Great company, declining morale.

Pros

Good benefits and competitive pay. While Senior Management doesn't always get it right, they definitely try to create a strong corporate culture.

Cons

Despite good benefits and pay, morale is low. Years of impossible deadlines have lead to 60+ hr work weeks, which in turn has lead to burn out. The addition of a 'soft market' has frozen raises, adding to the widespread melancholy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do what you can to increase morale.

    Pros

    Company had great benifets, esp. the 401K program. On job training. Pleasant workplace.

    Cons

    We all thought the 25 yr. club was great. We were able to see old friends and talk about great experiences with the company. . It too bad the company just stopped it without telling us why.
    I guess it was because the Greensboro office closed. We all miss it very much.

    Pros

    The payscale is fair, the 401K contributions of the company is outstanding, very generous (almost ridiculous) amount of sick time, great tuition assistance program. Excellent agency relationships.

    Cons

    The company will pay for your education, but doesn't tap into your knowledge when you have finished your education; raises and bonuses continue to decline; very little opportunity for growth. You may end up doing the same tasks for many, many years without a change in responsibilities. Computers are very old as are the programs on the computers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees for contributions to the bottom line as well as you do your agents and stockholders.
