    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sun Life full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work life balance and respect for personal time.

    Cons

    Too much process to move any of the worthwhile efforts forward. Great place to keep head down and do the work your told to do as long as you don’t mind it not going anywhere. Little to no career advancement, promotions seem to go to the typical politically connected talkers instead of the actual doers.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is lacking direction, too much talking about issues and not enough accountability or support.
