I worked at Brookfield Asset Management full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Laid back and friendly senior management.
Helpful and hard working colleagues.

Cons

Too Toronto / North America centric.
Corporation is still run like a small club controlled by the senior Managing Directors, and not like a Fortune 500 / 1000 company.

Advice to Management

Trust the locals when you are looking at overseas markets.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Big name company in the relocation field. An asset to your resume. Comfortable, airy office. Subsidized cafeteria. Good benefits. Promotes from within.

    Cons

    Badly managed work flow. Low employee morale in my department which had obviously been ongoing and unaddressed for a long time. Poorly designed training program.

    Advice to Management

    Stay more in touch with front line employees and don't allow problems to fester until they escalate into major issues.


  2. "Good place to get experience and then move on"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good exposure to many accounting scenarios and getting your feet wet

    Cons

    No internal movement, even if there are postings they don't poach from each other, so you will have to stay where you are or get promoted high enough in senior management to make your own way. Everyone in management are men, except HR...they poach extensively from Deloitte and PwC...everyone else takes a back seat

    Advice to Management

    You must look into retention strategies if you don't want your employees to see you as a stepping stone. Invest in those you want to stay and promote internal movement and promotions. Workplace gender equality should really be reviewed
