    I worked at Pacific Life & Annuity full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get a paycheck at the cost of your well being.

    Cons

    This place is the worst place I've ever worked at. I actually worked there from 2001-2003. In reading the more recent reviews..not much has changed. The micro-managing, the blacklists, management explicitly telling you "a good employee is one that shuts their trap and pretend everything is good", littered with extremely poor managers. Won't even approve your educational reimbursements even though it was promised as part of the benefit. This is a sad and extremely demoralizing place to work. I was so so happy when I finally got out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it's proven over time they don't care

    Pros

    Used to be one of the best places to work in Orange County in insurance/financial services; of course there weren't and still are not many other choices. Location is good - now in two offices, both have their advantages.

    Cons

    The culture has changed in recent years. Used to be a company that very much valued its employees but that changed (and not in a good way) as management changed. Depending on the department and division, there is not much opportunity for advancement. Some departments seem to compete against others, instead of working as a team, an attitude sadly supported and led by management.

    Pros

    Benefits, Gr8 management Team, reviews YOU Review You Superiors and They Review You. Th Love you and If you Low in Performance, They Train you. Attitude, Being a Positive Team member is more important than your Schooling & Work Experience. We R together 1/3 of our LIVEs we must be Able to Get ALONG... I won Employee of The year not because I am SMart. Because of MY willing Heart to Work with All Ppl I encountered in the Workforce. Amen.

    Cons

    Recession caused down sizing. Cutbacks makes work more competitive so takes the JOY due to High demand Lower census MORe stress longer hours and MIcro management. Not a Relaxing Enviroment for Some One with Fibromyaglia Amen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apply Enjoy Be Bless, Get all they Offer so so much, They care and make Life on the Pacific Gr8.
