    Pros

    They reward you for the work you do by giving more responsibility. Pay is not bad and there is paid overtime.

    Cons

    it can be repetetative. while managment is educated and motivated agents can be very difficult to deal with. many agent team members are clueless

    Pros

    Friendly people, very nice place to work at. The agents there were all kind to me, and answered my questions whenever I had one about their job.

    Cons

    Ended up doing menial tasks for most of the time, though this was more on my fault anyone else's. Could've taken initiative more to take on more and more difficult tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Really work with interns more and try to challenge them. If they don't meet your expectations, then give them something easier, but most interns should have strong abilities to achieve more than what you originally thing.

    Pros

    Great work environment and a lot of good friends. Pay was decent for no experience. They take care of you.

    Cons

    Not much direction from the team. You are pretty much assigned a problem and they don't really mentor you through the process of writing production level code. A lot of the work doesn't actually see the light of day.

    Advice to Management

    Make your intern's work have an impact.


  7. Great internship to have -- wonderful coworkers, laid-back atmosphere.

    Pros

    Very nice people, decent hours (9am to 4 or 5pm), I am able to work on what I want to work on throughout the day with the help of any of the office staff when I need them.

    Cons

    Lower hourly rate than what I would like, office staff is not getting commission for any of their sales, the agent gets all of it which I think is not very fair (but it does not really affect me, I just feel bad for the ladies putting in all the work)

    Advice to Management

    Encourage agents to commission their staff.

    Pros

    Gained experience and exposure to what the insurance business was all about. Had a great team and enjoyed going to work for the most part. Some good skills to add to your resume.

    Cons

    Team members aren't always perfect at agencies. Low pay as an intern. Felt somewhat dead end if you don't want to go the agent route or move to Bloomington.

    Advice to Management

    Pay team members more, other than that you do a fantastic job. I don't know a lot about the management culture at corporate.
