I worked at Jackson National Life full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Some good people here, and the hours aren't usually bad.

Cons

It's who you know that will get you the promotion - at least as much as what you do. Lots of "dead wood" making $200k+, but the company scrimps on yearly merit increases and bonuses for the "rank and file."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop awarding all the profits to yourselves and your coterie of hangers on. Good employees leave once they see how you operate.

    Young & social but terrible communication, poor training, and underappreciation

    Pros

    The company is prominently young professionals with a social, fun atmosphere. There are lots of extracurricular opportunities both within/business related and outside of the workplace. They also prefer to hire and promote from within.

    Cons

    There is little to no training, probably because besides the main, basic processes there isn't any kind of guidelines or set system on the way to do different daily requirements. This is enhanced by the awful communication. There are meetings constantly, much more than is probably necessary, which would be helpful if anything was accomplished besides setting up the next meeting. In order for one worker to get an answer to a question or something taken care of, they must ask person B to ask person C to ask person D and so on. However, even with the inability to communicate business related info, questions, etc. efficiently, any sort of gossip or opinion is taken as fact, so if you want to succeed make sure you're getting the first word in on the grapevine!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you prefer certain ways of doing things, then set up a system and standardize processes so that your employees know what is expected of them. Also, cut out the 20 middle men always necessary as well as the overabundance of meetings, all they are doing is causing excess chatter & gossip and wasting time.

    Pros

    They have a competitive compensation package

    Cons

    Their on boarding process is nonexistent. They promise the world during the recruiting process and they don't deliver. Their job descriptions are flawed, you might be hired for one thing, and be told you can't use that skills set, and they switch roles up to the point of exhaustion. Their corporate culture is toxic. The management are cluesless when it comes to digital and social network technology. Don't work here unless you want many sleepless nights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify roles
    Mentor proporerly
    Train effectively
    Boost collaboration and coaching
    Put mediation program in place
    Don't discriminate, for ADA protocol
