Great Company
Implementation Analyst (Former Employee), Greenwood Village, COJune 6, 2012
Pros: security, personal, offices, general care fro employees.
I had a change of heart and wanted to pursue my Master's Degree in Education, however due to a health insurance problem I was unable to accomplish my dream. Great-West was a great company, with vision, management, and community awareness. I would strongly recommend this company to anyone.

Stale outdated finance group
Anonymous (Former Employee), Greenwood Village, COMay 2, 2012
Too many people in the same job too long. Little mobility and creativity. Using outdated processes and systems.

Poor business practices
Group Retirement Plan Correspondent (Former Employee), Greenwood Village, COApril 30, 2012
Pros: beautiful buildings, a great cafeteria.
Cons: even though they have a health insurance plan, it does not cover a lot.
Quite by accident, I discovered that the management team used spies to report to the management team on how co-workers were doing and what they were saying about the workplace. I was accidentally added to an email that floated back and forth between the department manager and supervisors suggesting people to be their spies for performance. I brought – more... this to the manager's attention and she did apologize. I wish now that I had reported it to HR. – less

BAD place to work; managers are manipulative
Software engineer (Current Employee), Greenwood Village ColoradoApril 28, 2012
Pros: great benefits, but you will be laid off after 2 years
Cons: don't know what the heck they're doing, many duplicated processes and inefficiencies
Stay away from this company! It is "old school" and years ago may have been a great, respectable place to work. Not now. They are behind the times, very antiquated processes, inefficient, manipulative managers (especially the HR department). They can't keep good people and there is a reason for that!

Business Analyst IV (Former Employee), Greenwood Village, COFebruary 2, 2012
I very much enjoyed working at GWL as it was laid-back and the people were a great bunch of fun-loving and caring folks. There was a great chance of advancement and job security. I very much felt a loyalty to this company.

Great Mid-Level Mangers
Account Manager (Former Employee), Englewood, COJanuary 13, 2012
Pros: experienced, knowledgeable, helpful managers
Cons: salaries
The teams at Great-West (FASCore) are led by constructive individuals who work in the trenches along side their teams. Middle-management at Great-West, unlike many companies, is the primary reason for their success.

Productive and well organized, uplifting morale, overtime and merit recognized.
I paid health and dental claims. (Former Employee), Detroit, MI Renaissance CenterJanuary 8, 2012
Pros: overall great company.
Cons: i had to pay $45 monthly for parking 18 years ago, the company has since left mi.
I truly enjoyed working for Great West Life. I was persistent with the supervisor, as I had no experience with paying claims.. she interviewed me and hired me right away to give me a chance. I don't recall the length of time I was in training, but the people, the management and the way the productivity was handled was all great. I left them to help – more... my brother with his business, although I hated to, it was a great company. I put my family first. – less
