    I have been working at Corporate Synergies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Management works hard to make sure employees are happy and productive. Benefits and days-off are plentiful. Calm, collected environment and civilized employees. Building is well-maintained. Work/Life balance is the best I've ever worked in; easy to unplug at the end of the day and not have to check your work emails (unless that's what you like to do, control freak).

    Cons

    Too much reliance on upper management to get things done. Moving up the ladder is a little difficult and hiring/promotion often comes from the outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more authority to workers to make their own decisions. More internal promotions.

    Pros

    The people, everyone is friendly & willing to lend a hand to get the job done! The service offerings are constantly being tweaked to offer our clients the most relevant and cutting edge solutions for their business. Work/Life balance, management is respectful of your personal time and is flexible with time to deal with life outside the office.

    Cons

    Limited growth in some departments due to the size of the organization and few open positions to grow into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more education opportunities outside the internal training program so employees can grow professionally.

    Pros

    Great people, kitchen on site, close to home

    Cons

    Commissions and earnings opportunity cut numerous times. Management frowned upon team work between agents and business development personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be more of a team atmosphere between departments - not being able to talk to a sales rep is ridiculous. Constantly lowering commissions and not giving raises, does not motivate people to go above and beyond.

    Pros

    Senior Management is now taking the employees seriously where the former CEO could have cared less. This has create better dialogue and and actual air of openness. Monetary compensation is the best I've seen which helps even out the times when you are pulling your hair out from the lack of decisiveness that permeates throughout the company. The technology has really come around over the past couple of years which has helped people stay connected and be more productive.

    Cons

    True decision making is often lacking. Getting some management to respond to even routine requests is back breaking. The culture is more about getting the most quantity out of you at the expense of quality. The benefits offered to it's own employees are embarrassing, especially when you work at an insurance broker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees that are doing the work. Management group meetings are fine, and much better than the former CEO situation, but there is still an obvious top down disconnect that can be overwhelming at time. Input from employees on the decisions that directly impact them or their daily work really should be more open and reinforced positively.

    Pros

    Business model that seemed great. Company willing to spend money to make things happen. Training was first class. Offices are first class. Fellow employees were for the most part helpful and willing to work together.

    Cons

    Ex CEO had serious problems and issues in dealing with people/employees. Senior management had no decision powers, everything was micro managed by the CEO. There was too much jumping around from one initiative to another without giving things a chance to work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a realistic strategic plan and stick to it. Build solid relationships with partners other then carriers that will help to grow the business

    Pros

    Great coworkers, decent benefits, great immediate boss (best boss I ever had), beautiful new office, great technology, generous with time off, HR great at screening out undesirable workers, company truly tries to educate clients in healthcare issues, they finally got rid of our former ceo who was terribly abusive to most everyone, no one will ever go hungry here--good food around all the time

    Cons

    lack of career advances, lack of communication, need to play politics with a few Sr. Agents and certain people in certain departments, some coworkers tend to be clicky, some coworkers royally abuse the time off policy which is very generous, constant fear of job security because there is no cross training in the mostly administrative positions, you have to wonder sometimes how some of the management got into their positions because they do not have the qualifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    cross-train employees to allow for more productivity for those who want to work hard very day

    I have been working at Corporate Synergies

    Pros

    Usually there are good open lines of communication between Management and support. Very good at allowing time off for personal use, emergencies, vacation, etc. As far as employee functions, they are usually over the top. Great parties and summer picnics to show employee appreciation. The company completely embraces technology so everyone is connected.

    Cons

    Support is limited. Lines of communication are usually always open, but almost nothing is ever done about ideas or requests. There is limited informaiton sharing, even within the same departments. Even though the company is cutting edge, many times the technology doesnt work and needs time to be improved which causes delays, and lost time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, keep an open mind. Dont be a paper pusher.

    Pros

    CSG has a real commitment to the clients we have the privledge to serve. They are consistantly looking for new ways to improve processes and services. If you are looking for a fast paced environment with a real drive to provide value to customers, than CSG is for you. There is also a real understanding of work/life balance, more so than anywhere I have worked previously.

    Cons

    Smaller company with limited opportunities for advancement and growth. Salary increases are minimal regardless of how well you perform your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better plan to retain talent and provide advancement opportunities. Create a corporate model for pay increases and bonuses instead of different approach for each department.
