    Pros

    Very generous with vacation time, very flexible when it comes to changing work schedule around life events

    Cons

    Management is horrible at communication, blatantly lies to employees and asks employees to lie to each other

    Advice to Management

    Open and honest communication, stop playing favorites and expecting your employees to lie to each other about it

    Pros

    People are great, people are bad. Just like any large company. New leadership making changes to improve mindsets and technology.

    Cons

    Work life balance is terrible for the folks who care. It is excellent for the folks who do not.

    Advice to Management

    We need to get better people so that the people who care don't work themselves to death.

    Pros

    Great start to a career in the health field. Probably stay for 1-2yrs and start looking. don't get too comfortable.

    Cons

    Micromanage, Lack of training, make sure you don't mess up cause if you do you'll be on the hot seat. Very sensitive to errors which is understandable, working with lawsuits ect...

    Advice to Management

    If you do a better job training your staff you won't have an issue watching their every step. Believe in your training and let them work.

    Pros

    The abundance of vacation makes the workload more tolerable, and the benefits are not the worst of any company. The ability to work remotely in many positions is very nice.

    Cons

    The continuous addition of more work responsibilities without more pay or incentives. That is unless you threaten to quit or start interviewing with other departments then they make attempts to keep you. They do not value education either no matter how many degrees you have expect to be treated the same as anyone else.

    Pros

    They pay good . The office is nice and in a nice area. The people seem to like their job. Love working here.

    Cons

    Parking sucks. Security is tight so you have to have all types of clearances and wear a badge. At least we're safe. OH YEAH and parking is really bad.

    Advice to Management

    It was very hard for me to find out about this position. They should do a better job at promoting it.

  9. Good place to start out your insurance career

    Pros

    Good training ground. Good benefits. Company gym, tennis courts, cafeteria and parking.

    Cons

    Decisions made from top and lower level employees rarely provide feedback to things that are implemented. Some managers need people skills training. Old systems. Need more socials. IT is horrible.

    Pros

    Large firm, good hours, lots of vacation and great benefits.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic. Wrong sti incentives create too many of the wrong kind of projects. Change management and HR are an enormous weakness.

    Advice to Management

    Change STI. Manage expenses and strategic change more effectively. Stop hiring upper level management without insurance experience. This is a different industry than banking.
