salary range and band. You get to be on the higher range if you know somebody in upper management. Learn how to be fair to the other employee . Stop hiring people who only come in to social and collecting salary .

    Advice to Management

    You need to look up at the other major financial institutions to find their mandates and improve your management system. No change is not good change. We are at 22 century. You need to catch up with the rest of the world.
