    I have been working at Manulife Financial

    Pros

    - colleagues are intellegent, well educated and committed to excellence on the job
    - younger generation have innovative ideas to help turn the company around

    Cons

    - too beurocratic
    - distribution systems are based on traditional channels- need to develop new ways of doing business
    - too cost focussed
    - no consistent in flexibile work arrangements
    - no employee advocates/voice within the company
    - the leadership team responsible for poor business decisions with long term consequences to our company profitability remain employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - watch the movie "Too Big to Fail"
    - respect the performance contributions of your employees
    - hire executives with strong leadership skills and reward them for demonstrating this effectively on the job- HR should be aggressively focussing on making that happen if they want to keep and hire the best.
