Lots of possibilities for promotions
Been there a year and worked in collab with various departments. The culture is to value competency and versatility. Put the best people in the best roles

Fun place to work, good benefits, nice people, downtown so you have to pay for parking. But other than that very organized and senior management goes above and beyon

They suck the life out of you and then throw you to the curb
Worked with them over 10 years and they sucked every ounce of energy and life out of everyone there. Employees who give more than required are used and then dumped. They talk work life balance and the workload constantly forces you to work additional hours. When you speak up to try and help the team they pretend to listen and then get tired of listening to you and they kick you to the curb with no explanation. Senior management acts like a horrible clique. Significantly understaffed all the time. You are only a number here until they don’t want you anymore.
ProsSalary, benefits
ConsTerrible toxic work environment. The company is so big you will only ever be a number.

Not what they say they are
The company tells their employees that they are the most important thing about it, but they are not. Company doesn’t promote the individuals with the most skills and experience, the company only promotes those that suck up to management. Working at the company could be good if they had knowledgeable people in the right places in management and the company told the truth about advancement opportunities (I.e. there are none if you have skills).
ProsOccasional giveaways to make up for the subpar salaries.
ConsToo many list but management and culture are the top

Value it's employees, great benefits, opportunities for growth
I absolutely enjoyed working for Intact. Only reason I left is to change careers in a different industry. They really invest in their employees and support their growth Would recommend for anyone.

Questions and answers about Intact

Will they call after interview if either it s negative or positive result ?
Asked Jul. 10, 2017
I know somebody who did an interview with them and had the proper insurance license already. That company only had to train the person with their products and it took them 2 weeks to reject the person without even giving an explanation. I would think that if u have the license why not hire that person instead of hiring unlicensed person and then training them. Invariably the same position opens up again because the person they hired did not pass the license test.

I had 3 interviews. One on the phone , one in person and one video interview.... Each time I send a thank you note, waiting for the next step. And then, nothing, not even an email saying that I was not selected, I mean, after 3 interviews, they could at least send an email.
