Pros

they will hire people with no insurance experience benefits start day one of hire they allow time off when you need or want it the computers are good, with decent tech support the training program is lengthy, and good; by the 6 month mark, you have a good knowledge base coworkers are nice

Cons

high workloads, with pressure to perform, resulting in high turnover, and brain drain different locations have different work environments people are promoted based on who they know, not necessarily merit bad managers are not removed disruptive behaviors are tolerated there is no ability to move to a different department without your manager's approval, so the choice is to stay in a bad environment, or leave the company benefits are mediocre

Advice to Management

implement policies to make work environments the same across the company reward top performers, remove disruptive employees, demote or remove bad managers implement an alternative to requiring that the immediate manager authorize a transfer to a different position in the company

    Pros

    Training and career development is encouraged. My direct manager is very knowledgable of her role and supportive. Work at home is a plus.

    Cons

    Performance reviews are very awkward and a constance source of criticism by the employees because they are not really relevant. Your raises (supposedly based on performance) are given based on a 3 tier Bell Curve of high,medium and low and the management is told exactly how many employees can be "graded" in the high performance area no matter what the individual achievement. Work/Life balance is just a catch phrase. The expectation is that you work > 40 hours a week with constant vacation/sick coverage

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees in the trenches like you award your sales and upper management staff and change the review process to reflect true pay for performance
