    Great Company to Work For!

    Manager (Current Employee) Omaha, NE

    ProsWell 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.

    ConsThey 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 Senior ManagementContinue 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.

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

    Horrible place to work

    Claim Process Analyst (Current Employee) Omaha, NE

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

    ConsManager 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 Senior ManagementKeep 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!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Bottom line rather than the people

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) Omaha, NE

    ProsIf 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.

    ConsMake 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 Senior ManagementNo advice. Mgmt keeps an eye on your own.

    Stable company

    Manager (Current Employee) Omaha, NE

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

    ConsNo 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

    Large work environment with excellent brand recognition, work/life balance, and culture

    Information Technology Intern (Former Employee) Omaha, NE

    ProsMany are associates are older, creating opportunities for advancement into senior roles in the next 5-10 years.
    Omaha is great, but Midtown Crossing - where Mutual of Omaha is located - is even better.

    Slow adaptation of advancements in technology.
