I worked at Sun Life

Pros

Benefits are OK. Nothing great.

Cons

Do NOT work in the U.S. division!!!! I worked here for five years and the first three were great. Then in 2008 they hired a bunch of Lincoln Financial executives to run the U.S. They have run it into the ground. All they have done is close down businesses and laid off hundreds of people who were there for over 10 years. And when they laid off top executives, almost all were replaced by Lincoln executives who everyone hates. Everyone I know who is still there is miserable, hate their managers, underpaid, overworked and looking for a job. They layoffs have continued and some people were let go right before Christmas, with more on the way. Worst of all, management knows everyone is miserable and is doesn't care. Don't even think about working here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop treating your employees like dirt.

    Pros

    Good place to work overall. Constant education and training. Good location. Frequest feedback through one-on-ones. Decent abount of time off.

    Cons

    To much work for the amount of staff. More should be done to reward less people doing more due to the economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward people for doing more with less. Continue to encourage employees to attend classed and industry conferences. Better pay would be nice too!
