    I worked at Mutual of Omaha full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best companies I have ever worked for! Super awesome management team and your co workers are really supportive and highly encouraging. The training course they provide for the Sales and Solutions Agents is very detailed and information overloading! I only quit because I moved back to Louisiana to take care of family and i had not gotten licensed.

    Cons

    I have nothing to complain about!

    I worked at Mutual of Omaha full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of opportunities

    Cons

    very slow to make change, especially in technology. The mindset many departments is "if it isn't broke, why fix it?" No work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Be advocates for improvement, not the status quo.

    Great company striving to innovate in the Insurance industry. Therefore trying to offer more flexibility as part of the overall employee compensation package.

    Pick the right management team to run the business. More transparency with new employees seeking a career path within the company can go a long way.
