    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Big organization with a lot of Actuarial roles.
    Very nice Senior Management in Actuarial teams that can teach you a lot
    Work is visible and promotions can be quick and is becoming more merit-based.
    Nnice study days for exams, good work-life balance, and ability to work remotely later. Great place to train and become an experienced actuary.

    Cons

    Recent CEO change has brought a lot of re-organization, so you need to be adaptive. However, the focus of new management is good.

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest more into advertisement and recruitment to attract young actuarial talents.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Manulife (Kitchener, ON) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Started with an online application on their web portal. Got a call from HR that the director is interested in having a face to face interview. After a couple of weeks, I went to their Kitchener office for the face to face interview with the team members (3).
