    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Great co-workers for the most part. Interesting work. Good benefits and time off policy. Great commitment to social causes.

    Cons

    Horrible employee development, at least in my area. Very political atmosphere. Very vertical and traditional approach to management. No real employee empowerment...new executive management promised a flattening of the organization and more empowerment. Never happened

    Pros

    Sun Life is a great place to work, with great benefits and lots of opportunities for career growth. The people are wonderful and the atmosphere is like a family setting. Great collaboration among teams and management allowing individuals to excel and grow.

    Cons

    Laid off 30% of staff this year and lost a lot of talented employees in the process. The company politics can be frustrating and challenging in getting things done.

    Advice to Management

    Realizing that its the bottom dollar vs retaining talented and experienced employees is your goals, you lost a lot of wonderful people in the layoffs that would off actually saved you money in the long run.
