The support team from the district and head office is fantastic. Unique and above average compensation. Love the concept of upfront commission for any plan submitted plus monthly residual income.
Competitive compensation and outstanding support from leadership team
Earnings fluctuate but still better than average
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.
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.

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!!!

Poor management; discrimination; excessive workloads; poor pay; office politics
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.
Well known name
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!

- during the interview stage, managers were late arriving and seemed very distracted. Kept repeating how busy they were. - no orientation - employees are set up to fail. Information that is vital to your job is not shared and only revealed after your work is completed. Your work is then ripped apart. - manager watched the clock to ensure you were at your assigned desk no matter what level or how much extra time you worked Just an overall a really bad experience - so disappointing but have moved on to better.
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.
SLF tries to see itself as a competitive company with good pay and rewards it’s employees. From my experience they will make you work on so many projects that doesn’t seem to fit your job description. They will give you projects that belong to other employees and when you’ve accomplished the tasks that has never been done before, and you train all colleagues, you are not recognized for it. Instead the employees whom you’ve trained reaps the reward of your training and they get promoted. All high severity issues are handed to me as the team are unable to do it. This company will take you for all you’ve got and they will not appreciate it. SLF hires junior level employees to save money.

Recognition and poor management
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
Getting into the industry, I always viewed Sun Life as one of the better companies. It isn't. Though my colleagues and managers were (for the most part) fairly nice and knowledgeable, all they care about is your initial sales to get you "appointed". They push for you to sell to family and friends. After that, they don't really offer much support unless you have a high value network. They rinse and repeat and turnover is high. They also force you to rent their offices, so even though you're barely scraping by and trying to keep costs low initially, they tack on some hefty bills between their offices and specific computers they have to approve. Overall, not the worst experience. But as a salesperson, it's pretty rough.
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
Their call centre is a train wreck. They claim customer service is priority but you are literally timed and trained to get the customer OFF the phone ASAP!! They walk good people out on a weekly basis ! And their success rate of trainees who make it there is about 20% !! They will sell you the world in training ... but wait till you hit the floor !!
Team leaders who are not trained or equipped to manage people
