I worked at Sun Life full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good benefits, nice clean offices

Cons

Favouritism, if your liked your golden, if not your dead in the water. Work loads to high, very reactive. Senior managers all located at a different location and have no idea what's going on at the other site.

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

    Pros

    Expanding their branding ( a lot of household recognition). Gave a number of perks/promotions to increase productivity.

    Cons

    An unnecessarily complex commission structure and seemed to hire sales managers without any management experience/qualifications. Equated sales prowess with being a good manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the complexity of commission payments. Improve training to sales force staff.
