    I have been working at Manulife full-time

    Pros

    Flexible Schedules
    Tech Lounge
    Great Microsoft training classes
    Coworkers

    Cons

    Lack of clear communication and direction from management
    Promotions based on politics not skill sets
    AVP's and directors constantly play the blame game and cost people their jobs to keep their own
    Management is not trustworthy
    Working on trying to figure out how to increase employee morale for 7 years now

    Advice to Management

    Used to be a great company to work for. Investment Division Senior Management should clean house for the AVP's and Directors that don't have the skill sets for their role and that bully and treat employees like animals. There are so many horrific AVP's and Directors in the Investment Division that lack ALL ethics and mistreat employees.

    Pros

    Senior management committed to evolving our company to compete in the digital age by becoming more customer-centric. Opportunities to gain strong experience, growth, and company mobility for those who can drive and implement change.

    Cons

    Resistance to change at the company, while shrinking, is real. Can be frustrating for those that are on board and slows down our progress.

    Stay the course - we are on the right path. Consider honing our priorities so that what we need to achieve is clear to all.
