I believe Sun Life is really bit on work life balance and is capable of providing that for their employees. It really helps you excel in your job and be able to be present in your home life. The workplace culture is great its just more of a corporate environment therefore if you are young it might not be the first ideal job if your seeking those Friday nights team events or beer on tap.
State of the art building at 1 York with cutting edge progressive agile working environment, very supportive management and amazing continuous improvement mind set of teams.
Agile working environment, continuous improvement culture

I enjoy my time at Sun Life.... no one draped over your shoulder ... ran my own schedule and was self motivated. It was a typical corporation with the typical corporate feel.... the management structure was a bit to be desired.... at times you feel like your just a number and your suggestions might not amount to much. But the vacation and benefits were good and salary was competitive. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the day to day drama.... the culture was a bit toxic at times but at other times it was great... a bit of a roller coaster ride The best part of the job was dealing with and training all of the staff and advisors.... also i wasnt monitored and scrutinized about my day to day activities
Great benefits, vacation allotment and competitive salary
Typical corporate feel
Refuser le poste de conseiller à la Sun Life, vous allez y laisser votre peau, perdre de l'argent et du temps ! La Cie vous fait miroiter des gros salaires mais qui vous serons inaccessible pour vous en commençant. La grosse rémunération uniforme est efficace seulement pour les conseiller de carrière ( comme moi 36 ans ) mais pour un nouveau irréalisable. J'ai fait rentré mon propre fils comme conseiller et après 5 mois de succès continu , il se retrouve avec une rémunération pour 2 semaines clair de $ 188. Il doit payer $ 700 pour un bureau, $ 80 pour son ordi, $ 45 pour sa ligne de téléphone (?) X mois !!!! + les avantages sociaux environ $200 etc... sans compter les permis d'assurance, de fond de placement, et les assurance responsabilité civile... En conclusion, aller travailler ailleurs , vous m'en remercierez !!

took calls all day long, Day went very fast and great people in the call center. Some management was great but others need more training in social skills and behaviour. Great to be able to help out callers and give them information they needed. Hardest part was dealing with some of the management who thought they were better and knew best.
busy day, time went fast, great bunch of people in the call center
no security and always being told you can do better.
I originally was working in the Toronto office and I had to move to the US due to personal reasons, otherwise I would have never left. The hours are fabulous, you get to pick a shift that works for your schedule. Management and all the leadership is super helpful and ready to make sure you get promoted if you work hard enough. The culture is great! Teams are competitive, yet very positive.
If you don't like sales, competition & fast paced environment, it's not for you.
As an advisor you are how the financial centre makes their money. The training is pretty good, and they will support building a business, but be prepared for selling to your close friends and family as well as working really hard and long hours the first 3 years before you see any real returns for your efforts. The management are sexist. Most of them are there for the social events. They want to party and the younger female advisors are treated like fresh meat. It is still an old boys club. This might not be the case at all financial centers. If you are young and smart and able to live your work and live with your parents while building your business then it might be for you. Beware as well that you can rack up debt through expenses with the company (office space, benefits etc). They make money off you renting their space and occupying their offices. YOU the advisor are THEIR commodity. If you know anything about insurance, investing and sales then skip the handholding and go make more money with an independent brokerage.
Training, social events
Limited control, long hours, expenses, sexism, competitive
I was shocked when I first came to this company. Lack of training. Sales managers, advisors’ lack of training and knowledge on products. I don’t trust any financial advisor in this company. They just sell what they want to sell you. Terrible culture. Management team has been changed couple times within the last few years.
Just like any other major organization, experience will vary based on the department or area of work as well as who your manager is. Risk Management is a great in Sun Life. Great leadership and coworkers. Good and bad similar to any other big financial institution. I only left due to an opportunity i couldn't turn down.
Smart people, great culture, well known brand
Some long hours when multipule deadlines converge.
A job as an advisor at Sun Life is not an easy one. My management made sure this was VERY clear from the start. It will require lots of work, long days, and plenty of emotional ups and downs. Trust me when I tell you, you don't understand what I mean by what I just said (unless you've had a similar role or you were a business owner before). Be prepared to get out of your comfort zone. If you don't prospect, you don't have a pipeline. A salespersons pipeline is EVERYTHING. I don't care if you are a golden closer, if you can't get out there and talk to people and prospect, you'll fail before you start. This is not an inbound sales call centre. A day in the life is what you make it. If you don't want to roll out of bed until 2PM and put a few minutes work in, you'll fail. If you are up at 6AM, ready to go, ready to conquer the world, and are okay with coming home or finishing your work 12-16 hours later, you'll succeed. As long as you put in a genuine, effective effort. The hardest part of the job is the self-discipline in takes to succeed. Nobody is telling you what to do.
Great training, Great culture, Great management
Long hours, hard work, You could work 40 hours and not make a dime (Unlikely, but possible)
The following quotes reflect the culture there: "I don't have time, want or need to understand the problem or issues. I am here to make the decisions." - an Assistant Vice President "There's only budget for one of us to be here, and just to let you know - I am not going anywhere" - a middle-mgmt. bureaucrat on my first day of work "So is it done?" - individual who requested something in the prior hour's meeting after changing conference rooms with them Groundhog Day The new workers want to do a great job...and are enthusiastic. There are A LOT of workers that have been there 20+ years... who lack basic knowledge/experience, are territorial, counterproductive and overly bureaucratic. They will withhold information intentionally even if it is irrational. 95% unnecessary meetings with the same people back-to-back, 5% real work People more focused on protecting themselves politically rather than fixing/preventing problems. General lack of common sense. Lots of "Load-Fire-Aim" with the ensuing triage and blamestorming. Extreme reliance on unqualified off-shore consulting
Good Entry-Level Job, Lots to work on, Learn how not to do things
Far too top-heavy, Middle and upper mgmt not qualified to do their jobs, Extremely political
Great place to work! Good benefits! Great people! Excellent opportunity to move up in the company. Overall great place to have a career and work in the financial industry!
Great benefits and people!
