    I have been working at Manulife full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible working arrangement, maternity/paternity leave, 401K, commuter benefits, great location in the Back Bay, strong leadership and management, tuition reimbursement, and community involvement. Potential opportunities in the long run depending on which group you are in.

    Cons

    Depending on which group and department you are in, you may really enjoy or hate your job, or feel neutral about it. The organization has been going through a lot of changes, especially in the IT/Technology space. This is a great initiative since they are now aligning their technological space with the current times. However, the changes may be difficult for some to handle or adjust to. Functional roles are being realigned or consolidated with other groups. This can be hard for those that have been here for 15+ years, that have been doing the same job over the past years and can't understand or adapt to changes, as opposed to those that are fairly new to the organization. The changes can be constant and is now considered as the "norm." I think it's a good place to be in, overall, since the benefits are great and you'll be able to meet some pretty amazing colleagues, but you'll have to adjust to the perspective that changes are inevitable, constant, and challenging.

    Advice to Management

    I think management is doing a good job with the transparency and communication on these changes. It would also be helpful to assign SME to specific projects that will have a direct impact to their team's roles/functions. It's not always a pretty picture to be told how changes will impact them, without allowing them to have a say or suggestion. Not all of the consultants that are hired will fully understand the job function, nuances, and challenges faced everyday. Keeping the lights on is also critical for the business.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Manulife (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Solid Interview, with good questions asked and the interviewers were really nice. They gave a good description of what Manulife is really about and also made me excited to work for the company.
