    Pros

    Good work environment Established systems Support for community

    Cons

    Lacking in employee engagement Performance appraisal is subject to whims of the bosses. No concrete, measurable KPIs

    Advice to Management

    Work on improving employee appeaisal system- it would be really helpful if Agile practices can be introduced to have increases frequency of employee / manager performance feedback, not just a mid month /yearly cycle.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Sun Life full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's a great place to work for people who like a flexible schedule. Option to work from home and make your own hours. Year end bonus paid out in April. Fairly relaxed environment, you work only 37.5 hours per week, instead of 40, 30 minutes for lunch.

    Cons

    Can be tough to move around, lots of competition for any role posted. Will need to work long hours at month end and quarter end.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to promote more from within the company and set clear paths that will lead to promotion.

    Pros

    Great corporate culture They hire very smart people Many opportunities for growth, advancement and development

    Cons

    Salaries can be lower than market average at times. Average staff age is slightly more mature (not unusual for their industry however)

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent and individual's development pace more quickly. Ask a lot of your staff but also to checkin more often. People managers can use more training
