      I worked at Sun Life full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great work-life balance, bonus, and benefits

      Cons

      They promote people into management positions for the sake of a promotion but these folks are not empowered to actually manage. It's just a pay raise and title change with no real authority or real management skills. They also don't properly train new managers which could present a liability. It really seems like employees are just in a race to keep themselves relevant so they aren't caught up in the yearly round of layoffs.

      Advice to Management

      Do not promote folks just because they can demonstrate how good they are at their jobs. Take time to actually train new managers on how to lead otherwise you may have huge HR issues in the future.
