    Pleasant environment, great colleagues, good location.

    Pros

    The culture is very laid back and the people that work there are generally very friendly. They are bottom line focused and are less concerned with revenue growth.

    Cons

    There are very crowded at the top of the management structure and there may be little opportunity for growth given the state of the insurance market.

    Advice to Management

    Worry less about hurting people's feelings and think more about what is best for the company
