    I worked at Sun Life full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some great people, benefits are good, lots of opportunities to move around within the company.

    Cons

    Archaic processes and practices - "we don't do that here" or "we tried that already and it didn't work." Very difficult to change people's minds to look at challenges differently. The lack of innovation and inspiration is disappointing. The parking situation is terrible.

    I have been working at Sun Life full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Large company, with potential for exposure

    Cons

    Too many "lifers" who say, it has always been this way, that are reluctant to change. And rather than looking at themselves to promote change, they blame the younger generation for not having worked there as long as them so they couldn't possible know how to do/fix a problem.
