    Good reputation in the market. Financial Strength and rating gave security to clients over a time when Financial Institutions were collapsing. Overall a progressive company. It was a good company to work for and if you worked well you were well rewarded

    Cons

    I never had a problem with the Company but like in most companies some bad eggs sneak into positions they don't belong. Canada Life was no different!
