    Pros

    They are awesome at getting you up to speed and how their operations work. The other employees are very friendly and welcoming. They paid for my P&C licensing process as well! They usually want to get you into a full time position that is why their training is very extensive.

    Cons

    The hourly wage could be a little higher.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the complete process of your workers so if one falls out you have the ability to back them up.

    Pros

    Great hours, most of the co-workers are eager to help you when you get in a bind. Benefits and perks are really great.

    Cons

    Once you are in a position, mobility is a joke. Management is another joke, let's say that the right hand does not know what left hand is doing. Did I mention the favoritism???

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue!!!

    Pros

    Security, stability and fantastic benefits package. Friendly people who care about one another and try to keep the proper balance between personal life and work life.

    Cons

    Some departments have very little room for advancement, and some people may be e over worked and not given the proper training.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes career advancement is not allowed due to an employees ability in a current position is so positive they do no want to promote them to another area.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, pretty good work environment. Not micromanaged as most inside sales jobs. Good managers. Pay for you to obtain your licenses, continuous training available. Good benefits and a pension plan. Monday-Friday 8:30-5:00.

    Cons

    No career advancement opportunities whatsoever. You'll always be a sales agent and nothing but a sales agent. Commission structure could be better. You really won't start making any real money until your 3rd or 4th year so don't expect to make a lot of money. There are a few reps who make really good money but they have been there for a while and have a lot of larger outside agent business. There is still somewhat of a "churn and burn" atmosphere whereas if you quit you'll be replaced in a week by someone fresh out of school. In the 3 years I was there I saw about 10 people come and go. Not as bad as other sales jobs I've been in but just know you're replaceable and not as valued as you think.

    Advice to Management

    Create more advancement opportunities for employees.

    Pros

    Large company that is looking to grow organically, but seems to do it more via acquisition. Mandatory sabbatical time to give a healthy work/life balance and a great benefits package.

    Cons

    Depending on the office you work in, there is a lot dirty work behind the scenes. Managers more concerned with individual success and self preservation and not interested in having a solid productive team. Many HR people are not actual HR experts and have no idea how to control the office.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have sellers working as area Presidents, it is counter productive and creates animosity between employees and management.

    Pros

    Good Compensation, most employees have been there long term, new facilities. Company pays for classes in pursuit of a related designation.

    Cons

    Management uses the stick style rather than the carrot style to encourage more production. Raises have been low for the last few years.

    Pros

    Vacation and Paid Time Off is better than any where I have ever worked. Provide Medical, contributing 401k, Life Insurance, w/ dental and vision at a small additional cost.

    Cons

    Workload is overwhelming and promotions can be lacking.
