    I have been working at Pacific Life full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    PTO and ability to purchase additional PTO

    Cons

    Micro-managed, Senior Management has no clue, raises are a joke and supervisors who do not know what you do have input in deciding what your raise will be-over your own supervisor. No possibility for promotion, they just add duties to senior employees without a raise or promotion opprotunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management really should pay closer attention to the survey they sent out this last year and take into serious consideration what feedback they received. Changing the occurance policy is only the first step to keeping qualified senior employees and to reduce the turnover. Who would want to stay with a company that doesn't reward long term employees or promote qualified candidates. They talk about values but then do not back them up. Don't forget how important Customer Service is to the company, we are treated like the red-headed step child of the company especially the Omaha office.

    I worked at Pacific Life full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice location, if you can handle traffic. Very expensive to live nearby.

    Cons

    Extremely poor leadership. Not structured like any other insurance company - titles here are NOT the same as titles at other companies, and the way they operate is unlike anything I have ever seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not promote people to management positions who have no leadership qualities. Too many in management are "doing the work" instead of leading, guiding, and mentoring their employees - no one is steering the ship.
