    I have been working at John Hancock full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    John Hancock is a great brand and a terrific place to work. The people and talent are strong, and leadership is visible and approachable. The company has been doing a good job in trying to communicate frequently and with transparency so people know what is going on.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems that we are trying to do too much all at the same time. Also, the matrix reporting can be confusing.

    Interview

    The HR Representative from JHI got in touch with me on Linkedin and after several back and forth emails, she arranged a screening call at the end of December. At the end of the call I posed on a question on sponsoring visa and permanent sponsorship, it seemed this question irked her and she went on this topic for the next 1 minute or so and then insisted that she will arrange another meetup by the following week. Its been almost 2 months now and I have not received any updates so far. I spoke to the HR Recruiter from JHI and she promised that she will pass on the feedback. I am still awaiting communication on this. Overall, I am extremely disappointed with the whole process and gives me a good insight on how JHI works. I would recommend staying away.
