      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Sun Life full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Strong growth on man power, expanding Hong Kong, Phillippines, Vietnam and basically all over Asia or Asia Pacific region

      Cons

      Lack in advertisement, company products lag behind market sometimes, have to restructure the product team in my opinion

      Advice to Management

      Put more resources on advertisement, product research team, to update products faster and put up more competitive products in time is very important

          Pros

          Culture is great. Respectful and values employees as an asset.

          Cons

          Management brought in from outside industry to inject 'new blood and way of thinking' can be a total hit or miss.

          Advice to Management

          Careful who you hire from outside... a foreign agent introduced to the body can make it stronger (as in the case of Penicilin), but it can also be a cancer.
