Sun Life is a nice place to work. Professional, straightforward tasks throughout the day. There is a system in place for all aspects of the business, which makes it easy to learn the job. The more difficult aspects of the job are the things that can't really be taught, but must be learned from experience. These include excellent customer service abilities, such as patience, great listening skills and a high level of communication.
It was a great place to work. Great hours mon-fri 8:30am - 4:30pm. Never worked weekends and not much overtime during the week. Office gossip could be stressful but if ignored and just got on with job you were fine. Enjoyed the people I worked with and meeting clients. Work load sometimes stressful when covering for another employee but overall good experience. Didn’t see myself moving up though.
Most of time you are interacting with clients through mail and calls, you should have detail knowledge of all insurances and policies , so you can help your clients with their quarries.
not good pay

Sun Life has great values and treats the employees and clients with such respect, always putting their best interest first. They are a welcoming environment although meeting people is difficult because of the agile environment you are not always around the same people, although this makes the work space exciting and different as well. As a contract worker you do not always have a busy schedule, and can feel lost at times due to not having a set agenda for each day. You are given the work "no one wants to do' as the other employees are very busy. Overall its a great place to work with many perks such as great salary, great people, great central location (Toronto location), and very flexible work hours because of the option to work from home.
Flexible hours, and great benefits
Can feel lonely and not part of a team (contract employees)
Taught me a lot about working in an office environment, something which I was completely new to. It involved a lot of basic, easy to understand tasks that allowed for work hours that were flexible around my school schedule.
heavy workload, great teams and management with a variety of training opportunities; annual team outings; good benefits and great job culture overall.
annual team events
salary is lower than many other places
This is very similar to my job at Ernst and Young. Worked for upper management - they really appreciated my fast turn around of tasks. I tried always to make them look awesome and in turn make my job great.
9 to 5 job
Too far to travel
Working in Sun Life will give you challenges to polish your communication skills and be organized. As well as, dealing with problems especially when dealing with clients. You will learn how to be compliant and it stretches your common senses.
I can only speak on behalf of the one department I worked in. The job itself is extremely stressful; handling client complaints and and dealing with serious illness' and seeing employees decisions that impact peoples lives is a lot to handle. There is a very arrogant attitude in general to my department, a 'that's not MY job' attitude. Everyone will pass off as much work to other people as they possibly can, and managers don't say anything about it. The department refuses to offer me a full time position and no matter how many contract extensions I get offered, there is no possibility of ANY benefits, sick days, personal days, vacation, or a raise. There is no room to rise within the department as far as I'm concerned. No respect.
Fixed work week. Weekends off. Decent wages.
I worked for 2 Financial Advisors . Keeping their schedules up to dates. Making sure all forms and documents they need were available all the time. Communicate with them via email, text and phone . Support them on all their need to make their day went smooth.
Activities every Friday. Interaction between staff.
Because the type of job hardly to follow Hours of work.
I would recommend anyone who wishes to work at Sunlife. Great bonus at year end and work environment. Supportive co-worker, I learned alot about IT and Project Management.
