    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Farm Bureau Financial Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is close to home. West Des Moines is less congested than downtown Des Moines. The indoor basketball court is the highlight although it is strangely carpeted.

    Cons

    Strict working schedule. Manager is not very flexible for an IT worker. Lots of changes happening.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen the reins for employees.
