Pros

the location is good since it is in the city and near water st and wall st. The company is under what a NYC company should be paying. But the required week hours is 35. A good company to work for if you are nearing retirement or would like to find a company to retire for. The company is conservative but effective. The company offers a pension plan.

Cons

Slow paced company. Locations are only in NYC and PA. Salaries are lower than AIG, etc. Tuition Reimbursement is 2k a year. 401k match is low. not as many half days as other company's.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need more tuition reimbursement.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Retirement security - pension plan, reasonable hours, profit sharing/401(k) plan, pleasant co-workers, good location

    Cons

    No promotions from within, management is disorganized and inconsistent - company is adrift, having brought in senior management from stock companies without a general agent network, to a mutual life insurance company with a STRONG GA network., poor working conditions - old filthy carpets,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together - organize, start steering the ship on the course that got us where we are and get rid oof all the new executives hired from Pru and other stock companies
