Pros

Free coffee - that's about it

Cons

Executive management is unethical, and fires anyone that stands up and tries to do the right thing
Education is not valued, and they choose to hire individuals with no education so they can get off "cheaper"
president of the company hires all his friends from other bankrupt companies and then collects an $800.00 referral fee when they are hired
Solid employees that are trying to make a difference are fired or run off because they dare to refuse to commit fraud or discriminate
Members of the executive team that have been hired by the President as friends are actually inept at basic job functions, and make perilous business decisions everyday due to their ignorance.
Agents/CSR's are told to work six days a week as a salaried employee, and not given a day off between Dec-Apr - if they object, they are fired.
There is no one to go to with grievances because the corruption starts at the top - there are no employee advocates
Company policies are followed at whim, if they are even interpreted correctly by Executive Management - most of the time, decisions are made without regard to company policy or precedent
Acceptance is the lowest paying company in this industry, they KNOW it, and they don't care.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Stop intimidating employees and threatening them with their jobs if they don't want to be complicit in discriminatory/illegal activities
-Stop hiring your friends and getting rid of anyone that actually knows how to do their job
-Stop taking kickbacks, referral fees and bonuses illicitly when your employees haven't seen a raise in almost three years
-Stop firing employees for telling you that a business decision you have made/are making is not only illegal, but not in the best interest of the company
-Stop referring to the front line employees as "chattel" and treating them like dogs - you catch more flies with honey.
-Stop lying to peoples faces
-Stop lining your pockets while the lowest paid employees in your company, the ones that MAKE the profit, go uncompensated.

    Pros

    Agents and field personnel are great to work with and really care about their customers. They go the extra mile.

    Cons

    New management is sometimes unethical, and manages by intimidation. Field is left to fend for the themselves in making sales goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the ivory tower and visit your stores. Listen to the field for suggestions. Hire some women in management for goodness sake!

    Bleak - you could be underpaid, not valued, and bullied elsewhere!! Check out Alfa Visions, or any of the competitors!

    Pros

    Your coworkers will come together with you in a "we're all in this together" kind of way. You'll meet people who will give you a reference for the real job you get after this one.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible (government assistance is better), pay is terrible, upper management is a joke - the president hires his friends in and collects referral bonuses on them. No real investment in people, just a lot of hot air, and the people that really want to make a difference are sidelined/punished from coming forward.to improve how things are. Unethical, unprofessional, poorly managed from the highest levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit hiring your buddies from bankrupt companies, bother to learn how an actual insurance business and claims work, and quit letting the President get referral bonuses for his old drinking buddies - everyone's talking about how wrong that is, and it's embarrassing. I've been here for years, and they keep lying about how it's getting better - it's really not, and we all can see it. It probably looks good when you're raking in fat bonuses and referral fees!!
