Avis d'employé sur Financière Sun Life
Flexible work schedule, fast paced work environment.
Working for Sun Life Financial has its ups and downs. In terms of flexibility, Sun Life Financial provided a good balance between work life and social life. The staff was great, provided excellent support. The downs, however, is what has forced me to look for other opportunities. As an advisor, there is only so much you can do for the client but at the end of the day it is up to the client if he/she will take the policy or not. I am a very driven individual and I spend hours building presentations and preparing documents for my clients. At the end of the day, I like to be in control of my productivity but with a commission based salary, if a client makes you do all this work and then decides not to go through with it, it can be very frustrating. I am intrigued by the insurance industry because of what it is capable of doing. In terms of leveraging your risk, insurance is a great asset. I enjoy meeting with clients and being out on the field. One of my biggest strengths is the ability to have a conversation with an individual and really get a sense of what they are thinking and if their is any possibility of a business transaction. Working with Sun Life Financial has definitely thought me how to run my own business, be organized as a professional and how to balance my work and social life.

Stressful environment, commission based salary
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.
- 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.
