Manulife was not only a major contributor to my success in Canada but it also help me to form life long friendships. Through this job I was able to gain valuable hard and soft skills. I enjoyed coming in to work everyday and appreciated any challenges that came about in my daily tasks.

A good place to work but no room for advancement

Great people to work with. Lack of proper trainings from HO. I've learned a lot from working here but the job does not compensate well. Management is all new so they're still trying to figure things out.

Many departments to move around to gain lots of experience

Great place to work with lots of opportunity for hard working people. Management truly values individual contributions and the rewards are based upon individual contributions and successes. The more you achieve, the better the rewards.

Pros

Great loaction

Cons

Should treat employees the same as customers

Work life balance was great, compensation is good as well. I didn't care for some middle managers including their bullying, attitude and management style. I met some great people there. Job security is not great regardless of how long you have been there.

Huge Company with plenty of opportunities to grow

Great company to work at, but sometimes it is just too huge to work at. Good company to work when you are starting out on your career. And plenty of opportunities.

Great salary and benefits

I was there through an agency on a temporary contract in a department that was becoming obsolete and therefore I knew well in advance that it was only a temporary, contract position. The job was very repetitive, sitting all day in front of a computer, however, it was a nice work environment and I was paid well, treated well.

Quiet and productive office environment

An office filled with hard-working, confident, and focused individuals - the perfect place to keep your mind on track. Fun personalities who are more than welcoming to everyone. Not once have I experienced a negative vibe in this office. Management is very understanding and approachable.

Pros

Great employee moral, incentive activities, volunteer and team building events
