Decent company, conservative and a bit stodgy.

I worked at COUNTRY Financial full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good people meaning to do well. Strong financial position.

Cons

Small-town parochial outlook of firm. High expense ratios lead to high pricing. Agents focusing more on financial products than insurance products which form core of company. Firm may have challenges adapting to changing insurance market with increased expense pressures. Name recognition low in many states--often confused with Countrywide.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dump a couple of the small states.

    Pros

    Very good training program to help support you in your career. Nice benefit package

    Cons

    Not enough corporate positions in my area, would have to relocate - not actually a con for the company, just an inconvenience for personal advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to promote only those who are able to lead well. Have seen a lot of improvements since Kurt Bock.

    Pros

    Well structured and some great independent agents.

    Cons

    Starting out on your own is tough. Starting with an existing book of business makes it a lot easier.

    Improve IT.
