      Sun Life has a great reputation and is one of the top insurance companies in Canada. There is a supportive and encouraging working environment.


      Communication needs to be improved

        Sun life has a strong company culture that promotes collaboration and teamwork. It is a welcoming and inclusive environment and I felt valued.


        Sun life could benefit from a more focused and driven approach towards productivity. Many of the company's processes and systems are outdated and inefficient, which results in ALOT of operational waste and unnecessary delays. Some of the processes appear to be overly complicated, and there are many unnecessary steps in place which is often frustrating and leads to decreased efficiency from the teams as a whole.

      If employers are shopping cheap, should we just apply for roles that we're less qualified for?

      I had an interview late August, sent a thank you the same day, followed up when they said they would get back to me, and then again a week later and I got no response. I gave up and they just sent me an email saying the position was on hold and they hoped to have an update at the end of the week. I'd still like to see what they might offer me so what could I say in response?



      Have you ever been asked by a recruiter to sign an nda before they can speak to you about a job they're recruiting you for? Mind you they reached out to me
