    I worked at Mutual of Omaha

    Pros

    Decent benefits, food court on site.

    Cons

    Like all companies they are looking to more done with fewer employees. Lost site of importance of the workers. No longer care about healthy work/home life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking for ways to make employees feel wanted as opposed to worried about keeping a job.

    I have been working at Mutual of Omaha full-time for more than 10 years

    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

    I worked at Mutual of Omaha full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is a house whole name and I had a mission of helping families with life insurance.

    Cons

    It commission based and you need a second job to pay to market yourself and pay for leads. This is essential in growing a business and your brand. It takes money to make money in Life Insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In addition to Term Life Insurance you should provide riders to cover all types of illness that anyone may face in life. This will allow more people to cover their premiums. Using Index Universal Life for retirement over annuities reduces risk in the market place.

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

    Pros

    Pros are for people who are in a salary based position.

    Cons

    NO support for starting agents. Poor training and misleading hiring process! This Company invented the legal robbery!!! And is exercising robbery even on their own employees. Beware!!!! Don't waist your time starting as an agent! You will be better of getting a $10/hour job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop misleading your own employees!!!!
    I am not going to recommend your products to anyone I know and care for!

    I worked at Mutual of Omaha full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In my experience, this company is full of ethical, caring, hardworking people both at the experienced field level and at the corporate office. The demeanor at all times was thoroughly professional at the office I worked at in Bloomington MN. I believe that Mutual of Omaha has an unsurpassed reputation for integrity, and I am happy to have worked for them.

    Cons

    Sometimes everyone is too busy to offer necessary advice to struggling colleagues, but that is hardly unexpected in such a demanding profession.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make available a greater menu of products than in the past, as you have been doing.

    Pros

    Flexibility, Mobility, and considered a small business owner.

    Cons

    Customers reaching out to you all time of the day, no set schedule and poor aspects of managing contractors. No real chance to make a move to upper management. Independent cut throat office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate your District Sales Managers on all products and necessary information for new Representatives.

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

    Pros

    Management was great, they all want to see everyone do well. Same goes for the employees, everyone works together to help bring everyone's chances of doing well up.

    Cons

    No salary. I would like to see a small salary for the newbies. They have a bonus program, but it is only good if you are already doing well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a great job, they are always willing to help and genuinely want to see their agents do well.
