    Pros

    CNO offers a good work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider focusing more on strategic objectives and less on the details of execution.

    I have been working at CNO Financial Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    A lot of overtime. Know what to expect in each job. Work autonomous. Diverse group of people. Very little supervision. Good computer systems available to do the job. Good help desk service. Can work at home and job flexibility.

    Cons

    Low wages. There is a lot of politics in order to move up. Not a friendly atmosphere. High turnover at all levels. Lower level positions are low wages. Top down type management structure. They want employees to give feedback but are not too receptive to criticism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower level positions need better raises and bonuses. Management needs to be more open to new ideas.

    Pros

    Opportuinies to excel
    Company future is looking up
    Good location

    Cons

    Not a good work life balance.
    Need to build a better corporate culture.
    Don't always seem to appreciate the efforts and dedication of their employees.
    HR is running roughshod over many other areas that are outside of their expertise. Senior leadership is letting it happen.
    Depending on which area you are in, Finiance, Operations, IT, etc. you may have a different experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is well possitioned for the future, keep it up, but don't forget about the employees who helped get you there. Key employee turnover is possible and will really hurt.
