Pros

Stable company that cares about employees. Less backstabbing than in many other large companies.

Cons

Difficult to get a promotion; many managers care mostly about themselves and managing up. Not a meritocracy.

Advice to Management

Reward managers based on how they manage talent and based on job satisfaction of their employees. Provide 360 evaluations to managers.

    Pros

    Great company in turbulent times. Great opportunities for growth personally and professionally. The management has put into place a great system to review performance on a yearly basis. It allows you to keep tabs on how you are doing on a professional level and gives you lots of opportunities to grow throughout the year. It also makes it easy to be recognized for contributions you have made. The senior leadership is very good about recognition by always fighting for a larger budget to recognize employees. They are very flexible with scheduling and making it easy to deal with life events.

    Cons

    Takes several years to work your way up even if you are already at a professional point further then where hired in. Very rigid pay scale with very little room to reward good employees.

    Advice to Management

    The old way of paying salaries is over. It is time to pay employees what they are worth and the turn around would be a lot less.

  2. Great Company. Great Opportunity for the right person

    Pros

    Best life insurance company in the US.

    Cons

    Commissioned based pay can cause some talented people to leave because of a slow month or quarter

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more hands on in the General Offices. Management at the local level seems to tell home office whatever they think they want to hear.
