Pros

Great entry level opportunities for college graduates. Supportive work environment. Nice co-workers for the most part. With the exception of a few. Good benefits, vacation time, and salary. Management always supportive of professional growth initiatives. Consistant employee appreciation events.

Cons

Wasn't thrilled about promotion process. Personally, the life insurance industry wasnt exciting for me.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Generally family-friendly. Good insurance, great food in cafeteria. Managers tend to be mostly be fair during reviews.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity for internal job or career growth. Most new managers brought in instead of being promoted from within. Virtually impossible to get funding approved for external training.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to middle management and senior analysts instead of just being buddy-buddy with all the senior execs.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent technology and use of systems, good sense of connection between people regardless of location

    Cons

    no clear job path, horrible benefits if you need anything out of the ordinary (therapy, for example), very "clubby" as most insurance companies are - if you're not in you're out. Impossible to get decent real-time feedback, which leads to surprises during the formal review process. Inconsistent application of HR rules; some folks are late all the time, others are late once and are fired.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the development of your people; realize that they have lives outside the office; be sincere when you talk about personal development being so important
