    Pros

    Collegial, generally stable environment, interesting challenges and assignments. Overall a solid place to work. But it is team and group specific. New CEO has done a good job in making employees feel valued.

    Cons

    Groups are often silo'd, old school hierarchy culture from certain groups and people.

    I worked at Manulife full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work from home opportunities Great co-workers Ability to take longer vacations (use up all days at once)

    Cons

    Constant executive churn - new teams/functions are constantly being created, disbanded, and merged. It's impossible to keep track of who is responsible for what anymore. Promotions are extremely hard to get - they would rather hire a director from outside than promote a manager from within. Tons of communication from all levels of management, except when people are let go. Then there's not a word.

    I worked at Manulife full-time

    Pros

    processes are clear; tech is current and continually improved and tech support is there; leaders in work from home options more than 10 years; great profit sharing, benefits, and more
