Great idea of what they want as far as culture. However major issues with Directors and Managers not following .
Manager (Former Employee) – Québec Province – 5 January 2019
Manulife is great as far as vision. However it stops at middle management . 90% of the Directors and Managers are very old school, and do the opposite of the company vison. The company invests so much in leadership training, however most of the leaders do not want to change , so its a waste of time . The Directors do not think big, and just care about hitting their targets to fill their pockets. It’s very unfortunate, as Manulife is a huge company with lots of potential for employees to grow, and gain experience in other lines of business . However Directors cringe at this idea, and do not develop their top potential as they need them performing to hit their variable Comp incentive . I was told by a Director that I was crazy to promote a top performer , should have make excuses to hold on to them as now it would affect my variable bonus. This is a nutshell is the real culture at Manulife .
