    I worked at Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work life balance Friendly culture - not as cut-throat as sell side Very interesting work Strong comp package, particularly given work life balance

    Cons

    Location at Yonge and Finch / food options as a result - waste a lot of time traveling to and from downtown People making a lot of money are very "comfortable" and this comfort is institutionally entrenched. Creates a glass ceiling for up and coming high performers. Most groups are "inverted pyramids"

    Advice to Management

    Move downtown Improve talent management processes
