Former Employee - Sales Manager in Boston, MA
Former Employee - Sales Manager in Boston, MA
No opinion of CEO

Pros

SunLife used to have a great practice of hiring from within.
The compensation can be in the top quartile if your boss likes you.
You will end up with may friends at the company, as opposed to just co-workers.

Cons

In the past 12-18 months there has been a major shift at the senior management level, and roughly 20-40% of every dept has been laid off...only to be replaced with friends of the new senior management team.

Advice to Management

Create a competitive product, and retain a quality sales force to distribute it. Realize that your veteran/experienced employees are going to want the same treatment, if not better than your new hires/friends.
