    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.
