I have been working at John Hancock full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent Work Life Balance and career opportunties. Engagement survey sent every two years; management responds well. Beautifful building and work enviroment in South Boston. Meaningful work; employees feel they are contributing to the success of the organization. Good balance of diversity amongst employees; not so much at sr. leadership.

Cons

1) The Back Bay offices are gray and non motivating. Management will not put money into creating a colloborative work environment.
2) Poor planning on deliverables between John Hancock and Manulife;alot of duplication.

Advice to Management

Need to do a better job at planning the priorities of the company.

    I worked at John Hancock full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I spent several years working for John Hancock Mutual Funds. It was an amazing training ground for a sales rep. They provided me every opportunity to learn more about the industry and hone my selling and presenting skills. I highly recommend either working there or doing business with them.

    Cons

    Due to the fact that it is a great place to work not many people leave which does not provide a tremendous amount of opportunity for promotion. Also, they are a very conservative company that can at times feel a bit "stuffy". Very small faults for all the positive things I feel about the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue with the Leadership Committee which provided key employees direct contact with senior management.
