    I have been working at OMERS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are awesome. League account, spotlight recognition program, employee discounts and so much more. Work is super flexible and the team you get to work with are really welcoming and genuinely caring.

    Cons

    Pension deductions sometimes take a toll. The company is trying to bring too much change in too little time which sometimes ends up bringing issues that are hectic and tiring to handle but that happens in any organization that plans to grow at this speed.

    I worked at OMERS full-time

    Pros

    You can focus your work on doing something great - helping pensioners

    Cons

    The focus is on the who will be the new CEO. Lots of jockeying for advancement with the President who is likely to become CEO. President is fake. Not a man of principles and surrounds himself with the same.

    I have been working at OMERS full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people who do the work are great, and you can't beat the benefits and, of course, the pension

    Cons

    Senior management shows no respect or appreciation for their people. It's not the place it once was and it's a shame to see so many great people leave. There is a recent trend in getting rid of longer term/older employees which must be an HR nightmare. I've been waiting for the lawsuits!

    I have been working at OMERS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, Snacks in the office and coffe. Monthly social events with free alcohol.

    Cons

    You are hired if you know some one on the Management team or higher, Even better related to some one high up ( just look at the pictures of the company in this website and you will see at least a couple people related to managment ). No experience in the pension industry or related education required to take a well paid position, but beware you dont get on the wrong side of the VPs or SVPs because you will join the list of the so call voluntary retirement package program. No opportunity to advance or even have the option to apply since is never posted and promotions are hand pick base on likeability For one of the largets companys in Canada it runs the contact center like a pilot with a group of unexperience family members. It seems like there is no concern of family members working together and leaving other people afraid to bring up concerns with fear for job in retaliation. HR will continue to support this conflict of interest.
