    Pros

    Very easy going and relaxed environment, you may take months to complete a task, no question asked.

    Cons

    No flex hours and work from home options. People has huge difficulty adapting to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only con I would say is the management. Managers need to broaden their perspective and stop behaving like we are factory workers, we are IT professionals.

    I worked at Mutual of Omaha full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours are great. If you've done this type of job before and already have some experience it won't be so bad. BUT i would not recommend working here if you've never had a job like this before.

    Cons

    New to the industry and training only lasted for 8 hours. Seriously? This was the worst job i've ever had. I understand that i had to do all of my own work but i never felt supported doing anything. My manager was suppose to meet me 4 different times in a matter of 2 months to go out with me and show me the ropes and would cancel and leave me hanging. They left me to learn everything and do everything on my own. And then the stuff you do sell, if they cancel the policy or whatever, even after you leave you have to repay that amount. You also have to pay all taxes on the money you do make which they never told me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give better guidance to new hires. Care more about your employees to want to help them.

    Pros

    Flexability but no growth prospects. The office was located in a very prosperous area but, they did nothing to promote the products and services that could have been offered like Retirement planning and such.

    Cons

    Very little structure and no growth prospects. Very little focus on things like Retirement Planning and modern concepts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need much more structure to the office and more modern thinking. They seem like they are just going through the motions til the office closes altogether.

    Pros

    The company overall is stable and doing quite well, but at the expense of it's employees.

    Cons

    Management is absolutely horrible and lack leadership and management skills. They promote purely by attrition which ensures the old, outdated culture will never change. Upper management rules with an iron fist and couldn't care less about what the average employee thinks or how they're treated. The HR department is a joke and nobody trusts them. The pay is bad because they give only a 2% annual raise, which doesn't even cover the cost of living. They do pay out a bonus, but nobody...and I mean nobody can figure how that system works. One department gets more money than the others, etc... The biggest con really is the horrible management, just absolutely the worst people in the world. They think they are gods within the walls of Mutual, while they are really just unhappy with their lives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to your employees. Come down from the 12th floor and actually see what is happening literally beneath your noses. Hold "Town Hall" meetings and rather than a stupid multiple choice engagement survey, provide a legitimate opportunity for employees to write down what is wrong. Stop making excuses and eliminate those horrible, unethical managers that always get bad reviews...yet somehow manage to stay employed. Give raises more than 2%, because frankly that's an insult. While you sit up there with your HUGE bonuses, the average worker is having real difficulty getting by. Subsidize the food, and make it a place where people actually want to work. Oh...and seriously...fire all management, most of the managers really are horrible, horrible people.

    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

    If there were any pros to speak of I would be happy to list them. They do encourage volunteer work but only for their positive standing in the community.

    Cons

    Good ole boy attitude within the upper management. Zero tolerance is not true at this company, harrassment and unfair growth opportunities. Work/home balance is not of any value to upper management for lower than management employees. Not an open door company, many secrets and management does not care for anyone except themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue of how your sales in group insurance as increased dramatically since the head of Group and the VP of Group Insurance have taken charge. Undercut competitors rates by cutting your own throat.
