Hear what new employees are saying

I strongly feel like Securian Financial really cares about their employees — like they matter and are part of the team. Everyone I’ve met so far has been open, engaging and super helpful.

I like Securian Financial’s values. I’m glad family and volunteerism are important to the company. After going through onboarding, I feel this was the right choice for me.

As an experienced hire who has been through multiple organizations’ onboarding processes, this, by far, was the most thoughtful, insightful and beneficial introduction to an organization. The entire process and experience affirmed that Securian was the right cultural fit for me. I am so happy with my decision to accept the offer to join Securian team.

I was very impressed by how welcome everyone made us feel. I really appreciated that the focus was on the purpose of Securian and getting introduced to other Securian associates before jumping into just doing our job.
