    I have been working at Reinsurance Group of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked here for many years. Corporate exec leadership is more in touch with lower level employees than many other large corporations. Local, Minneapolis leadership is friendly and approachable. The structure is a matrix, so most people have a dotted line to a few different departments. This sometimes is frustrating, but more often in my experience, it allows you to get involved in different projects when you want. In this company, that is a great way to earn a promotion - given the organization is relatively flat. Generally, scheduling is flexible and the benefits like paid time off are fabulous. They definitely support the balance between work and family life. Over the years, I have seen 5-10 people leave the company for another opportunity and almost every single person has tried to find a way back into the organization. That is a testament to how great this company is to work for.

    Cons

    The organization in Minneapolis is relatively flat - especially because many employees have been here for 15+ years. That sometimes has led to some stagnation - but in recent years, there has been a good amount of new hires due to growth - which will open up the company perspective. There are lots of opportunities to expand your career, but you have to be willing to move to St. Louis or to a different country.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great benefits, smart and considerate co-workers, brilliant management, great trust with clients

    Cons

    Hard to think of one other than whatever uncertainty there is with the CEO eventually retiring, but even that isn't a huge detail because of strong executives who are able to fill in and largely already are doing so.

    I have been working at Reinsurance Group of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with RGA for almost 4 years, and have been very happy here. My supervisor is great, pay is great, and the flexibility is great. I feel like a have a good work-life balance. It has been nice to dress casually, although that policy is changing soon to become business-casual (still not too restrictive, though).

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons.
