    Pros

    Good career advancement potential, strong upper management, significant talent upgrades in key areas, good work-life balance. Strong performers are recognized, and most of the dead wood is now gone.

    Cons

    Legacy issues still cloud reputation in insurance industry, after much restructuring and cost reduction, most of what is left now relates to blocking and tackling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what what you're doing

    Pros

    This is a great place to work. Unfortunately the media takes a constant doom and gloom approach to what is going on with the company. They have no real understanding of Risked Based Capital or what it means to take future charges on your balance sheet. I work well with the people on my team and in my department. I get the opportunity to travel and see some areas I would never see before. The policies we provide can save peoples homes, lives and finances.

    Cons

    Constantly in the news, AM Best rating. Employees that lack the knowledge to understand the financial numbers of the company. Therefore it is constant doom and gloom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep making changes and keep making the right decisions.

    Pros

    If you perform at a high level, you can receive recognition and autonomy; reasonable hours and benefits.

    Cons

    The culture doesn't focus on performance. Senior management is a good ol' boys club that offers lucrative contracts to associates without regard for the business outcome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan your work and work your plan. Frequent changes in direction are an almost incalculable expense. Don't keep trying the same solutions and expecting a different result.
