    I have been working at Farm Credit Canada full-time

    Pros

    - stable environment, changes are methodically introduced
    - management takes a supportive role
    - excellent corporate brand support

    Cons

    - recent OSFI review has brought in policies which make us act more like the chartered banks,
    - lending staff lost discretionary loan approvals and rate adjustments
    - career opportunities require a family relocation
    - holding tight on increasing staff in the field while workloads and compliance efforts have greatly increased, due mainly to excessive hiring of non essential head office staff.

    Advice to Management

    - former peer support groups held face-to-face meetings which were extremely valuable in building internal relationships and training staff.
    - New knowledge network has excellent material but we have lost the positives of peer relationship building.
    - reducing annual sales conferences also reduces internal relationship building

    Neutral Outlook

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great benefits, most coworkers are good

    Cons

    If you are a hard worker, be prepared to be taken advantage of while others coast. They used to be so great at putting employees first but that has started to slide since about 2013. Now it's terrible. They promoted a terrible COO and are promoting managers that have no business managing people.

    Advice to Management

    Actually do something with the employee satisfaction surveys! When the management scores are garbage, there is a reason. Don't fire the employees in that area, get rid of the managers!

    I worked at Farm Credit Canada (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent suite of training courses
    Great brand and marketing support, centralized loan processing and loan admin support
    Purposeful and structured culture of accountability

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement in the field at that time - it appears to have changed
    Management structure in the field fractured with office personnel reporting to 3 different managers

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the front line Relationship Managers to avoid burnou

    Pros

    Great employee culture, good benefits, employee matching pension plans, above average salary, 3-5 weeks vacation depending on seniority, annual health spending account.

    Cons

    Farm Credit Canada is a government crown corporation and as a result has more strict policies compared to private organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the employee experience and hiring great people.

    I have been working at Farm Credit Canada full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, pay & benefits. Enjoy the benefits of a large corporation such as adequate budgeting for projects and specialization by role. Also, since the company has grown rapidly over the last few years, it still maintains some benefits of a small company.

    Cons

    Company is a Federal Crown Corporation. When it was small, it could kinda fly under the radar, but as a larger player in the financial markets, the organization seems to be moving towards a more government department focused model.

    Advice to Management

    You're all doing a great job, keep it up!
