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

    I worked at Sun Life

    Pros

    decent work/life balance, good benefits. co-workers, for the most part, are nice people to work with. nice large campus with lots of amenitities.

    Cons

    layoffs. no job security; constant reorganization; always being asked to do more with no increase in pay. management stuck on making their numbers, not caring how it gets done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please bring sun life back to glory. as sun life grows bigger, we are falling apart. horrible morale when you are unsure day to day if you have a job tomorrow, and then expected work 110%

    I worked at Sun Life

    Pros

    I found the people there to be very generous with their knowledge and time. It was easy to learn how the company worked in each business. The size of the group in Wellesley was big enough to provide a lot of opportunity and diversity, but also small enough to retain a small company feel and energy.

    Cons

    I don't particularly like working in an office park environment. There is nothing around to walk to during lunch. It feels somewhat insulated. If you do have to leave at 4-5PM, get ready to wait in line for up to 1/2 hour just to leave the facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to enocourage sharing of knowlehow around how the company works through the Finance meetings and other learning sessions. The best training comes from internal people who are able to take complex subjects and explain them in a very straight forward and simple manner.
