    Pros

    They have great benefits!!

    Cons

    You do not have an opportunity to grow with the company. You have to work there for over 5 years before you can even get a promotion. The fees that they charge their customers are outrageous!

    Pros

    They have a wonderful benefits package. Wonderful to work with customers but most managers need work.

    Cons

    The sales goals are unrealistic and create an atmosphere of product pushing. Many of the managers believe that micro management is the only management style available. Very stressful when traffic into the branch is slow. Furthermore they never have enough staff to properly achieve their customer service goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and create an open communication policy that prohibits bullying from managers.

    The corporate culture is horrible. There is no support and the fulfillment side takes so long that it ruins the business referrals you worked so hard to develop. Also, the pay is miserable. Go work for a Broker.
