    I have been working at Aaa Mid-Atlantic full-time

    Pros

    The company is genuinely friendly to non-traditional families, and the educational benefit is very generous. Not very stuck on protocol internally. Even top management is very informal in everyday encounters. Benefit package is still pretty good.

    Cons

    No real effort to develop internal talent. Too many people interested in just keeping below the radar, no real push for excellence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the office! Put down the spread sheets! See if the systems and policies are doing what you'd hoped by actually using them.

    Pros

    Team environment where people care about their co workers and customers. Good work/life balance in both word and practice. Competitive benefits package.

    Cons

    You have to be patient in terms of advancement. People do have the opportunity to move up here but it takes time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to interact with employees at all levels of the organization. Keep asking for feedback from the associates and act on it. Listen more!

    I have been working at Aaa Mid-Atlantic part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    PTO, 401K CONTRIBUTION, EDUCATION FUNDS BONUS BASED ON MEETING GOALS

    Cons

    I feel like its a thankless job and sales goals are unrealistic and there are too many goals. I give excellant customer service and feell I receive no recognition, but people who meet sales goals are praised! No insurance for PT employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp goals and customer surveys!

    I have been working at Aaa Mid-Atlantic full-time

    Pros

    During the interview, everything sounded like a great place to work. People seemed very friendly.

    Cons

    The salary they advertise is not what they are willing to pay. I had communicated that the max advertised salary was my minimum. They offered $15k less and said they wanted to keep equity in pay across the board. Of course I came in with 30 years experience and their average insurance agent had 5 or less years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with people during the interview process. I spent several hours that ended up being wasted.

    I worked at Aaa Mid-Atlantic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working in the same "storefront" with my non-insurance AAA Mid-Atlantic co-workers. The whole office was fairly close and as supportive as could be. I miss the camaraderie and fun we had.
    As for the Insurace department and my manager when I was there, they were very supportive of my attempts to market AAA Mid-Atlantic as an insurance provider to a wider audience than just the "regular" AAA customer/member.

    Cons

    The sales systems were not sophisticated enough when I was there to keep other agents from "stealing" (on purpose or inadvertently) an original agent's customer or sale.

    Pros

    There are NO pros working for this company!

    Cons

    this company hires as fast as they get rid of people. If you do not sell, sell ,sell so that management makes their bonus WHICH IS ALL THEY CARE ABOUT you will be out the door. This company has training classes starting every few weeks. You are just another warm body that WILL BE replaced.

    Pros

    Pay is great if you are in the top 10 producers

    Cons

    Management is about the worst I have been involved with. A good house cleaning needs to happen in the Mid Atlantic area

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope your time is nearly up because you sure have a lot to answer for
