    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.

    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
