    I have been working at John Hancock full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great perks. Good blend of work and life, work from home schedule, 9 paid holidays, including vacation and personal time. Paid maternity and paternity leave. Promotes diversity and safe working environment. You can learn and grow on the job, taking additional training, and by networking with other business areas and employee resource groups.

    Cons

    John Hancock under pays, espcially in emerging tech roles (e.g. scrum master, product owner). Always negotiate with John Hancock if offered a job. They will start at a below mid-point offer. You usually can go to another competitive firm that will offer much more money for doing the same job.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lot great talent a John Hancock, it's not always appreciated, but the company is taking strides to improve that.
