    I have been working at Great-West Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    For the first time in years, I feel like I'm working for a well run company that values its employees. I work with smart, thoughtful colleagues and management. Hours are fairly normal. Benefits are amazing -- to include better health plans than I have had in years, matching donations to some degree, and encouraging volunteerism by providing time. Free, covered parking. A great cafeteria on-site with healthy options, plus other services such as a convenience store, medical center and dry cleaning on-site. The fitness classes and gym are greatly appreciated. Recently they introduced more casual dress which I really appreciate.

    Cons

    At this time, I don't have any.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue with your regular communications and appreciation of employees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Great-West Financial.

    Interview

    I applied for one job and they offer me another better job that wasn't posted yet based on my resume. The process was very quick. First a phone interview with HR. Then in person meeting with supervisor. Then another phone call interview with people in Denver office.
