I worked at Sun Life full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – As with any large company, there are significant differences between major business units, and some have better reputations than others. Good brand reputation as a result of significant marketing spend, which will be eroded as staff morale continues to plummet.
Cons – Highly patriarchical company, old boys network, many women (not all) who advance based on their looks and willingness to play up to that, men and women who advance by spending their time promoting themselves at the expense of their staff or their own work. In the Individual area, no clear strategic vision, no culture of accountability within the senior management ranks, poor behaviour in clear contradiction of all HR policies ignored or rewarded.
Advice to Senior Management – Others have suggested that senior management doesn't have a clue. On the contrary, they know exactly what they're doing - they behave exactly as they are compensated to behave - which is with a focus on short-term results. It shouldn't surprise anyone that this short-term, results-driven approach supports ad-hoc mass layoffs, expense gap band-aids, and quarterly results at the cost of long term top and bottom line growth.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
