I have been working at CNO Financial Group

Pros

- Relatively flexible working schedule
- Decent benefits, outside of health care
- Competitive pay
- Commitment to employee training/education

Cons

- Incredibly poor morale
- Senior Management has taken an adversarial position with their employees
- Very poor job security - constant layoffs
- Very political - you won't advance if you aren't in good with someone
- Lot of cheap, counter-productive offshore IT resources which shifts the workload onto the already taxed stateside associates
- Far too many middle managers
- Increasingly oppressive policies

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit sending jobs overseas...remember, you sell policies in the U.S., not India! Treat your employees like resources, not expenses on your balance sheet.

    I worked at CNO Financial Group

    Pros

    easy to answer the question 'why do you want to leave Conseco' on your next job interview without being seen pretentious. People constantly leave (sometimes 1 person every month on average), so even if your real reason is you are not happy with the pay, or you can't stand your manager, you can always give a convincing and descent answer about 'job security'

    Cons

    job security, you never know when the sh*t hits the fan, which could feel like any minute when you work there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the company on the market and look for a reputable buyer: the 'Conseco' brand name ( or the new CNO) will probably not work, it would be better to sell product under 'Humana' or something ...
