Symcor


http://www.symcor.com/

Size of company: Large (More than 500 employees)

Industry: Bank, Insurance, Financial services

  • company has massive potential but needs to develop a plan or strategy to know what it wants to be. Presently little or no direction from CEO or CFO - very stagnant Senior Leadership. One bright spot - the Technology group is strong under new leadership and CIO is trying to make a difference. Enabling services group [HR, Finance] are abysmal and definite impediment to growth. Many company leaders are nearing retirement so company is frozen because all critical or risky decisions being deferred. Best areas to work in are Print Division or Corporate Applications - both areas seem to be implementing many interesting projects and are engaged and interested in moving forward.

".... one of the best in Canada..." - that made me cringe. Say a prayer for Canada.

Regarding Comment 1 - The CIO was brilliant ? Really ? Which company have you been working for. His plan was to go cheap by bringing offshore resources onshore which costs us twice as much. Now we are finally doing it right and reversing his direction. The company will be better for it. Sunlife ....watch out, cuts are a coming your way !

The CIO was brilliant. One of the best in Canada...that's why he has just left. Now Symcor is in real trouble. The new CIO is an ex IBM'er and the CFO and CEO are pathetic. - Current Employee
