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

Pros

Flexible work/life balance where people felt comfortable leaving early or coming in late if they needed to attend to personal business. Free parking and self-contained campus.

Cons

Awful morale. They tend to keep people around who are terrible employees because they are afraid of getting rid of them. In all my years, I have never seen an environment where people could basically get away with anything and not have consequences. Everyone walks around expecting the place to be closed at any time. Horrible brand recognition where "no one still knows your name." No opportunity at all for advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Corporate structure and environment in Canada is completely different from US. Need to work on US workplace and morale, if you want to continue operating in the US.
