    Pros

    Manulife is ahead of thew curve when it comes to it employees. All employees are provided with laptops so that each one can take advantage of work from home policies. Desks in the newly renovated head office are adjustable so you can sit and stand throughout the day. The staff were great and the communication on their intranet was up to date and informative.

    Cons

    There were no cons to working for Manulife

    Pros

    Challenging work, lots of work/ life balance, exciting times at Manulife.

    Cons

    Recent org design changes have led to some lack of resources and poor clarity of roles. This is expected given the changes the company is undergoing as they integrate the business of Standard Life into the Manulife organization.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain focus on communicating change... This is already a priority.


  9. Stable but unexciting place to work for.

    Pros

    Stable company -- seems to withstand bad economic times better than peers. The company's risk aversion makes it somewhat of an unexciting place to work for, but contributes to the sense of stability.

    Cons

    Typical downsides of working for a large corporation -- it often feels that your work doesn't make a difference. The corporate hierarchy is 8-10 levels deep, so a common worker feels very detached from senior management.

    Advice to Management

    I have every reason to believe that our senior management is highly capable,
