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

    Pros

    Good Pay Work Life Balance Free Food but no cafeteria except few wending machines Its a retirement company Don't come if you are coming from service industry like Accenture, Cognizant, Capgemini etc- you will get nothing to learn.

    Cons

    OK so Sunlife ASCI is captive unit so very much cost sensitive. eg. yearly parties without drinks ASCI Leadership is not competent except few handful leaders Associate Director & Director level person in ASCI is not any better than a Manager level resource of companies like TCS, Accenture, Cognizant, Capgemini etc and even inferior than Associate and Senior Associates of Deloitte, Mckinsey and PwC etc. IT infrastructure...

    Advice to Management

    Please get some good visionary, smart people who are aware of whats happening in market and industry. Current leadership is dull, boring, lethargic , stereotype and of no good use.

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

    Pros

    Large company, with potential for exposure

    Cons

    Too many "lifers" who say, it has always been this way, that are reluctant to change. And rather than looking at themselves to promote change, they blame the younger generation for not having worked there as long as them so they couldn't possible know how to do/fix a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Be innovative and strategic.
