    I have been working at Brotherhood Mutual full-time

    Pros

    Unlike anywhere I've worked before. Coworkers are consistently passionate about their roles and company direction. General sense of work enjoyment. I've recommended the company to several friends.

    Cons

    Would love to see more news on how the agents are doing.

    I have been working at Brotherhood Mutual full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Brotherhood has an amazing culture and the employees really care about helping each other and the ministries they work with each day. Good compensation package. Paid insurance training and certifications. Very family friendly company that offers great work/life balance. Those who are comfortable dealing with churches and ministries on a regular basis will love working here. It is completely unlike any other employer I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    This is an extremely conservative company so it's not for everyone. Those who do not want a desk job should look elsewhere.

    I have been working at Brotherhood Mutual full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    fair compensation, great benefits, a growing company.

    Cons

    "In the box" thinking. New, innovative ideas are not welcomed from common employees. Promotions not based on performance, but on how few ripples you can make and who you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate and promote based on actual performance.

    Pros

    The employees are so genuine and compassionate towards their work and towards each other.

    Cons

    Brotherhood has a very conservative culture, but that is smart for an insurance company especially to be fiscally responsible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge your employees to perform beyond their abilities and see what amazing things they can actually do to improve business.

    I have been working at Brotherhood Mutual

    Pros

    Growth - hiring every year without downsizing
    Annual reviews - every year like clockwork and managers are graded on quality
    Annual compensation increase with the review
    Good benefits - not stellar, but not bad
    Bonus program - A formula is used at end of year and all employees get the same % (up to 20% of salary)

    Cons

    conservative approach to change - insurance is not prone to risk
    sometimes tolerate poor performance from 'nice' employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep us growing, keep us employed, push us a little harder.

    Pros

    No pressure. work at your own pace.
    Good place to work until you retire - if you're not ambitious and are just looking for a paycheck.

    Cons

    Overly conservatiive in everything!
    No clear path for career development.
    No opportunities for growth.
    Favoritism among management.
    Too slow to adopt and innovate.
    Talent and knowledge is greatly under-utilized because of company's conservative culture
    Radical ideas are DOA
    Latest industry and business practices are non-existent.
    Lack of workforce diversity (racial).
    Women make up majority of BMIC employees esp. in low paying jobs but not in management.
    Pay not as great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The extreme conservative approach will not cut it any more. Look and learn from your competitors and the industry!
