    I have been working at Manulife full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    New office, pay is good. Friendly culture. Work life balance.

    Cons

    Not much learning opportunities. Company just recruit you to do the job. Don't think about learning. Not much vision also from top management. (All the good top management have come and then left eg previous CEO was very good, Chief Banca, Chief Legal and recently the CMO. All very good and improved their functions, but Manulife could not retain them in Singapore.)
