Data Entry Processor (Former Employee) – London, ON – 1 December 2017
I enjoyed my time at LL overall. Made friends and got some good professional experience. Pay was okay for what my job was. First two years were better than the final year. Company culture was pretty good however in my department was sort of obvious who the bosses like and who they dislike. Out of the people i knew and worked with it appeared as though a promotion usually relied on factors like how close you sat to the person interviewing you or if they knew one of your family members. In 2017 the company underwent huge changes involving outside management consultants, mass layoffs and forced retirements. My team was cut in half and I was laid off. So as far as job security goes in my experience there is not any what so ever at this place, but they do a great job acting like there is. I would work there again but not at my old position but if a job in a new department opened I would happy to give it a shot.
Claims Examiner (Former Employee) – London, ON – 23 October 2017
A enjoyable place to work. Over 15 years of service, learned how to process medical and dental claims. I liked the group atmosphere. In addition, the ability to be able to work with other departments to ensure time service.
Life Insurance Agent (Current Employee) – St. John's, NL – 6 September 2017
Tired of having to pay to work, the company just moved to new offices and tripled the cost of usage wether you use it or not ( which I do not ). We used to lease computers from them @ $50 per pay, systems changed and we had to buy our own and they charge us $70 per pay for technology fee. A typical day for me is prospecting, service calls and evening appointments, no leads are provided. Helping clients find suitable solutions to financially protect their families and themselves in case of a catastrophic event was the best part of my job.
Financial Security Advisor (Former Employee) – London, ON – 27 August 2017
The Freedom 55 brand is purely a marketing concept. This organization does not offer comprehensive and balanced financial advice. As my (former ) branch manager announced to staff: "at London Life, we are not here to offer financial advice. We are life insurance salesmen".
