      Pros

      The people at Manulife are wonderful, great team, friendly, great environment, and facilities are top-notch. The company allows employee exposure to different areas and to segway across different departments over the years, i.e., flexible in terms of allowing movement across departments and upward mobility too (as I heard from colleagues who have worked there for more than 5 years). Great at facilitating learning and personal and professional development, as I have experienced. The company does great at keeping its employees happy! Very accommodating for people with disabilities. Overall, Manulife is a great place to work - the result is, ultimately, job satisfaction.

      Cons

      Long working hours - although that may be skewed by current project and workload demands and urgent deadlines, which may only be department-specific (I am not able to speak for others in other departments).
