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

    Pros

    For majority of businesses, great work-life balance (will be affected by specific department/manager). Great facilities on the waterfront, as well as great location for offices in Copley. Great co-workers/culture. Solid benefits. Big focus on community involvement and sponsorships. Opportunities to advance are ample.

    Cons

    Mostly a siloed corporate structure where many efforts were wasted re-creating best practices of other businesses without sufficient collaboration. Consistency between businesses lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve business unit structures and incentives to promote cross-functional and cross-business collaboration.

    I have been working at John Hancock full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Strong Brand, able to move between divisions, work from home opportunities

    Cons

    Due to a massive restructuring, opportunities to grow are just non-existent, poor salaries (really poor), wrong people managing areas, an inability to deal with poor performers at the management level, one-size-fits-all type management in terms of IT needs (system access and security based on the thought that everyone handles client data when a huge number of employees do not and have different IT needs), staffing (not allowing people to manage small teams even when it makes sense),

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff your areas appropriately! Get rid of poor performers and make people accountable.
