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.

Complexity & size of the company makes it challenging. The company is 130 years old hence historical information maintenenace and change is challenging. Incorporating better tools is also a challenge due to the size of the company.

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.

Overall a fair and great place to work. Good home work balance, ability to work from home 3 days a week. Been there for 20 years advanced slowly by personal choice, they have many departments to choose from so you can move up and around within the company.
