I worked at Sun Life full-time (more than an year)

Pros

none unless you enjoy working alone on in a sales-is-everything environment

Cons

is a pure sales role, do not be fooled by its vague relations to financial planning or investments, it is glorified retail sales

advisors who survive more than 2 years are few and far between.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

there is a reason people do not respect insurance people, and while insurance is your business, your tactics do not bring confidence to the marketplace.

    Pros

    People - there are many solid people throughout the organization

    Cons

    Politics - too much politics, which takes away from getting best work done and in keeping best people motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace new ideas, people. Practice what you teach re HR policies - especially in ensuring feedback from management is in real time and is meaningful. Tenured employees need to be challenged and balanced with new employees and new ideas. The "way its always been done" is not sufficient.
