Former Employee - Unable to Say With Jeopardizing Who I Am in Halifax, NS (Canada)

I worked at Manulife Financial full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Stock options, 3 weeks vacation at onset of job, gym, parking.

Cons

Don't promote from within, very political, play the game and you will get ahead. They don't like you going against the grain, questioning anything.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within - you preach it but don't practice it. You have lost alot of valuable employees, not due to restructuring but because you didn't value them. They have gone to your main competitor SunLife.
