    Pros

    I've been with the company more than 15 years and have had opportunity every step of the way. If you're a go-getter and are willing to work hard, you too will find opportunity.

    Cons

    Sometimes change is a little slow. This is typical though for large conservative insurance companies.

    I have been working at Globe Life full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work with great people who want to learn and expand their careers
    Good work to life balance
    Management goes out of their way to help you when needed

    Cons

    Team seemed unorganized when i started working with the company. It took two weeks to get the proper systems installed on my computer. I was originally assigned a laptop but was given a desktop instead. To switch from a desktop to a laptop took over 6 months.
    There is high turnover within the IT department, some employees are lifers but the majority are new. Management tends to micromanage analysts due to down time towards the end of the week.

    Advice to Management

    Add more structure for advancement, currently there seems to be little to no room for career growth unless you jump to a different team within a new department.

    Its important to give credit when due to employees that give their all to the company. Without them, the company would fail so these people need the encouragement that the company does appreciate their hard work.

    I have been working at Globe Life full-time

    Pros

    - Some very amazing people who are at their fields. Those select few are great teachers and mentors.
     - If you work with the managers of the departments, you'll learn a lot in a year.
    - Amazing pension if you stay long enough.
    - About average 401K, but with good options to select from..
    - Very close to the Westfield Mall and a local park. Great for getting out for errands or having lunch.
     - The parent company, Torchmark Corp. is good to their employees.

    Cons

    - No vertical or horizontal movement. Maybe after 5 years.
     - Small office, cubes, and lots of yelling as certain people don't want to get up and walk 20 feet.
     - Salary is not up to industry standards. The "flexibility" they offer does not make up for it.
     - Benefits besides the Pension are avg. if not lower.
     - Micromanagement from the top down, but in different words.
     - Passive-aggressive communication.
     - People have been belittled enough they cry at work.
     - Ideas and solutions are listened to, but management always goes with their own choice..
     - Not an enterprise level company / more of a division that acts as a start-up. Very lean staffed.
     - Campaigns can take months or years to launch. Things move very slow here usually, but randomly you'll have a blitz of working 80 hours to meet unrealistic deadlines.
     - No work/life balance.
    - They've lost 5 people in 5 years who report to the same person... not a coincidence.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging everything and delegate to the respective managers. And stop expecting admins to do a coordinator or specialist's job while not paying them for it.. It is great that they get to learn and grow, but it should be at their request. They're never paid enough and the stress put on them is abusive. They're team members too.
