    I worked at Sun Life for more than a year

    Pros

    - Working from home - Relaxed working environment - Decent/helpful people to work with - Great office facilities - Employee discounts (phone provider, plane tickets, etc.)

    Cons

    - No technical work involved (job description specified "Knowledge of iOS and/or Android development"). The job itself was to tell people how to install apps from the App store and check the iPhone "Settings"... all user-end stuff. - The job description also said "Application software testing tools and techniques" which mind you, we did not even make any applications. I did not see a single line of code for this job. The "testing" was mainly to install an app and see if there were any changes to what the user sees and to update documentation... this job is basically an internal "Apple Genius" and a Bell/Rogers/etc. representative within the company - No paid leave

    I worked at Sun Life full-time

    Pros

    Good working environment. People are easy to work with. The Company has a lot of initiatives so there is plenty of challenging work. Benefits are okay.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive with industry and promotion can be slow, especially for female lawyers in Asia. More diversity in hiring is needed as there is a tendency for groupthink.
