I worked at Standard Life full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Plenty of opportunity to move around within the organization, resources are in place to support career development. Managers are supportive of external training. Performance reviews occur annually.

Cons

Comp is average at best, benefits are nothing to write home about. Management could do a better job of connecting with mid-level staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to be more hands-off on projects of average importance; too much micro-management takes place in instances where it is really unnecessary.

    I have been working at Standard Life full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most departments have fun and hard working employees. Standard Life also cares greatly about you as an individual. Management is very approachable and the company has lots of events.

    Cons

    Sometimes, management does not see talent internally and looks elsewhere. Also, it would be great to get more detailed information about what options are available to invest in and the benefits of working at SL.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Age is not a factor for some departments. If an employee adds value to the company, they should be recognized.
