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 !!
Pour conseiller établies seulement
Revenus potentiel innaccessible
good place to learn the ropes, but they tend to off shore a lot of development work, so one ends up only managing software development, rather than actively coding. This can lead to stagnation, it is really up to the individual, this model work for some.
very flexible, inclusive, good benefits, good compensation
off shore development, to manger managers

Great company to work for. You have the ability to make real changes in people's lives and help them plan and protect for their future. Being able to help someone out when they are at one of the lowest points in their life is very rewarding.
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.

Emplois et carrières chez Financière Sun Life
I enjoy working at sunlife they care about their employees and they care about their clients. They continuously try to make things better any way they can and to impove the employees experience. We have a say at work, and if we have an idea to make something better we are heard. I love my team as they are with everyday and the managers try there best to help in any way possible.
Sun Life has a very flexible working environment. It is a place that offers equal opportunity women and minorities. Being a big company it can be tough to navigate the procedures and many interactions at first. The are constantly keeping their employees informed of milestones and goals of the company
Flex time and work from home. Lots of room for growth internally
Lots steps (approvals/forms) required for the most basic of tasks
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
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.
I worked at Sun Life for over 8 years and have nothing but positive feelings. I have no post secondary education and I was never held back because of it. I worked hard, had a good attitude and I received several promotions and internal awards and recognition. Supportive management and accessible senior management who really took the time to listen. I would recommend the company to anyone.
Lots of room for advancement
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)
My experience with Sun Life was very good, except for the fact that our leader was not a people person. Apart from assigning any blame on the company for one leader, I think Sun Life is a great organization to work for. It is generally underrated in my opinion.
Perks are good
No free tea/ coffee
