No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Great-West Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Easy to work for long-term. Stable job with decent benefits. Work/Life balance is good.

Cons

Hard to get promoted. Middle managers are typically not interested in innovation or helping people advance. Not very innovative. Doesn't invest in people. Their idea of an ideal employee is some one who shuts up and does their job or 10+ years.

Advice to Management

Shake things up...

    I have been working at Great-West Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people and culture are amazing. Stability is awesome. Company has experienced a decade plus of amazing growth. Room for in job growth is great.

    Cons

    Compensation so so. Compensation increases are a problem; pay increases are capped even in the event of a promotion. Executive management is a benevolent dictatorship... not a lot of room for bottom up ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people. Provide better training. Review compensation practices. Long-term employees get burned the most.
