Pros

overall modest work hours, flexible, stress free, friendly, competent bosses, modest commute time if you live in the area, work/family balance

Cons

Pay in the investment area below average. Career path unknown. 2% pay raises implemented in 2011, well after the worst of the recession. No bonus structure which further exasperates pay discrepancy.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The work life balance at FBL Financial Group Inc. was excellent in terms of very little over-time. Opportunities for professional development are a plus and the company will contribute to the costs at a fairly high percentage. The culture is fairly laid back and there is a fair amount of interaction between the management and employees.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits are on the lower end. Vacation is particularly lacking considering the lower level of base pay. The bonus system is measured on a company basis instead of by department, which distances employees from an actual goal and instead seems like a random occurrence.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on.

    I worked at FBL Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Accounting is one of the most important business processes. With it, we know what are the gains and losses of companies, and at the same time to determine the decision.

    Cons

    the only disadvantage that could affect accounting is not automated processes to bring the volume of transactions.

    Advice to Management

    The people who run the accounting area, should be trained to fill them, since each error translates into money.
