    Pros

    Great benefits and a very strong company. The company itself is well known and has lots of job opportunities within. Certain divisions have a "family style" atmosphere. The work / home life split is very appealing to a family oriented person.

    Cons

    Upper management has a bit of tunnel vision. Penny pinching strategies lead to less production from staff. A bit of a "good 'ol boys club". Networking within the company is absolutely necessary in order to advance. Incentive compensation could be improved. At one point 1/3rd of the staff wasn't receiving any incentive comp by design, which changed the following year.

    Advice to Management

    Take more heed from your employees, especially the ones you don't have direct contact with. Don't try to fit the square peg through the round hole.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Name recognition Location Great cafeteria. Good people at the worker bee level.

    Cons

    Manulife is trying to nuetraliza or move out the John Hancock lifers. It's 4 years later and they decide to commit to Lotus notes because Manulife uses it. The billing and scheduling are not in sync after 4 years. The bulding at 601 is a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Give in to Manulife or get a new job! Stop pretending like your part of the development of this company, game is over.
    Network security is non-existent and most people look for a job while on the job at JH.
    Remember the dumb rich kids who went to good schools despite their grades? This is where they end up.
