    Pros

    They really care about you as an employee. They have a lot of great benefits and amenities specifically aimed at self improvement. And they do a lot to keep you engaged.

    Cons

    Call Center can be stressful which is the nature of the beast. But since it's annuities it's mostly old people calling about their money and that makes it a bit more stressful.

    Pros

    A challenging workplace with a large number of highly intelligent employees. Benefits are competitive. Campus in nice.

    Cons

    Actuarial staff treated like a cost center. Salaries and raises are, across the board, far below market for this industry. Poor work / life balance. Company claims to have values, but it is ultimately a sham.

    Advice to Management

    This company has a tremendously talented actuarial staff. Stop pretending like you care, and show it. Recognize employees who make contributions with appropriate financial rewards.

    More cross-functional projects will help new employees learn the corporate structure and where to find resources/assistance, as well as reinvigorating unmotivated senior employees who are looking for new challenges in a safe environment.
