    I worked at Manulife 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 Management

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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours (moreso depending on your manager), but people can come in as late as 10-10:30. All they request is that you complete your 7.5 hours a day. They pay very decently and they treat acturial students very well (reimbursements for exams, time off for studying etc)

    Cons

    From what I felt, the atmosphere is a little dull. Not too much friendliness or contact throughout the office. When I worked there and attended an office social, I realized that a lot of the long-time employees working in the same department didn't even know a lot of the other people's names.

    Advice to Management

    perhaps encourage more office social events, or a more lively atmosphere.
