    Great benefits!

    Direct Sales Professional (Current Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsPension, 401k, tuition reimbursement, opportunities to move up if you work hard to better yourself professionally, raises every year, and work groups for all walks of life (young professionals, LGBT, African American, etc)

    Consdiminishing bonus structure, not necessarily a "con" but it's good to know upfront that management won't hold your hand to advance, you have to work hard to stand out in a building of 1000 people.

    Advice to Senior Managementbetter the work-life balance. Yes, the CCC is there to help the local agents, but working both Saturday and Sunday can quickly wear you down. I'm excited to see if this changes with the hiring of these next few classes. Another thing - please bring Sodexo back :(

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Department specific

    Anonymous (Former Employee)
    Northbrook, IL

    ProsGreat PTO, friendly people, good work life balance, nice amenities, can be a great or terrible experience based on the department. Each group has its own culture.

    ConsOverall the company is good, but I was in a terrible group. 5 people out of 10 were fired or quit. Had a terrible manager who was not liked by anyone, but was friends with her boss. Made my life very difficult, and I was forced to take a job elsewhere. HR just had a 50 percent reduction and was too busy to listen to any feedback, or provide any training to managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure you listen to employees, people will leave the company if they are not respected and appreciated.

    Admin in a local office

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
    Herriman, UT

    ProsGreat place to work, mostly because I had a great boss. I didn't know much about upper level management but the owner of the agency I worked for sold it in less than 5 years. Overall I think the company is great to work for, if insurance is your thing.

    ConsNot the most exciting job on the planet assisting people with insurance. The owner of my agency was fantastic and that made all the difference in the world. The trainings at corporate were great and they brought in some great speakers for seminars during the course of my employment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall very pleased with management. I was compensated well for the position I was in.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
