    I worked at Manulife Financial full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Management recognized talent and is genuinely interested in promoting personal and career growth. I worked in 3 different jobs at Manulife and my superiors and team in each case were excellent.

    Cons

    At the time there was significant redundancy within the company. Since I worked there I know that senior management has reduced a significant amount of that redundancy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing and think long-term.
