    I have been working at Jackson National Life full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at the corporate office has many benefits from state of the art facility and equipment to a great work-life balance. Benefits are extremely competitive! Minimum number of hours per week is 37.5.

    Cons

    The downside is slow career growth for certain job types. I work in IT and their projects are very long and slow to complete. Project requirements can often be swayed by those at higher levels which can result in a less quality product. Although the minimum number of hours per week is 37.5, if the minimum has been met before the end of the week you must still work the rest of the week. There's no banking time.

    I worked at Jackson National Life part-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule is the best part of the job.

    Cons

    Nepotism and favoritism runs rampant. If you are in HR’s inner circle will you get the promotion. The most qualified employees are passed over for jobs which causes smart employees to leave. It can be a hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what’s best for Jackson instead of promoting your friends & family.
