    Pros

    -Friendly Co-Workers
    -Good Location
    -Free basic membership

    Cons

    -Very Political. There is a small circle of friends who came from Allstate and if you are not within that circle you will not get promoted. Doesn't matter your work, it is who you know.
    -No innovation, no opportunity to grow, low salary.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who knows what they are doing.

    I have been working at CAA South Central Ontario full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CAA South Central Ontario is a good place to work. The job is challenging but not impossible, the people hired are often at the top of their field and are able to provide good collaborative work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately some of the people working here have been here a while and as such can show apprehension to trying new things. A barrier, but not impossible to work around.

    Advice to Management

    Take chances with new ideas, trust the people that you're bringing in. Always hire people that have different perspectives.
