    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.

    I have been working at Jackson National Life full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good bonus payouts year over year, good benefits-medical, dental, 401K, and dependent tuition.

    Cons

    Self serving leaders who manage by intimidation and coercion to maintain the status quo. Leaders at Jackson have been virtually the same for the past 20 years. Take a look at the website.......it tells the story of who is running the company. The CEO may change every few years, but the way the company conducts business and who makes the decisions is truly the Lansing leadership team. It absolutely floors me that other...

    Advice to Management

    Bring in the skills and expertise needed to shift the thinking and culture of Jackson. Promote those who are qualified, even if they haven't been with the company 20 years, related to some "executive", or the high school classmate of a senior leader. People stay because they genuinely believe in the mission of the organization, don't disappoint them by refusing to change. And in case you're wondering why I'm still...

    Pros

    Good benefits, great culture, opportunities for advancement and internal training/professional development. Would recommend if you're looking to get experience and network.

    Cons

    No maternity leave policy, you end up using all of your PTO and taking unpaid time. Staff is generally overworked, continually asking the same group of people to take on more and more projects. The sales team are the darlings of the company, all resources are thrown at them and many other departments are typically neglected.
