Management and advisors work closely and collaboratively for the wellbeing of clients. Lots of opportunity for growth within the company. Training is always available and technology/technology tools are always being updated.
Supportive Management, Pay, Benefits
After working at the company for a few years, you can definitely see the inclusive culture and supporting peers you would expect from Sun Life. If you are looking for a work-life balance, this is the right company for you.
I had interview with the managers, got selected and hired. They scheduled me to write an exam to get my LLQP license without asking me my availability. I passed the exam, scheduled many appointments with the clients with my immediate manager. Acquired new group insurance and wealth and other businesses. Didn’t pay me a penny and when i quit, they didn’t give me any information on what to do with my LLQP license to keep it active. Poor management with excellent training.
Commission based and no advancement opportunities
Self employment as insurance salesman good training and ok products. Not true self employment they still can end contract anytime and force sales minimums. n

Its a nice culture and they really care about their employees. A great place to work. Its been a wonderful fit for me and lots of opportunity to move around.
Flexible work arrangements
None that I can think of
Been a great company to work for, for 30 years. Can still work from home during the world pandemic. Flex time has been good for a single mother. Sun Life has taught me a lot over the years.
Small salary increases yearly
The work culture was like nothing I had ever experienced. Very friendly and inviting. I learned a lot about disability case management principles.My management was great!I felt the onboarding and ongoing training and development has a lot of room for improvement, which they are working on. The central case management software is also terrible but is also being completely redone.
a lot of paid time off, amazing mental health coverage
no formal performance reviews or clear guides on how to improve
Great salary and benefits but no loyalties from the company. Over stressed environment with no proper trainings nor support from managers. You have to be able to find your way around to train and be productive.
The Sun Life career network is described to applicants as self-employment.This is the first lie. While it is true that the career offers a lot of autonomy over various aspects of the job, the management team will always be behind you to find out what you are doing, and if they deem these insufficient they will quickly become harassing.Recently, some regions no longer have a financial center, forcing applicants to make arrangements and obligations on their own, without Sun Life having to worry about anything.They have a good game. Resources, money, employees and etc, but Sun Life asks advisors to represent the banner well when the interest to do so is very low.Short-term commissions are lower than elsewhere. The fees are higher than elsewhere as well.Compensation and commissions are very complex and there are regular errors. Makes me think it's designed with the goal of stopping a full understanding of real pay.There are a lot of people in the hierarchy who are not honest. Be careful not to rely too much on them. After all, if you ever need support or whatever, it will be Sun Life first.Promises, promises and more promises, but at the end of the day, those promises are rarely delivered.In your beginnings they will be sympathetic, compassionate, available, but at a certain point things turn out so you have no choice but to listen. Clients are owned by Sun Life. So in your beginnings, you have no leverage, it is always Sun Life that will have the big end of the stick. They will make you do things you don't want and you will have no choice but to listen, because you - plus...
A certain professional freedom
I became depressed working there.Everything I was told during the interview process was chucked out the window when I started, all the processed changed and they play a game of changing your manager that it gets confusing, in a span on 4 months I experienced 3 different managers
This company is the complete opposite of a healthy, positive and supporting environment.When I was first hired, I was promised multiple and fast growth opportunities. The manager who hired me was set up by a group of people acting as a mafia in the company, pinned something on him and got him fired.The remaining manager who I reported to directly, stole multiple ideas of mine during interviews for other roles, only to find out later that the positions were either canceled due to 'funding shortage' or position was filled in Montreal.This company is filled with sneaky and fake people and I do not recommend working here or even dealing in business with them.
The embodiment of modern slavery
Working at Sun Life, they gave me an opportunity to be my own boss. I was given the opportunity to work with the best mentors in the industry. I learned a lot about time management, patience, diligence and perseverance. It was indeed a great work environment at the location I was at.
So I techinically didn't work directly for Sun Life, but I worked for a Financial Advisor, on site, who is contracted by Sun Life. That still meant that I was subject to Sun Life rules, training and standards. However, despite the accessibility training, I could not actually get help from the company when I was faced with ableism, abuse and manipulation. I wasyelled at, not listened to, manipulated, had my job threatened if I didn't get better but if not promised a raise. Despite all of that, there was no one I could ask for help. The lack of accountability is appalling. When I eventually quit due to mental health concerns due to the treatment of my boss, instead of denying me support, EI actually asked why I stayed for so long. It was a nightmare. At the same time, Head Office downsized and fired several of our management staff to restructure and made everything more complicated and requiring support from HO or from a resource facilitator in Thunder Bay. Oh, and because my salary didn't come from Sun Life, I had to fight my advisor for a year of Stat pay and vacation pay.
Some free lunches
yelling, abuse, lack of accountability, lack of leadership, centralised leadership structure
Bad experience working in pushing environment as a consultant but done some good work there. I never recommend anyone to work there. If anyone will start working there he will be out sooner or later from there. Main reason is the culture is not very good, its push push and only push environment. They teat people like machines.
My experience on a scale of 1-10 would be 3. My overall experience interacting with the manager and CMC has been negative. CMC is extremely critical and the manager does what the CMC dictates. Together they create an unbearable work environment
1. They invest in your education 2. You work on your own, but not by your own 3. Bonuses structure rather confusing. 4. It's best you have a solid network in place.
