Pay is a joke. After 16 years there and being a high-achiever I am nowhere near what my peers working at other companies are making.Management says they want you to take time for yourself and use your vacation days, then make a fuss when you book the time off.It was better 14-15 years ago before they offshored many of the jobs to India. Now nobody knows what they're doing and my team is stuck fixing all of their mistakes when it's not even part of our job. Look elsewhere.
Points positifs
Work from home
Points négatifs
Fixing mistakes made in offshored jobs in India but no raise in pay

Do not apply if you care about work-life balance. Management will not ask you to work overtime, but workload is intense, and you do not have choice to work overtime without being paid.

Points négatifs

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.
Points positifs
Excellent training
Points négatifs
Commission based and no advancement opportunities

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.
Points positifs
a lot of paid time off, amazing mental health coverage
Points négatifs
no formal performance reviews or clear guides on how to improve

Un cadre de travail collaboratif et motivant c'est dommage que le salaire ne soit plus motivant au fil des années.

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...

The work environment is highly toxic and it depends on who you know. HR is not independent in handling reported cases of manager mentally “abusing” staff even with supporting evidence. The executive leadership has been campaigning mental health at workplace this year, but none of it is enforceable. Manager has the power and sole authority to be unreasonable in their ask of you. For example, making it impossible for you to take time off to the point of you having to forfeit your allotted vacation days and using performance evaluation as the leverage. HR does absolutely nothing but work for the management.
Points positifs
If you are connected to the right people in the company, you can get away with high compensation and not having to do any work.
Points négatifs
Scapegoating culture

Very disappointed at the way management did not support staff and created fear amongst staff. Compared to competitors Sun Life is far from employer of choice as they claimed to be. Sr. Mgmt action did not live you to their word. What they preached was not supported by their actions.
Points positifs
Decent pay
Points négatifs
but not worth putting up with the feeling of fear walking into work every day

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

The company makes hard for the employees to perform. They make the employees go through much scrutiny just to create a show. In reality, your survival is greatly depend on who is your manager and team leader, you will find there are actually no consistency in the way the STD-LTD claims are handled. The job itself could be more satisfying to any case manager if they were not constantly micro-managed. Paid money is actually very low once you divide them into the total time you actually put doing your job. The benefits are provided by the company are in comparison to all other out there serving in same industry profile.
Points positifs

Points négatifs
making it highly stressful

lots of misleading statements. So be aware that they do not care for you and will only help if and when you are producing. Young new advisors recieve barely any help and from the get go you are thrown into the lions den. Be prepared to work long hours for little pay.
Points positifs
Access to seminars
Points négatifs
Mistruths, hypocrisy, lack of mentors, the struggle is real.

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.

Overworked, underpaid..you feel like slavery is still very much a thing. Your merits, hardwork, loyalty and stats are not recognized. The only way you are able to move up in the company is by licking management boots and even then they have their favourites. A lot of discrimination and sexism is evident coupled with office politics. I would not recommend anyone to work here!!!
Points positifs

The management promised great commissions & bonuses but never delivered. Sun Life does NOT care about its clients but does care about its bottom line. There is no management support for advisors, support staff or training. If this was ever a good company for either staff or clients it is no longer. I would never buy any insurance or invest any money with this company.
Points positifs
Well known name
Points négatifs
Poor management, poor pay structure, focussed on becoming more corporate over client success

The Sun Life Advisor role is one of the worst positions in the company. Please don’t be fooled. It is 100% commission which isn’t horrible but the percentage that they take per sale is just ridiculous. Even worse if you have a bad month which everyone has they take even more away from you! As appealing as the job sounds don’t be fooled it is not worth your time or energy. Look elsewhere!
Points positifs
Flexible schedule, Get to help people

I worked on the digital team and the employees were great to work with, very helpful, but my manager scrutinized every step i took. I was pretty new on the team, but was expected to learn the new CMS they used within the first 2 weeks. It's very fast-paced, stressful, and no lenience or work/life balance available. Wellness days/mental health days are not offered anymore and management doesn't seem to care about the wellness of their employees, they just want the job done and fast.
