    Company OSFI compliance impact

    Jun 2, 2015 - Anonymous Employee in Ontario, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    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.

    Great all arounder. You'll be happy, as challenged as you want to be, and stable

    Apr 8, 2022 - Software Developer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits in line with the expectations of the job. Solid work-life balance. People who are enjoyable to work with for the most part. Cultivated company culture that is actually useful for working through issues and letting employees drive improvements to their work processes. More forward thinking than most crown corps.

    Cons

    Dealing with some legacy systems, though the tech stack is modernizing Not the most competitive for developer wages if you are willing to work harder to go somewhere else

    Used to be better...

    Aug 23, 2021 - Senior Developer in Regina, SK
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Great direct managers (YMMV). They truly care - Great benefits - Decent pay for tech industry. Above average for other federal crown corps I'd guess - Amazing culture (but keep reading to the cons) - The people are awesome and friendly - Best work life balance I've experienced so far

    Cons

    - It's not the best place to be if you're an advanced tech professional. The tech stack is still kind of old and the IT division quite disorganized. Leaders (senior and EMT) are not very knowledgeable about the world of technology in general so decisions made are not always in the best interest of the tech teams or the future of tech at the company - IT is very understaffed for what is expected of them. The current staff is very smart and capable, but too much is expected of them... see my first point about leadership not understanding technology - The culture is great, but sometimes it can feel cult ish and contrived. True feelings are often hidden by some to fit in to the "yes" culture. If you professionally disagree with a process or decision, it's often seen as being against the culture of "being all in". There are worse companies out there, but FCC is not as perfect as it's made to sound when you first join
