Current Employee - Systems Analyst I in Saint Paul, MN

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

Pros

Flexible hours and little overtime
Consistent pay increases (though not much)
Job Security
Friendly coworkers

Cons

Little incentive to motivate workers (small pay increases, too much job security)
Conservative, slow moving application development life cycle
Lack of consistency between IT departments on both administrative and technological matters

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As an IT department, I believe we need to do a better job with spreading information about the way each team does things. I feel like there is no consistency between teams, and where one team may find an efficient technology solution that information seems to migrate too slowly through to associates that are not on the reuse committees.

    I have been working at Securian Financial full-time

    Pros

    Committed to retaining employees, once you're in it's not likely you'll be "asked" to leave. One of only a few with defined benefit retirement plan. Average pay.

    Cons

    Will overwork you for the pay. EXTREME hierarchy and office politics. Good ole boys club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees and empower them to make decisions instead of concentrating everything at the top.
