    Pros

    The culture. Fellow employees and specific managers are awesome. Opportunity is far greater than anyone else in the area.

    Cons

    The pay sucks. Average for Fairfield but what we do isn't average for Fairfield. Terrible compared to industry and positions. I feel like some are taken advantage of because our location doesn't provide many other opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your people what they really think. Without fear of retaliation.

    Pros

    Customer Service is Friendly. Fairly wide open B/D and insurance platform.

    Cons

    A few too many hoops to jump through to submit business. Also will nickel and dime you for basic tools to support your business.
