Pros

The work life balance at FBL Financial Group Inc. was excellent in terms of very little over-time. Opportunities for professional development are a plus and the company will contribute to the costs at a fairly high percentage. The culture is fairly laid back and there is a fair amount of interaction between the management and employees.

Cons

Compensation and benefits are on the lower end. Vacation is particularly lacking considering the lower level of base pay. The bonus system is measured on a company basis instead of by department, which distances employees from an actual goal and instead seems like a random occurrence.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on keeping on.

    Pros

    - Great benefits package (insurance coverage better than most, employee responsible for 20% of insurance cost but company provides for a good portion of that 20% by giving you credits in the cafeteria plan)
    - Great coworkers - very friendly and helpful
    - good training opportunities offered in-house
    - bonuses awarded for obtaining industry certifications
    - plenty of parking and very wide parking spaces

    Cons

    - employees may be treated differently depending on what department they work in and therefore job satisfaction can very greatly between departments.
    - pay below average for industry & location
    - 50 + hours annual average per week required for all employees in my department

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, being your own boss, controlling your own income

    Cons

    quotas drive your decision making as a new agent, inheriting a book requires time and help to service
