I have been working at Manulife Financial

Pros

Decent vacation time to start, lots of different paths to choose from (individual life, group benefits and wealth management, to name a few)

Cons

There is a lot of turnover. I don't know who has posted such glowing reviews, they certainly aren't from my area. People with the least amount of experience are promoted over people with the most knowledge, and there is a lot of work being moved overseas, so for the majority of employees, this is not a company to retire with, as your job is more likely than not going to be outsourced at some point. Our shares tanked 2 years ago, and seem to have never recovered.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote the right people, stop with the friends and relatives bit. Consider experience a benefit, not a liability.
