Pros

Great team work ability. The management is very helpful. Variety of projects to pick from. Even as an intern, you get great opportunities to learn as much as you can about various insurance products. Definitely a stable company to work for in the insurance industry. The research center always has the companies most cutting edge technology. Every intern just received brand new large computer monitors. There are over three large lcd screens all with video conferencing capabilities allowing interns to network and conference between the research center, headquarters (bloomington, IL), and with field agents if necessary.

Cons

Insurance can sometimes be a somewhat drab industry. Not the most exciting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great job trusting young employees with large amounts of responsibility and providing them with the right support.

    Pros

    Co workers are well qualified and we work well as a team.

    Cons

    When upper management gets an idea that really doesn't work and they get negative feedback from staff, they don't change the direction until it has run the course. They don't seem to be able to admit that was a wrong direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for direction from those who might know - those actually affected by the change before you spend a ton of money on that change and you could save money and keep morale hight.

    Pros

    Name recognition, great co-workers & training

    Cons

    Health Benefits are terribly expensive at Agent's office. You are paid based on sales only at my office but are required to do a lot of non-sales related work. If you sell it you should get some of the residuals along with the Agent who you work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread the wealth to Licensed Team members. Make independent Agents adhere to universal pay plan (base + commission).
