    Pros

    This is a great place to work. Unfortunately the media takes a constant doom and gloom approach to what is going on with the company. They have no real understanding of Risked Based Capital or what it means to take future charges on your balance sheet. I work well with the people on my team and in my department. I get the opportunity to travel and see some areas I would never see before. The policies we provide can save peoples homes, lives and finances.

    Cons

    Constantly in the news, AM Best rating. Employees that lack the knowledge to understand the financial numbers of the company. Therefore it is constant doom and gloom.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making changes and keep making the right decisions.

    Pros

    Good career advancement potential, strong upper management, significant talent upgrades in key areas, good work-life balance. Strong performers are recognized, and most of the dead wood is now gone.

    Cons

    Legacy issues still cloud reputation in insurance industry, after much restructuring and cost reduction, most of what is left now relates to blocking and tackling.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what what you're doing

    I have been working at CNO Financial Group full-time

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, thoughtful and intuitive Management. Everyone seems interested in seeing me get ahead, not only in my career but in life. My Director has promoted from within and infuses passion throughout our Department. He doesn't lay blame. He coaches up! The Sales Team and Enterprise support are all in it together. It's not an us vs. them. I am surrounded by emotionally mature co-workers and folks focused on a career path vs. a job.

    Cons

    The salary was slightly lower ($3/$5K difference) than other job offers in the area. Insurance does not start day one.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! I am so impressed by the Management staff which is full of Leaders vs. bosses!
