    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 Management

    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.


  2. Poorly managed business with little focus on bottom line

    Pros

    Salaries are at least in line with market median
    Your may enjoy work-life balance depending on your department culture.

    Cons

    Extremely political working environment, leading to high teams turnover.
    Expat denominated management with poor understanding of local business nuances

    Advice to Management

    More sincere employee engagement and communication is required.
    Company is undergoing a euphemistic "Efficiency & Effectiveness" initiative, which is perceived as simply an excuse to cull employees who don't toe the line of his/her manager and to replace with cronies.
