Company reviews
"There's a lot of growing pains but has potential to do great"
Former EmployeeDeveloper
Empower overall is a good company and does have a lot going for itself. However the department I was in has some growing pains because it is taking a lot of time for the company to really accept what we do as tech experts and our advise often does not get noticed. Change is difficult to happen here because its such a large company and so a lot of the innovative work falls on the way side. Day to day can be a bit boring and not much to do a times. The management also seems to be slow to change and a bit micromanaging at times, which may show that they don't have a lot of trust in the employees. We worked remote throughout the pandemic and they are asking us to come back which personally I feel should be a choice and not be forced.
Pros:
Cons:

"Never accept any call center position."
Former EmployeeAssociate
The training from Empower was the worst ever!. Just the style of never being ready to teach and the trainers were sub standard. I did not feel they wanted anyone to learn, just shove a warm body in a chair and talk. Poor training!!

"Business model is excellent but department employee engagement is non existent"
Current EmployeeEmpower Retirement
While company overview and and "core training" are available, duty-specific training is nearly non-existent. As such, procedure changes often lack thorough review and are implemented without input from those who actually do the work, often resulting in additional changes and revisions which are not shared consistently with those impacted. Most staff are overworked (short-staffed and increasing workload) Senior Leadership changes in the last couple of years have resulted in bad morale and a loss of compassion.
Pros:
Cons:

"Challenging Job with Excellent Pay"
Current EmployeeRetirement Representative
Typical day at work includes answering about 50 inbound phone calls about retirement accounts per day. Due to Covid, you get to work from the comfort of your home. Management is great, always willing to help you achieve your goals and advance within the company.
