Great culture, and an agile work environment
Sun Life has great values and treats the employees and clients with such respect, always putting their best interest first. They are a welcoming environment although meeting people is difficult because of the agile environment you are not always around the same people, although this makes the work space exciting and different as well. As a contract worker you do not always have a busy schedule, and can feel lost at times due to not having a set agenda for each day. You are given the work "no one wants to do' as the other employees are very busy. Overall its a great place to work with many perks such as great salary, great people, great central location (Toronto location), and very flexible work hours because of the option to work from home.
Pros
Flexible hours, and great benefits
Cons
Can feel lonely and not part of a team (contract employees)

Stressful Environment; Beautiful Building - Bad Location
I can only speak on behalf of the one department I worked in. The job itself is extremely stressful; handling client complaints and and dealing with serious illness' and seeing employees decisions that impact peoples lives is a lot to handle. There is a very arrogant attitude in general to my department, a 'that's not MY job' attitude. Everyone will pass off as much work to other people as they possibly can, and managers don't say anything about it. The department refuses to offer me a full time position and no matter how many contract extensions I get offered, there is no possibility of ANY benefits, sick days, personal days, vacation, or a raise. There is no room to rise within the department as far as I'm concerned. No respect.
Pros
Fixed work week. Weekends off. Decent wages.
