Pros

Decent vacation and 401k. Salary rate isn't bad for Springfield. Some managers are okay. If you are a star employee you can get decent treatment, otherwise you are treated as totally replaceable.

Cons

Incompetent upper management. No cooperation between business units. Upper management changing their mind on direction every couple of months. No follow through. Company want you to be loyal to them but is not loyal in return. Upper management came in and replaced almost all other management and it has went down hill from there. With new managment it is all about stock price. The CO would set you on fire if they thought it would rave the stock price.

Advice to Management

Pick a direction and stay with it. Hire better managers. review compenstation packages.

    Pros

    Great people
    Target market
    most actually care about our target market
    Good pay
    Company trips are great if you attain them
    Immediate supervisor

    Cons

    Products, Products, Products- there are not enough of them to compete
    Weak life product line, to say the least
    Pricing on Property & Casualty isn't good enough to make up income lost on products
    Poor agent training due to limited training resources
    Health insurance is insanely expensive

    Advice to Management

    INVEST in the things that matter to the comnpany long term: training is such a weakness. Further, invest in a system that can sell current products, instead of just term & whole life.
