ProsExcellent ethics - committed to doing the right thing for the policyowners
Fine salaries - not at the top but we have great amenities not found everywhere
Stable environment - being a mutual company means we can make decisions for the long term

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
