Disappointing. Effort was pointless as people's paths were predetermined.

I worked at Sun Life

Pros

Decent work/life balance. Amiable coworkers. Clean bathrooms.

Cons

Place is run like a sorority with rampant favoritism. Senior management has allowed this to carry on for years on end. Whether you languished or succeeded was, again, predetermined. Opportunities to advance were cut off at the pass, literally. So we can add unethical to the list as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get real and break up the status quo.

    Pros

    Fair benefits though they got cut back over the years. Good work life balance for most

    Cons

    Bad career development. Spent way too much on sales and sponsorships. HR department goes by the book when it benefits them but makes excuses when it doesn't. Badly run and now employees not involved in the decisions are paying for it. Employees that survive the layoff, including the new college leadership people, should take note and get out quick as it will get worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept the blame for your bad decisions, get rid of senior managers who killed the business, and use the money saved to give more to the people you are throwing out on the street, they deserve it more
