I have been working at Manulife Financial full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Global organization, bonuses paid for past 10 years, salaries in line with market, ethical corporate citizen, internal and external training encouraged

Cons

Employees left wondering about their future, large company = lots of bureaucracy, projects go on indefinitely, uncertain N. American market for insurance and jobs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although yearly employee satisfaction surveys are administered, no action on recommendations is taken. Management needs to open up to its employees.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Manulife Financial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good industry experience. Opportunities to work from home are available. The flex center usually has a desk open. There are also a lot of volunteer opportunities.

    Cons

    Outsourcing. Manulife bought the insurance arm and is laying the State side workforce off in droves. Growth is political like many large companies, but depending on what department you start in, growth opportunities can be scarce no matter how savvy you are networking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more training classes and promote lateral and upward movement within the company.
