Leaders are a Joke, president failed this company along with Lincoln. Will never keep talented employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Wellesley, MA (US)

I have been working at Sun Life full-time

ProsIts just a job if you work here.

Great work life balance because the company does promote laziness, complacency, and lack of responsibility to managements expense accounts.

ConsComplacent management

Crap pay

No upper movement nor is there dedication to internal employees to move around in the company

Very "old" crowd of useless managers with terrible performance track record. Its like a collusion of terrible, lazy, and old management keeping each other employed while losing real talent to much more competitive and better companies

Terrible decision making within upper and lower management.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour kidding yourselves to think you will continue to operate in the near to long term future with your current "regime". Will enjoy seeing how you fair in the real world once you lose your jobs. From the looks of LinkedIn, seems like that's been a complete fail as well.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
