    I worked at Sun Life full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Sun Life is a great and safe place to learn. It has a huge amount of diversity in business lines, so if you want there is a lot of knowledge to gain.

    Cons

    It is difficult to move up as there is not a high turnover rate. In addition, depending on the business line there a reluctance to change, people have been in their jobs for 20+ years and "that's the way they've always done it" mentality is present.

    I have been working at Sun Life full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits plan, easy to get into the company if you start at the call center, pay is competitive. Honestly its a good place for someone who has little or no post-secondary education as you can stick it out and move up over time.

    Cons

    They like to sell you the idea that you will get training and move up the ranks when in fact it takes way too long. More skills = more pay, but you cant get more skills if theres not enough people, high turnover, bonuses are ok but don't be surprised if you do not get one. Currently pushing for a lot of sales so for me that was a con

    Flexible work environment. Good training.

    Commission-based. You pay for office space, phone, business card, etc. They say it's your business but the thing is you leave every client when you resign. High turnover. Management like you when you're up.

    I have been working at Sun Life full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Always lots of interesting and challenging work. Competitive salaries and flexible benefit package. Market leader.

    Cons

    Organization matrix is too complex. Decisions take too long due to the number of people who need to weigh in. Too much process to deliver IT projects which turns into too much overhead and inefficiencies. Middle managers are not always selected based on competencies vs. friends/acquaintances and employees pay the price by reporting to individuals who cannot do their jobs and they end of leaving (high turnover rate in some areas)
