I have been working at OneAmerica full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

First of all, the products and services they offer are very good. They are in a great location and do alot for the downtown area. There are many good people that work there and they have a defined benefit retirement plan that is great if you are there long enough.

Cons

The higher up you go in the organization the more political it gets. HR has an unbelievable amount of control over how the business is run. Their salary philosophy is to pay below average. Most people who have never worked anywere else don't realize how underpaid they are for the work they do. They are a distribution driven company meaning if you are not in sales, then your not as important. Operations is always being asked to do more with less and the IT department is one of the worst run deparments. They outsourced a lot of IT functions last year and its been a big cluster. The CIO should be fired for that move alone. Their Employee Benefits division is in shambles after the C-suite decided to let thier managers go and there is no clear plan for the future so avoid that division at all cost.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get HR out of the business lines and let the line heads actually run the business. Invest in your IT and bring your systems into the current centry. Dumb the outsourced IT idea and get that back inhouse. Talk a look at your salary structure so you can start attract better than average employees. Pay more attention to your operations. They support sales and if they are not well build, all your sales efforts eventually will leave.

    I worked at OneAmerica full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great downtown location. Very nice physical environment. Decent benefits, free parking.

    Cons

    Low pay. Since I left the company, my salary has doubled--yes, doubled. Promotions at OneAmerica go to those who kiss the most butt, and not to those who are best qualified. Too little difference between the merit increases of hard workers and mediocre workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise pay levels. Institute more difference between increases for top performers and increases for average workers.
