Pros

Pay. That's it. There was nothing else positive about this job. I took a significant pay cut just to get out of that place.

Cons

Management in the user experience team has no respect for their employees. They do not trust the UX people to change a simple control on the page. Management would verbally and publicly lecture, demean and debase employees. The technology behind the software is circa 1997. You're skills will wane there.

Advice to Management

Respect your employees. Respect their professional experience. Trust them to make good decisions. Stop being abusive.

    Pros

    I personally was able to hit all sales objectives easily in very short amount of time and bonuses at first were quiet nice.

    Cons

    Pay structure changes were frequent and there is nothing you can do about it once you have invested all of your savings into a business.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at how hard local agents work and realize that you have lost MANY wonderful agents who loved their customers dearly. Agents shouldnt have to argue with adjusters to pay claims day in and day out.
