    Pros

    Friendly work environment. Flexible work schedule. Can come and go as you please, as long as you are completing requirements. Heavily focused on training inexperienced advisors.

    Cons

    Ability to grow in position is based on many factors outside of your control. Compensation is not flexible when in a specific role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better opportunities for growth based on factors within the employees control.

    Pros

    great support, great bonus structure, great training. they work making the career better all the time. ive been with them 4 years and they have lowered the premiums on their products at least 4 times.

    Cons

    its hard work, and challenging, but anything in life that means anything is tough. underwriting can be lengthy, but the company is working to improve that every day.

    Many bonus' and goals. Company paid trips as a goal.
    The management and staff were extremely helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    It's full commission, so it does take sometime to build up clientele.

    I have been working at Mutual of Omaha full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers and staff are extemely nice, always reach out to assist when needed. Flexible hours. Excellent work-life balance. Tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Management needs to care more about the employee stress level because they are the foundation that supports the customers. Without out customers you wouldn't have employees, without employees you wouldn't customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider the stress of the employees and that more change needs to be implemented internally to stay ahead of the insurance game. You cannot promote your one of the best when internally your structure needs ongoing training and the employees should be just as important as the customer

    Pros

    Have great products compared to other insurance companies. Flexibility with schedule is great.

    Cons

    Did not provide adequate field training. You have to pay for your own licensing and once you got your license, they just throw you out there without any kind of field training or mentoring. They nickle and dime you for everything! Charges for leads and other fees ate away at your commission.

    Expensive and bad experience (sales)

    I worked at Mutual of Omaha as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Most of the agents were very helpful and friendly. Great opportunity to learn about this business.

    Cons

    Training was limited to a few days and management was disrespectful. The employment agreement makes it difficult to build your own strong, stable and secure business. There is a lot of turn-over of agents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be respectful and honest to employees. There should be zero tolerance by the office management regarding any harassment between agents.
