I worked at Federated Insurance full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Little supervision, good pay, this is a strong company, with good leadership at times

Cons

The way they pay you does not make you feel like you make the amount of money they tell you you're making. The 2 week program holds you at a huge disadvantage, you learn as you go which puts you in awkward positions and leaves you floating with no answers at times. This job will take you years to get in the door with larger accounts. Boring and lonely at times, you need to be passionate about insurance to get involved here.

Advice to Management

Need to be easily accessible and welcome to answering even the questions that you think employees should know, because the training is not that great unless you go through the 9 month training.

    I have been working at Federated Insurance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Private Learning Center that provides resources for future advancement * Private Gym & Fitness Classes * Provides a respectful work environment that cultivates team work and interdependence * New executive management willing to "think outside the box"

    Cons

    * Located in a small town so there is not much room for advancement unless others retire or you are willing to relocate * Some long time standing management heads can be set in their "old ways" of thinking and management * Have experience micro-managing in other departments worked in the past

    Advice to Management

    Your doing a great job! Keep freshening things up and thinking "outside the box". Federated is a great place to work for and I have enjoyed my time working for this company. You get back what you put in!
