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.
Work load and management
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.
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

Un cadre de travail collaboratif et motivant c'est dommage que le salaire ne soit plus motivant au fil des années.
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
The job is straightforward but the onus is on the Advisor to self-motivate, and to produce your own prospects. If you do not have a large warm market you will find it difficult. Also complex and continuously increasing requirements for compliance with government regulations.
Freedom and opportunity to build a substantial income
You have to be prepared to do the work, and be extremely self-motivated. Also, long hours
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.
Access to seminars
Mistruths, hypocrisy, lack of mentors, the struggle is real.
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.
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.
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.
A productive, fast-paced work environment where both an ability to work independently and collaborate with others is required and valued. Management tries to be supportive of employee educational and career aspirations. An ability to work from home is also provided to many roles/positions.
Trigger happy management that believes that it is a manager's prerogative to fire a person. Even if others are happy with the person's output. In a survey by CEO, the top management request came out that "make firing easier:.
Collaborative environment with excellent employees and management. Community and family oriented. Subsidized employee restaurant with excellent food. Flexible work arrangements and provided all the tools required to be successful.
