Featured Review

Former Intern - Intern

I worked at Jackson National Life

Pros

The company really cares about the employees, great learning opportunities, great atmosphere to work in.

Cons

None that I can think of.

Internal Regional Business Consultant

I worked at Curian Capital for more than a year

Pros

Lots of opportunity to expand your skill set while making $$$, lots of autonomy, "high" daily requirements created really good wholesalers. Huge opportunities to network within Curian, the greater... Jackson, and the financial professionals using Curian product. Obvious opportunity to eventually go outside and make truly good money.

Cons

Terrible technology underpinning the business. Daily service snafus, most of which I'm sure directly related to this vastly-underperforming back office technology.

Advice to Management

Hire more Harvard Business School types along with the Showmen when you try and launch something like this. Otherwise we all thank you for the opportunity created for us.
