    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Jackson National Life full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO and annual bonus

    Cons

    Work life balance is not there if you work in the Call Center. Shift bids are done every 6 months. If you are in operations for more than 2 years, it's nearly impossible to get out and transition to another department.

    I have been working at Jackson National Life part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You have the ability to excel here and the management will support you every step of the way if you have the drive. Great culture and very good experience. They bring in candidates on a referral basis and want nothing but success for anyone that works at Jackson. Also have self development programs like the FSCDP (Financial Services Career Development Program) which is a highly active group of individuals who are shaped...

    Cons

    Some negatives is you have to pay for parking if you’re a commuter to the Zone location and sometimes they bring pizza in for everyone when they know I’m on a diet. All jokes aside this is a great place to work and I can’t really find any negatives.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting and investing time into workers who show the drive and passion to do something with their careers. Management truly shows passion in what they do and it is directly reflected through the workers at Jackson.

    "Strategic Support Associate"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Strategic Support Associate 

    I worked at Jackson National Life part-time

  8. "People are great, but management is hit or miss."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Senior Fund Accountant in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Jackson National Life full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I had the best team there and the best manager there. Support was available and people were friendly. Special projects kept engagement high.

    Cons

    Projecting "our hands are tied" with regards to performance incentives can ruin confidence. The work is repetitive so half the job is finding ways to create, fix, or improve but is a road paved with the abandoned aspirations of the people before you.
