    I worked at Canada Life full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are not too bad. Company overall has lots of employees and not much to do. If you want to take rest whole day this is the place. Senior management is respectful and creative.

    Cons

    The junior managers are static in the same position for very long time with little education. Manager was very difficult and seemed to have mental issues. No career opportunities. Disrespectful. Talks down to employees in closed door.

    Advice to Management

    Hire fresh leaders with education who can bring new ideas.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits for vision care, health and dental. The wellness account gives you the opportunity to stay healthy and active. Small, intimate team, not a "call centre" atmosphere, very friendly colleagues, plenty of opportunities to advance in the company and further your education while still working full time.

    Cons

    Long days in a small office. Work/Life balance is a downside. If you don't like the idea of a 9-5 cubicle job, this isn't for you.

    Pros

    Good reputation in the market. Financial Strength and rating gave security to clients over a time when Financial Institutions were collapsing. Overall a progressive company. It was a good company to work for and if you worked well you were well rewarded

    Cons

    I never had a problem with the Company but like in most companies some bad eggs sneak into positions they don't belong. Canada Life was no different!
