EmployeeWorked at Ameritas Life Insurance Corp. in Lincoln, NE at the time of review.

What I like

Ameritas values our community involvement and provides paid volunteer hours over and above our PTO. We are very involved in the local community and are a pacesetter for the United way in our city.

What I dislike

Working holidays is not paid at double-time but time and a half.
No mentoring program.
Professional development is largely self-directed.

Suggestions for improvement

Break rooms on each floor. Free coffee.
Holiday pay at 2x, not 1.5
Mentoring program
Leadership development for people interested in leadership positions, not just those who are already there
