Pros

Company promotes from within if you work hard.

Cons

Once you get to a higher level they do not adjust salary to be competitive with the rest of the market and do not try to retain long time employees by offering competitive pay. Many leave for much higher paying positions or positions that offer growth potential

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees! They care and want things to be better....listen to your customers! They are begging to be heard

    Pros

    Small offices and flexible management with hours worked. When Kevin was in charge profit sharing with employees. Benefits decent.

    Cons

    President left - claims department in turmoil. Not as profittable of a company as was believed. Lots of changes top to bottom with underwriting appetite. Poor systems, constantly stopping and extremely slow

    Advice to Management

    Need to trust employees more with decisions. MUST get a better systems infrastructure.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers. Average benefits. PTO policy was good until they decided to cut annual carryover time in half---many employees lost a week of vacation time in 2015. If you expect life-balance, you will be disappointed.

    Cons

    New leadership team under the direction of meddling corporate overlords has de-constructed a once fine company. "Change is Good" is the mantra, which means profit is now more important than people. The environment there is toxic for employees, independent insurance agencies and policyholders, with everyone looking over their shoulders and finger-pointing. Bonuses are only paid to a few officers and less than 5% of the staff. The "Best Places to Work" surveys that are touted by the company are driven by fear---don't be fooled.

    Advice to Management

    As a new leader, if you find that people who thrived at an organization for many years suddenly become incompetent under your management the problem is you, not them. And don't manufacture problems for you to "solve" to make yourself look good down the road.
