    I have been working at Sun Life full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Most of the staff are good people. Clean atmosphere.

    Cons

    Dog eat Dog. A lot of favouritism, if your liked your golden, if your not liked your doomed. No mentorship given to employees to assist with advancement. Management need to practice what they preach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved with your staff, in all locations. Shouldn't always be all work no play. Show appreciation to your staff. Sometimes employees need more than. "Great Job Guys"

    I worked at Sun Life full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Competitive salary in line with other large organizations

    Cons

    Poor senior and middle management leadership.
    Individual side of the business is like working for a prison.
    Employees in senior management who have been with the company for a long time are unsupportive to new employees.
    No on site parking at Waterloo location, you have to take a shuttle bus to get to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide actual training to new employees and invest some time in working with new staff to not set them up for failure.
    Look at some of your senior management in individual as some of them are not doing any work but pass off their employees work as their own!
