I worked at Sun Life full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great co workers, fair pay. A good place to start at the bottom and grow. Treated people very fairly when they laid off 800 people.

Cons

Management was out of touch with upper management (Toronto). There was little to no opportunity to advance for some one mid career.

    I worked at Sun Life as a contractor

    Pros

    Honestly, I can't think of any reason I'd ever suggest an intelligent person to go work there.

    Cons

    I was at Sun Life on a short contract, and was very disappointed with my experience. I was worked to the bone, never allowed my legal breaks and was questioned when I left to take even a half-hour lunch. My experience and expertise was constantly questioned, and I felt like asking why they even hired me.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Canada: come to the US. Evaluate your management - from AVP's to general managers. You will find major problems. Moral is very low; something needs to be done.


  2. "Lame"

    I have been working at Sun Life full-time

    Pros

    I would say that there's a lot of excitement in the beginning. Lots of training and such. However one quickly realizes that the company is a horrible place to work.

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs and no room for growth. Employees are treated like cattle, not people. Not happy.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip.
