    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at The Co-operators full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some agents offer benefits, 3 weeks vacation, lots of agents offices in the city. Very easy to get a job.

    Cons

    Where do I start, some agents are very unethical and issue policies with wrong postal codes just to lower premium and to sell life as they need to meet their life targets.Staff is uneducated and will give out wrong info to clients about their coverages when the advisor should be the professional. DMs and ADMs are not there to assist and listen to staff. Continued education is not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your agents and their staff. Very little knowledge and make huge mistakes on clients policies.
