    Pros

    Depending on who your Manager is, there is a lot of flexibility. The company does a great job in engaging in employee development and training. The benefits are okay.

    Cons

    If you get a Manager that is not flexible and/or stuck in old ways, the experience at this Company can be quite different, but to be fair that is true at any place of employment.

    I have been working at Sun Life full-time

    Pros

    The employees are genuinely nice and friendly. There are pockets of very talented individuals and if you can find the good teams they're worth joining.

    Cons

    The entire US company is going thru change yet again. It never ends and the constant restructuring has at this point worn out both the employee morale and wallet.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the fads and magic beans and get back to basics. Let employees do what they do best and stop throwing darts in the dark. It's exhausting and unproductive.

    Pros

    Okay for a paycheck.

    Cons

    Old company. Happiness seems to depend a lot on one's manager.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees if management is able to effect change in order to improve working environment. If not, why ask?

    Pros

    Extremely supportive company with great benefits. Allows for people to grow personally and professionally with a great work life balance.

    Cons

    Don't generally promote from outside, so it is a company one would like to enter early in their career. They provide enough entry level opportunities to keep many promotions internal.

    Advice to Management

    Look to recruit more candidates and trim down more. Also try to spread recruiting throughout the east coast and mid west. Different perspectives and backgrounds can create better work environment and more thought processes.

    I have been working at Sun Life full-time

    Pros

    I have worked for other large (even bigger than Sun Life) Fortune 100 insurance and financial companies, and none of the companies have benefit packages close to what Sun Life offers. Employee benefits is SOLELY their business in the U.S., so it's no surprise the superior benefits that are offered. For those who claim salaries are not competitive; you get what you negotiate. I worked for a company praised for "competitive" salaries, and I make 25% more at Sun Life.

    Cons

    The U.S. headquarters is not a fancy building. To be named as the U.S. headquarters, I expected a top-notch facility.

    Advice to Management

    Talented, driven, and sharp employees is the key to a successful, blooming business. Keep the hardworking employees by continuing to promote a healthy work/life balance, creating endless development opportunities, and never be afraid to leave your nice, fancy office, and interact with us.

    Pros

    Great benefits, generous vacation, onsite parking. Had some great managers over the years that allowed me the freedom to participate and learn skills that I wanted for myself. Flexible times to start work.

    Cons

    Not much of a career path as far as moving up. Some people in certain departments are not professional. Not easily accessible by public transportation.

    Advice to Management

    Look for opportunities for individuals to better themselves. IE mentor or career paths in certain departments or across the board
