Sunlife is huge, but so human at the same time. You're about to join a 10/10 company that will brand you as a place that is out of this world in terms of possibility.
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.
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.
Work from home on ocassion
Recognition and poor management
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
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:.
You are expected to sign up everyone you know. This is a cold calling job after two months. Be popular and respected among your community or it will be a tough one. you rent your office. you pay for internet. you pay to work there. Make sure you understand that you are starting your own company.
A very professional work environment, flexibility to work from home few days a week. Management appreciates your new ideas for system improvement, no micro management.
Toronto Traffic to go onsite
Organization controlled by old timers and new hires are expected to follow regardless of their level of experience.
This organization is a demotion to one’s skills. They do not harness your abilities but rather force you to do their way, the existence of huge staff who have been there for decades makes it impossible to grow. The balance is lost where the outsourcing offshore send work (designs) to Canda allowing offshore to grow in technichal and business knowledge and onshore get stuck in a deadend.
Not a great place to work. Sun life financial is a small department that has no opportunities to move onwards or upwards to do anything else. Their main industry is insurance not finance. People eventually end up moving to a different company. Also, since they are so small there is a lot of outsourcing. So getting things done is difficult since you have to go thorough many middle men.
Toxic culture, exceptionally uncollaborarive, rewards managing up and complete lack of teamwork. Unprofessional is the least that can be said about this organization.
Uncooperative environment. Encourages backstabbing.
