Great Place to work

Internal Audit Intern (Current Employee)
Carmel, IN

I have been working at CNO Financial Group part-time for less than a year

ProsIt was a good environment. No major complaints. Great compensation. Overall, it was the best place I have worked

ConsIf you like to stay busy this is not the place for you. There was an abundance of time allowed for tasks and a ton of down time.

Work hard and you'll get opportunities

Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
Carmel, IN

I worked at CNO Financial Group

ProsPlenty of opportunities for advancement and trying new or different roles if you work hard and show a sense of urgency.

ConsMany legacy systems and products that were bought over the years that were difficult to interface with each other. Many territorial people who had been there for many years and did not want to share resources or information.

Step Up to the challenges of Risks and Rewards

Senior Director (Current Employee)

I have been working at CNO Financial Group

ProsCompany recognizes employee contributions and respects personal needs to balance work and life. Workforce has diversity. There is strong focus on set of core values such as customer focus, integrity and community outreach. This company has lots of opportunities for strong growth.

ConsInvestors do not recognize the potential for growth of Conseco / Banker's Life.
There are many long tenured employees, creating an old-boy network. You have to aggressively break into the groups to be included in the teams.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to increase PR effort and build up brand identity. Industry and investor community needs to recognize that today's Conseco is not the same as in 2002. Also, it is time to bring fresh blood and infuse new ideas at the operations level to improve productivity and creativity.

Despite negative publicity, Conseco is still a good place to work.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Carmel, IN

I have been working at CNO Financial Group

ProsConseco offers its employees a plethora of training opportunities. New employees do not have to worry about a lack of Insurance Services Industry experience. Classes like LOMA and AHIP are offered each quarter. Conseco pays for its employees to take these classes. There is also a tuition reimbursement program for associates who are working on getting a degree.

ConsConseco has gone through Bankruptcy proceedings and as a result our ratings are lower than expected. In addition, there is a lot of negative publicity surrounding Conseco for the Long Term Care block of business. Despite all of this, Conseco is still a good place to work and is a company that will continue to exist and prosper well into the future.

Advice to Senior ManagementConseco employees should be given advance notice of changes before the general public becomes aware of them.

Best company for retirement planning

Senior Developer (Former Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

I worked at CNO Financial Group full-time for more than a year

ProsGood Process, Work Flow, Good office space, well matured people at times,learning will be more than earning. so think yourself before going in

ConsLate processing, Few technologies, less part on growth personally, as said earlier, learning is lot than earning. if you want good package and designations this is not the right choice

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease give training to the low level management on how to take initiatives and ownership on any issue instead of waiting for higher management always.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
