    Pros

    Good management, very open and very modern.

    Cons

    Dependent upon where you are, and who you're managers are, it can be quite stifling. Overall, I enjoy the majority of my time there, however it is clear that there are favorites and those favorites always are given a boost over where you are.


  2. Overall, a great place to work.

    Pros

    There was a good work / life balance. The flexible scheduling allowed my to attend my child's school functions, doctors appointments, etc. Most management cared about the well-being of their employees and they encouraged growth and professional development. As long as you did your job, it was a fun, open, busy place to be.

    Cons

    It can sometimes be a little like a 'high school hallway' ; meaning there were cliques and it can come down to being a popularity contest. For example, if you had a 'top star' co-worker or a 'patron' manager running campaign for you, you could get into any other department or title you wanted, but if not, your advancement options could be very limited.

    Advice to Management

    I've heard management has made a lot of positive changes, but they may want to keep a strong focus on just the professional views and actions, and not let the personal feelings and/or opinions get in the way.

    Pros

    The payscale is fair, the 401K contributions of the company is outstanding, very generous (almost ridiculous) amount of sick time, great tuition assistance program. Excellent agency relationships.

    Cons

    The company will pay for your education, but doesn't tap into your knowledge when you have finished your education; raises and bonuses continue to decline; very little opportunity for growth. You may end up doing the same tasks for many, many years without a change in responsibilities. Computers are very old as are the programs on the computers.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees for contributions to the bottom line as well as you do your agents and stockholders.

    Pros

    Good benefits and competitive pay. While Senior Management doesn't always get it right, they definitely try to create a strong corporate culture.

    Cons

    Despite good benefits and pay, morale is low. Years of impossible deadlines have lead to 60+ hr work weeks, which in turn has lead to burn out. The addition of a 'soft market' has frozen raises, adding to the widespread melancholy.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you can to increase morale.


  6. Good place to work. Most years, we like a small family

    Pros

    Company had great benifets, esp. the 401K program. On job training. Pleasant workplace.

    Cons

    We all thought the 25 yr. club was great. We were able to see old friends and talk about great experiences with the company. . It too bad the company just stopped it without telling us why. I guess it was because the Greensboro office closed. We all miss it very much.

    Advice to Management

    Since I am retired, I don't know.
