Pros

Stable company -- seems to withstand bad economic times better than peers. The company's risk aversion makes it somewhat of an unexciting place to work for, but contributes to the sense of stability.

Cons

Typical downsides of working for a large corporation -- it often feels that your work doesn't make a difference. The corporate hierarchy is 8-10 levels deep, so a common worker feels very detached from senior management.

Advice to Management

I have every reason to believe that our senior management is highly capable,

    I worked at Manulife full-time

    Pros

    The people are the some of the most intelligent and friendly colleagues I've ever had. The culture felt like a big family.

    Cons

    Long hours and tedious work at times, learning curve in the role is a little steep. Would have appreciated more open and direct communication and interaction with senior members.

    Advice to Management

    More open communication towards junior colleagues. Otherwise, management is doing a fantastic job, I could not have been happier with my experience.
