Security Analyst (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 12 July 2018
As a corporation they are a good company. Benefits, pension and options to purchase Manulife Shares were good. My personal experience (not applicable to all area's of company, just the area I worked in) is that most management were more focused on looking good than investing in their employees which meant they overcommitted to what could actually be accomplished. The end result was that staff were under high stress to get unmanageable loads of work accomplished. Put multiple teams under this pressure and the work place culture sours as each person is in survival mode.
I am thankful for the experience of working there. I am thankful for the years where my work environment was a good one. Now I am thankful to be searching for a company that will support me in a way that enables me to do amazing work for them.
Customer Service Professional (contract) (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 12 July 2018
They treat you like you are garbage and no job security what so ever. they will lie to you and tell you that you are doing great and that you are an investment and yet you wake up one day to be told not to come in for no reason. worse place ever management is not supportive and they overwork you.
Flexible workplace environment with good benefits.
Bilingual Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – 26 June 2018
Overall I have enjoyed my time at Manulife. Finding a position in Nova Scotia with decent salary and benefits can be a challenge. I profit from their Work from Home initiative and generally supportive work environment.
However Manulife is undergoing significant changes that I do not feel are beneficial for its workers and for the most part, are not beneficial for its clients as well.

Very deliverable focused and valuable resources made available to collaborate and to share best practices globally.

Dynamic new leadership who recognize the importance of crisis management to triage risk issues quickly
Bilingual Travel Insurance Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 April 2018
Decent pay for the industry. Perk to work at home most days. Horrible communication by management who are mostly unqualified for the role. Overall a decent place to work if you can put up with your inept managers.
Life Insurance Advisor (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 1 April 2018
The company is great to work for and has a stable work environment that is able to change based on the ever-changing clients requests to better the system;
Tasks and goals are not overwhelming
Teamwork is a factor that is learned and practiced effortlessly and backed by a good company track record it is no wonder it a pleasure as well to work for a company provided you willing to put in the work
Manulife provided flexible benefits, flexible work hours, and flexible work arrangements. I had a few of the best managers I've ever had at Manulife, but I've also had some poor managers. My biggest complaint about working for Manulife is that you got rewarded for good work with more work. Their compensation and recognition programs are not their priority, and not on par with other companies in the area.
