Pros

bright intelligent people
if you are vocal, assertive, and you align yourself with the right people you could have a good future with the company
benefits are not bad
international company with a lot of rich history

Cons

cannot trust senior management, although they may be saying one thing, their actions are totally different
very competitive environment so you see a lot of dirty politics
employee recognition practices are not fair. promotions are difficult and given to a select and favoured few.
you'll find bitter and unhappy people throughout the company
actuaries are automatically promoted to at least AVP level (may be seen as a pro if you're an actuary)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

be open and transparent, focus on developing talent and loyalty to the company, remember the pride values, and try to eminate the practices that dominic left behind.

    I worked at Manulife Financial

    Pros

    Worked in the insurance side. It feels very stable. Very minimal firing event in economic downturn (If i have ever heard of one or two). The company is a prudent (or you can say, conservative) one.

    Cons

    The culture can be quite monotonic. Do not expect a steep promotion ladder. some would stay quite

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can be a bit more active in promoting its professional brand image.
