    Pros

    Great downtown Location, Across from City Hall and the Entertainment district, lots of food options and restaurants Easily accessible to the Financial District. Subway Nearby Great for people living within Toronto and the surrounding area Good exposure to Back Office administrative work, understanding the Procedures and how investments Funds are Processed, Movement and distributed from Inbound purchases... from Clients, Businesses and Financial Institutions. Management is not too pushy within Operations (only during busy times) as long as you get your work done, kind of laxed environment. Company culture is welcoming.

    Cons

    **On Contract** Pay is not the greatest, (negotiate) before commiting, - slow to hire additional staff where it is needed, -Transitional or movement of staff is slow - They operate on Cost cutting/savings, Allot off cross training and "coverage" - Expect to work on "Queues" within operations - Moral feels mixed based on different departments - Looking for people with long term commitments before... acquiring "full time" status

    Advice to Management

    if you want to maintain your contract staff, provide better compensation and incentives for people willing to stay. - Cost savings will only get you so far before people starting becoming discontented or seeing the Company's approach. If you want to be the #1 Mutual fund dealer, invest in your Staff. Boost morale.
