    Current Employee - Claims 
    Recommends

    I have been working at Sun Life full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It is about what can be expected from a corporate insurance company culture and work long. They are flexible for remote work and or managing work/life balance; management is open and approachable, bonuses (if you exceed your performance appraisal) are decent, the systems are workhorses and outdated; however the company is currently working on integrating all the old systems into one system by the end of the year

    Cons

    huge workloads which sometimes makes it difficult to balance work/life time, pay could be better. Those that work very hard and handle their case loads and do special projects do not seem to get promoted while others that are not great workers get promoted and/or given many chances and are not let go.

    Advice to Management

    focus on your better workers and reward them instead of giving them more work to do! stop hand-holding co-workers who cannot get their job done and keep getting a pass while those that do their work end up helping those that cannot be bothered then are not recognized and/or promoted.
