    Pros

    Good benefits and training opportunities. Great opportunities to continue your education Great location by Union Station and trains. Hybrid work environment and very flexible work hours. A good place to learn about the finance industry.

    Cons

    Not innovative and slow to change. Same senior staff who aren't open to change, narrow-minded and cliquey. They are trying to make some changes but time will tell if it is just lip service. Security is ridiculously tight. Harsh environment if you are an innovative person.

    Benefits are great, flexible work schedule, great collegial environment with very helpful coworkers. Management is willing to listen and make reasonable adjustments based on employee's concerns. Structured training when one starts working and emphasis put on further training for everyone. Great culture. A focus on diversity before it became a hot topic.

    Currently experiencing a lot of turnover at lower levels leading to heavy workloads. The COVID work from home policy has changed a few times. Promotion after supervisor position may depend on available positions.

    A lot of Office politics

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Benefits are very good. - good start to a career in compliance

    Cons

    - office politics in upper management will prevent you from moving up, especially because upper management are all friends and only take the feedback from their friends. - managers will dump alot of work on you and expect it to be done in a short time frame, which leads to long hours past the normal working hours (no overtime pay) - they listen to your concerns but don’t take any action upon it. - big learning curve and will sometimes will get criticized for asking questions.
