    I worked at Canada Life (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with great people. Mangers where ok. Good location for people outside of London. Directors always had an open door and happy to listen.

    Pay well below the going rate. Little to no progression internally. No real care to retain employees and didnt allow people to grow there careers.

    I worked at Canada Life full-time

    Pros

    Pseudo "family of workers" environment
    Employee social club events
    Easy to find building
    Honestly, it is difficult to find pros for this company

    Cons

    Extreme culture of bullying
    Nepotism - in my department, my fast-rising line manager was dating the son of the department manager (who also worked there)
    Seriously, a very, very, VERY serious bullying and harassment problem
    Witnessed first-hand inappropriate borderline sexual-harassment behaviour towards a young temp worker
    Very, very poor training
    Childish, inappropriate behaviour by management
    Complaints not taken seriously
    Poor behaviour towards new members
    Unfriendly staff
    Clique-y behaviour
    Backwards attitude to mental health
    Management will try and bully staff into tears
    High staff turnover
    Poor confidentiality - management gave out personal information about me after I left, such as personal address and phone number, to other members of staff

    Advice to Management

    There are many, many issues that need to be fixed in the Potter's Bar branch, but the culture of bullying is out of control (mainly management level) and I was very alarmed by my personal information being handed out without my consent once I had left.

    I worked at Canada Life full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are not too bad. Company overall has lots of employees and not much to do. If you want to take rest whole day this is the place. Senior management is respectful and creative.

    Cons

    The junior managers are static in the same position for very long time with little education. Manager was very difficult and seemed to have mental issues. No career opportunities. Disrespectful. Talks down to employees in closed door.

    Advice to Management

    Hire fresh leaders with education who can bring new ideas.
