    Pros

    The benefits are good. Friendly environment to work in and there is job security. Always can take classes at their academy.

    The pay at pacific life isn't as competitive. Overall it's a pretty good company. Don't have much cons to say.

    Pros

    They are big on trying to develop within and to promote within. We try and set up cross training and shadowing as much as possible. My area is nearly always busy which helps the day to day go by.

    Cons

    There is some drama here and there, but if yippy can stay out of it, is a good place to work.

    Pros

    Pacific Life has great benefits and 401k. I love the casual work atmosphere. The hours are great and the management is very laid back.

    Cons

    There is alot of favouritism and it's extremely hard to move up in the company. The HR department doesn't seem to care about changing the atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites and reward the employees that actually care about making the company better.

    I have been working at Pacific Life full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance and benefits. If you have drive you can really stand out from the pack.

    Cons

    It's a place to retire at 40. Many of the technology department staff are dead weight and have little to no drive to improve. Management doesn't know any better to realize how bad it is.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the office more and see how the rest of the world works. We do some good things but we are in danger of being left behind.

    I worked at Pacific Life full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, good people, stability.

    Cons

    Discipline required to power through repetitive and mundane assignments. Unless you are a superstar, or have the energy to remain actively social with management, internal growth is at a glacial pace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your ears and doors open. That's all.
