I have been working at Sun Life

Pros

work life balance is the main thing - just about everyone is on the same wavelength about this, so it doesn't seem to vary that much by department

Cons

once you hit mid career, opportunities for advancement evaporate
if you're at all ambitious, you'll have one foot out the door

Advice to ManagementAdvice

communication from senior management about recent layoffs was terrible
their ready shoot aim approach has made everyone nervous about both job security and stewardship of the company
platitudes about how talented people are don't help

No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sun Life

    Pros

    decent work/life balance, good benefits. co-workers, for the most part, are nice people to work with. nice large campus with lots of amenitities.

    Cons

    layoffs. no job security; constant reorganization; always being asked to do more with no increase in pay. management stuck on making their numbers, not caring how it gets done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please bring sun life back to glory. as sun life grows bigger, we are falling apart. horrible morale when you are unsure day to day if you have a job tomorrow, and then expected work 110%

    Disappointing. Effort was pointless as people's paths were predetermined.

    I worked at Sun Life

    Pros

    Decent work/life balance. Amiable coworkers. Clean bathrooms.

    Cons

    Place is run like a sorority with rampant favoritism. Senior management has allowed this to carry on for years on end. Whether you languished or succeeded was, again, predetermined. Opportunities to advance were cut off at the pass, literally. So we can add unethical to the list as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real and break up the status quo.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
