        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at John Hancock full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        I was able to get out with my sanity intact.

        Cons

        Where do I start? I wish they gave you an option of a negative rating. Their systems have not been upgraded since the creation of computers. I wish I was joking, I'm not sadly. No training provided on their ancient systems. Upper management is laughable and that's being kind. They create budget massive overages on projects and then deflect and push it on the next person. Its amazing how you can be blamed for budget overages...

        Advice to Management

        Update your systems, promote a better work environment and team togetherness, get RID of local leadership and bring in someone that talks to their team not at them. Someone with knowledge of changing trends in real estate and can improve your employee satisfaction. Majority of the reviews on here specifically mentions how bad leadership is. Coincidence? I think not. Time for changes John Hancock.
