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

    Pros

    Strong conservative company. One of the best in the Variable Annuity and Annuity business. Working hard to continue to excel in technology. Good ethics.

    Cons

    Currently struggling in the annuity business with the changes being enforced by the Department of Labor. This has created confusion in the industry, and business has dropped off. This amounted in the closing of the Denver Colorado office as part of

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

    Pros

    The company has great core values.

    Cons

    Your schedule changes every 3 months. So you will be forced to work anywhere from 8:30am-8pm. It is very hard to use your paid time off. They make you compete against everyone in the same department/team as you, therefore it lowers morale. Do not hire into operations because after that it is very hard to get a job inside Jackson National Life anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn’t care about you as an employee. They treat employees like we are replaceable. They only worry about how their own career and could care less about helping you be a better employee.

    I worked at Jackson National Life full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good bonus, based off your work and behavior. Opportunity to work from home.

    Cons

    Changes supervisors a little too much. If you work from home you lose opportunities of advancement simply because they forget about you even though that shouldn’t be the case.

    Pros

    Industry leader, great product. Good environment, most people are friendly. Great training program. Finally making product changes to stay competitive.

    Cons

    Would have been a great job 5-6 years ago. Sales are down. Advancement opportunities are down. Compensation is down. Typical office politics; Nepotism and favoritism run rampant. There are really a ton of hoops to jump through and games to play in order to advance. Did I mention comp sucks?

    Advice to Management

    You have great talent here. Some loyal employees who really love Jackson. There has been a lot of turnover, simply because the earning potential or advancement opportunities were severely limited. You do a great job of training and developing talent. Find a way to keep that talent in house. That's the long term smart approach. Don't train your competition. For management, just be honest. This past year...
