    Pros

    Good pay. The building is a city within a city, so access to a lot of things like full-service cafeteria, dry cleaning, beauty shop, while on-site. Fair holiday pay policy. Small departments work as a group with others and also independently. Co-workers are fun to work with.

    Cons

    After around 20 years, watch yourself. Just the smallest indiscretion can put you on the "to be phased out" list. 20 years doesn't mean you'll get any warning if the company perceives an issue with you. Company has layoff periods and times when they decide to let 200 people go at one time; usually IS staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Men and women should be treated equally. Allow a response if issues arise with staff. Try not to dump your long-term staff. They're loyal.

    Great Company to Work For!

    Pros

    Well established, mature company! The company's culture is shifting to one focused on work-life balance, operational excellence, and more processes that support a culture of learning which is helping to make a greater impact to results. Due to the size of the company, you can move around to get exposure to various steps within the value chain, or stay on an area and gain the knowledge and experience to become an expert in your field. Managers are shifting from a command and control mentality to a servant leadership mentality which is helping attract talent and increasing innovation amongst employees.

    Cons

    They could do a better job with employee retention if the pay was more competitive. The pay scales are set up to be competitive but managers typically hire you in the lower end of the scale, which is not very competitive with the market. Out of pocket costs for health insurance and insurance premiums are too high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue creating a servant leadership culture that supports learning! Associates are more likely to take the risks needed to achieve better results when they work this type of culture. Find a way to increase the starting salary for positions you fill so you aren't losing good people because of pay.

    Sometimes it feels like change can take longer than needed, however, this dynamic is quickly fading!

    Pros

    Working independently without supervision. No distraction. You are your own motivation and distraction, it's a choice.

    Cons

    Manager out of touch with reality and 21st century workplace; he is not abreast of how to keep committed workers. He fires a worker at the very flimsy excuse he can lay his hands on. Huge employee turnover. Bad bad bad sign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep yourself up to speed with times. Take courses on how to manage people. Being a manager is not about hiring today and firing tomorrow. GROW UP!!!

    Pros

    If you don't mind trading your values for a paycheck. It's who you know than what you know and your skills. You get to Jan how insurance really works.

    Cons

    Make promises they never intend to keep. No regard for your personal skills and talents of you're an independent thinker. They only want 'yes' people who have no issues with selling out their own colleagues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. Mgmt keeps an eye on your own.

    Pros

    Mutual of Omaha has a clear direction, develops products and services of value for its customers, and sells them at a reasonable price.

    Cons

    No onsite fitness center, no jeans Monday - Thursday, no health savings account, and compensation and benefits seem a little under par compared to other Fortune 500's in town
