    Pros

    Over the last 12-18 months, management has been driving home a new initiative to really support their staff - not just in their current roles, but helping develop them to get them where they want to be. The energy is usually very positive and almost everyone is very friendly. On the phones your creativity may be a little limited for regulatory purposes (since this is the financial field after all), but creativity is strongly encouraged when it comes to building training materials, food days, office games, etc. This company also really promotes hiring from within. There is a lot more cross department opportunity than many companies I have seen. The culture and benefits are great!

    Cons

    The company is efficient and there are not a lot of positions for upward mobility into management, if that is your path. People in those positions now like them so much, they rarely leave. It doesn't mean that management positions aren't there, they are just competitively sought.

    Advice to Management

    To senior management - there is more room for more floor supervisors. Staff love the time they get to build relationships with their direct supervisor in a proactive manner, not just in a disciplinary one. A lower supervisor to employee ratio could help this as well as open up more opportunities for growth within. Keep up the positive changes you have already been making though - we ARE noticing!

    Pros

    Pacific Life is a great company to work for, competitive benefits and salaries. The people working here have been employed by Pacific Life for a longer period of time, low personal turnover.

    At times it can be hard to get promoted if your department has managers that are hesitant to do so, regardless of your performance.

    Managment should give more opportunities to people who are adding value to the company.
