    I have been working at American National Insurance

    Pros

    Amazing products that stand out in the market, believe in customers and supporting them which is very refreshing

    Cons

    Leadership is waaaaay too old and out of touch with the needs of the sales agents front line. Super amount of turnover when it doesn't need to be this way. If your a professional in sales and insurance this place is a slam dunk 100 job but very hard place to transition to, again doesn't need to be. ...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a changing agent panel to give you real world information on the market you can use to grow sales and minimize unnecessary business friction. Get younger blood in there! You don't know what you're missing with same old people and no I'm put from a new perspective

    Pros

    Great Company Values. Look after employees.

    Cons

    Every company has something to work on. This company has few flaws. Guess the only bad thing I can think of is, offer a bit more thorough training.

    I have been working at American National Insurance (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    flexible schedule , benefits half and half

    Cons

    high lapse, horrible pay. Good only if your lapse rate can be from 0 -10 percent and you can max out your commission credits!! Have to cheat to make a paycheck. Contract need redone. No win situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Starts @ top , forgot where you came from didn't you . Nice inflated salary and nothing for you to worry about. The poor field force takes the brunt of it all for you. and you don't appreciate. look in the mirror and fix youself

    I have been working at American National Insurance full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very professional and top of the line training. The negative postings are by ex-employees. I don't know too many people that leave positive comments about an ex-employer. This is the best place that I have ever worked and in all honesty, you get what you put into it. If you don't put effort in, then your work experience reflects that.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons

    Upper management does not care at all about team members. They know how poorly their managers treat their team but don't do anything about it. HR is also aware of these managers and still do nothing about it.

    I have been working at American National Insurance full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Balanced work scheduled, those with more than 9 years have 25 days o PTO; therefore the 5 needed for sick time is taken care of. The company is a stable company.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from management. The pay is not competitive at all, senior management rip more benefits than the employees who do the actual work. For an insurance company the benefits are not great and premiums go up every year. Advancement in your career path can be a tedious journey. Systems are not sophisticated, sometimes high-end brings the quality performance desired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider how to actually motivate employee moral, provide benefits that match the premiums paid, pay employees what they are worth- wages should actually be competitive not just stated as is. Weed out management that is ineffective and detrimental to employee and company growth.

    I worked at American National Insurance

    Pros

    Once you start working there it's hard to leave. They are a very stable company. The best department is underwriting. The Senior Executive Officer is wonderful.

    Cons

    New management have taken over the Fiance area and it has turned into the worst operation in the company. Between fiance and credit avoid those two operations at all cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give promotions base on merits and not on whoever have blackmail pictures "CID".
