Sun Life Financial Employee

"Worked at Sun in 2 stints, early nineties and currently - total of 15-16 years (tho they will not credit me with the earlier (>5 yrs) for pension/retirement). High pressure, upper management disconnected from workers, high ego expression (to the detriment company's progress). My area, stop loss underwriting, has been wildly profitable but salaries and bonuses are stagnant. Rumors of big salary differences between existing underwriters and the new (past 6 mtht) underwriters hired (ie, hired at market and existing underwriters are under paid)."

Sun Life Financial Employee

"Sun Life in Wellesley, MA is a joke. They don't know how to manage effectively. They email supervisors back and forth, complaining about employees, yet they never speak to them directly. There is a party/get-together many times per month. Also, when at the "party", the "supervisors" seem to force themselves into "showing how much fun they're having", (they're not) in pictures, for the company newsletter. Actually, would rather work than be "forced" to go to yet another "party". Also, when mgmt finally does say something to employees, they do it at their desk - around other employees - not in an office."

"Disaster on Every Level"

What do you like about working at Sun Life Financial?

"I did like it until new management came in, destroyed the culture and fired everyone."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"AVOID AVOID AVOID. There will be more layoffs in the future. Count on it."

What don't you like about working at Sun Life Financial?

"I worked here over five years and loved it until the end of 2008. Then new management came in and destroyed the culture. They downsized hundreds and brought in their cronies from the last company. They tried to run it like the last company. That, and the bad economy, killed Sun Life Financial. The new CEO in Canada finally cut the lossses and killed the Annutiy and Life divisions, laying off half the staff. Now they're trying to just do group insurance without a health or retirement component. More layoffs are coming."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Thanks for destroying the U.S. business. Thanks for laying off hundreds and destroying their lives and jobs. You ignored us since you showed up in 2008, so while I would say listen to your employees, you won't."
