Licensed Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 May 2017
It is a great company and offers so many products. As field advisor, it gave me work-life balance since I managed my schedules. However, being a field advisor there's so much stress of finding new clients.
Great environment to work in that encouraged team-building and rewarded hard work.
Digital Mail Administrator (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 16 May 2017
It is a quality and production focused department and the daily tasks are repetitive. The hardest part of the job was to keep up to date with specific requirements and processes while still hitting production targets. That being said, the management team are very flexible and patient and will work with you to achieve specific goals. I would recommend this position as a great way to start building your career at a reputable company.

Sun Life Advisor (Former Employee) – Montreal – 12 May 2017
I just did not imagine how being an advisor is such a demanding job in terms of hours and the payoff is only more visible once you've accumulated years of relationships with many customers. I respect the company and its culture, just that it isn't the type of job for me.

I loved working for Sun Life. The management, job security, pay, benefits and overall experience with Sun Life is fantastic. I left Sun Life because I went back to school, but I would love to find another position like the one I had, especially at Sun Life.
