    I have been working at Manulife full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Collegial, generally stable environment, interesting challenges and assignments. Overall a solid place to work. But it is team and group specific. New CEO has done a good job in making employees feel valued.

    Cons

    Groups are often silo'd, old school hierarchy culture from certain groups and people.
