Relaxed atmosphere and lots of work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Never a dull day at Manulife. Nice people, I got along with everyone there. It was very easy to talk to anyone there. I would say mostly my concerns were addressed and everyone came together to help me. I would also help others when I could. My manager was very helpful and I enjoyed having her as a boss.

Pros

Lots of work, rarely bored, nice co-workers

Cons

Long hours and quite stressful

Not a good work environment

The worst department I’d ever worked in. It caused me a lot of headaches.. I do believe overall Manulife could be a good place to work depending on the department you work in, however most I’ve asked either quit or had a negative experience.

Pros

None

Cons

Work environment/culture, low pay, unnecessarily stressful

Great place to be

it was fun working at Manulife, the years working there everyone became family instead of co-workers, team leaders and supervisors are always willing to help, plus lots of support tools to help get the job done

Pros

free thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, easy access with public transit, lots of place to have lunch

Cons

short breaks, huge building, no free parking

Typical corporate giant

Lots of turnover, have to justify your existence all the time, management may not be in the same province. Most jobs except call centres will have a stable schedule Monday-Friday. Good health benefits, pension etc. Lots of different jobs under one roof so room for lateral advancement anyway. If you have a thick skin and don't mind fear of layoffs the benefits are very good.

Pros

Lots of benefits

Cons

Management actively tries to have you outsourced

I liked working there

There is lots of opportunity to move around, but they've been cutting jobs the last few years. People used to stay there long term, but job security is low now.

Pros

Big company

Cons

job cuts

mutual fund company

I was a contract work at Manulife Mutual Funds. It's a great company with nice location in downtown Toronto. Due to economic downturn, there wasn't enough work for all staff so I was let go after 8 months.

Interactive Summer Student Position

This was a great summer student position that allowed me to learn crucial information about the medical and disability fields. I worked hand in hand with the medical team to oversee long term disability cases as well as work on different projects that enhanced my computer and administrative skills. The management levels are well organized and try to incorporate every employees best skills.

Great Company

The Company as a whole is great, The Management is what sucks as they are suppose to encourage employees and promote a healthy work environment. Instead they make you feel like a child and take every opportunity to show it

Pros

Good Pay, Benefits and Vacation
