A number of organizational changes have allowed for opportunities to advance. Many challenges with day to day given all the changes and previous inefficiencies cause slow work progress but also provide opportunities to stand out.

Training and Quality Specialist (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 July 2017
Despite the ongoing organizational restructuring that occurs, Manulife has an overall positive corporate culture, driven by strong values. Most roles today enable employees to work from home or utilize flexible hours to better manage their personal lives if needed. While it has become more difficult to advance internally with the constant organizational restructuring, Manulife is an overall secure company to work for and offers ample opportunities for lateral movement. The company invests generously into the employees personal health and well being. Much of the office equipment now encourages the maintenance of long term health with standing desks now available, even treadmills that enable you to work while walking at a slow speed. The companies health and dental benefits are also quite good. I would recommend this company who values work/life balance over a competitive compensation or internal growth up the corporate latter.

Licensed Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 May 2017
I enjoyed working at Manulife during my first four years. But after my manager moved to another department, everything changed when a new unknowledgeable manager was hired. Also, it was very hard to move to another department for growth, there's always politics.
