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

    Too many people - easy to get lost in the shuffle. If you're looking for career advancement go somewhere smaller
