    Pros

    Great culture, very open and down to earth folks. Work life balance is great.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth. Favoritism to say the least. Benefits are decent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management tries to keep employees up to date and engaged with the direction of the company. One of the very few companies where I saw the CEO so frequently.

    Pros

    A family like work environment with people on your team. Easier to advance to new jobs within the company when already an associate.

    Cons

    Job cuts are common and hard to get hired back when they are always doing job cuts. Its a shame that the company is financially unstable. They are always looking to do out sourcing.

    Pros

    Good compensation for those that can advance, but there is a good ole' boys club you have to join to get there.

    Cons

    Benefits keep getting reduced each year while the employee work load keeps increasing as Sr Management slashes costs by reducing headcount and cutting benefits, all the while trying to grow the business.

    Many businesses are unable to react to market changes in a timely manner due to "paralysis by analysis" mentality and being afraid of their own shadows.

    People get rewarded and advanced for sucking up rather than on their abilities, good ole' boys club.

    Human Resources is there to cater to and side with management, not the individual employee, never trust HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find more consumer friendly products that can be praised by consumer advocates. Blur the lines between the 4 existing very isolated business units ( Health, Solutions, Benefits, Specialty). If you bring a fraction of the perks and praise to the operations people as you do the sales & marketing associates you will be in a much better place.
