Pretty building... that’s about it
AGENCY (Former Employee) –  West Des Moines, IAAugust 7, 2019
The lack of understanding that people have lives and families outside of the walls is unbelievable. They spring Mandatory OT on you mid-week (for that week). They give you PTO to use... but deny it half of the time or just never respond to your requests. You can go to HR about management and they do nothing.

Tax Specialist (Former Employee) –  West Des Moines, IAJuly 22, 2019
Was laid off shortly after Athene purchased Aviva USA so not sure about changes in the culture. The building has lots of windows and cube walls are low so lots of natural light.

New Business Representative (Current Employee) –  West Des Moines, IAJuly 17, 2019
If you are in New Business you should be looking to get out as soon as possible, the job is awful and they expect you to be flexible to them at their schedule

IT Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  West Des Moines, IAMay 25, 2019
Poisonous culture, top-heavy management, all they care about is making money. There is a great deal of attention paid to expense management, unless you're an executive. Merit increases are paltry at best for non-management

Working at Athene was quite the eye-opener. Top tier management is mostly male, who are extremely intimidating, unapproachable, and lack team management.

Nothing good to say
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  West Des Moines, IASeptember 18, 2018
They talk a good story but do not deliver. Promotion from within, only applies to select positions/groups.They make promises and do not deliver. Not a company you want to work for if trust in management is important to you.

Great place to work, with amazing people.
Contractor (Former Employee) –  West Des Moines, IASeptember 14, 2018
Athene is an amazing company to work for, and I highly recommend them to anyone with good comprehension and computer skills. Their advancement opportunities are fair, and their work-life management is on the nose too. Honestly, I've never worked for such a good company!

Work Culture is stressful
Reporting Analyst (Current Employee) –  West Des Moines, IAApril 11, 2018
Management is all over the place. Teams are constantly broken up and rebuilt. Employee turnover was extremely high. With the exception of a few people, work life was overly stressful.

It was fun to work at Athene because I was solving problems 24/7. Only around 30% of the job mas repetitive and I loved the people I worked with. Team work and communication skills are a must.

Mandatory Overtime, Weekends and No Holidays off on Quarters
Actuarial Associate (Former Employee) –  West Des Moines, IAFebruary 1, 2018
If you plan to work in actuarial doing valuation plan to work the weekends and holidays on the quarters. No overtime pay either. The extra time you put in will not be appreciated. Poor planning and direction from upper management.
Pros
The building in nice
Cons
low pay

Call Center Representative (Former Employee) –  West Des Moines, IADecember 14, 2017
You will be told one thing and then it will be switched to something else. There are some awesome people who work there. But there are also some very dreadful managers. They aren't very clear on what they want from their reps and when you don't achieve it they will make you feel bad for it.
Pros
Beautiful building
Cons
The people who are in charge
