    I have been working at Manulife full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Development opportunities
    Team that has a family feel, who's incredibly passionate about their jobs and motivated to help their colleagues succeed by helping and sharing knowledge
    Flexibility in terms of tasks catered to interests and work location
    Recognition and rewards
    $10,000 coverage towards mental health and wellness per year
    Parking
    Desire/ability to adapt and stay relevant

    Cons

    Cafeteria - prices (regularly pay upward of $15-$20 for a salad), lines that can take around 20 mins to get through at peak time but I've also waiting around 10 mins multiple times to pay when no one is there because only the person officially on cash can cash me out (cross train?), non-dairy options are non existent since I bought the last expired soy milk a few months ago - I wish I liked black coffee, soups are salty and made with tap water (chlorinated hard water) or the tomato paste isn't diluted and you get a spoonful, Charge extra for the veggie options (stirfry or wraps) - Next time I will get the chicken wrap but ask them to hold the chicken aha Does not seem to align with our partnership with Participaction or with Vitality.

    Advice to Management
