    Pros

    Great place to work and excellent benefits. For a large company it is very entrepreneurial. They value process improvements and most roles will have you home by 6:30.

    Cons

    Like any large, American insurance company, changes are slow. That same entrepreneurial attitude can hinder internal communications between departments

    Advice to Management

    Based on stock performance over the last three years, keep doing what you are doing.
