I worked at John Hancock full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Company has great brand name recognition. They spend a lot of money training their employees.

Cons

They just really try to overwork their employees and when I was there management was a mess. Typical setup of managers typically getting in the way of getting business done. They had a horrible metric system that gave dumb arbitrary numbers that you had to hit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the goals of the wholesalers exactly the same as management thus both will have an incentive to align their goals.
