    Pros

    My manager was great and that is about it - oh and location nice too and nothing else but I have space to fill

    Cons

    If you don't follow the old ways and try and innovate they don't like it, retaliatory lead who bullied me and who knows if he was punished, work not challenging, antiquated methods and people who won't share knowledge to retain their jobs and leaves you unable to perform yours, create drama so they can blame you for it

    Advice to Management

    Fire bullying employees who tell lies about you and embrace being in the 21st century

    Great culture. Awesome work-life balance. Overtime is offered if necessary. I love the people I work with as well. I am allowed to work from home a couple days which helps because I live pretty far away.

    I worked at Sun Life (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Location - near 128/95 intersection, good for commuters in the suburbs. Cafeteria and gym on campus. Great health and wellness programs. 401K match increases with longevity.

    Cons

    US President changes every ~3 years, followed by portions of management team. There is not enough stability to choose a strategy and carry it out, hence it is a very unstable work environment. Every year (for the last 10) everyone expects another round of layoffs. Minimal promotions from within, minimal job growth or job mobility.
