    I worked at Jackson National Life part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Productive environment for work where you are located behind a computer to complete repetitive tasks for hours on end. Very up to date systems and speaking with others is frowned upon

    Cons

    Extremely corporate as soon as you land in the job. You are given a corporate video and promise of movement in the company, although all you really get is the promise of a job with a .50 cent pay raise per hour if you work full time. Very poor pay for lower end full time workers.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t let interviews last months.

    I worked at Jackson National Life full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are some of the best in the industry

    Cons

    Jackson was going through mass layoffs when I was there in late 2017. You immediately become an enemy of the company when you are part of a layoff group.

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

    Pros

    The best benefits including generous PTO, retirement account matching, low premiums for health insurance and balanced schedule. I’ve enjoyed my time as a Jackson employee and if it weren’t for circumstances beyond my control I would have liked to be with Jackson for a lifetime

    Cons

    The pay could be higher but the benefits are plenty to compensate. Not many areas to approve upon I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here
