Pros

Friendly co-workers and managers. Fast paced work environment, autonomous, always learning, allowed employees to advance their own skills while doing their assigned jobs.

Cons

Downsizing, Best's Review downgrade, reducing local offices for a more call center type business.

Advice to Management

The local office idea when I was hired 15 years ago, was perfect for this industry. No other insurance company had local offices that they could call, get to the sales people and receive their requests immediately.

    Pros

    Dedicated group of long time employees, waiting for the new set of management to move on

    Cons

    The browner the nose, the higher you go. No real talent needed. Management has decided that a consultant's opinion is worth its weight in gold. Operational efficiency gets you only so much, no real plans to grow the business. The company is over, no interest from the market to buy the boat anchor.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about your workforce targets and what you hope to get out of efficiency. McKinsey decks get you so far, winning in the market comes out of a commitment and choice. Your strategy of selling one business unit per quarter is good, you need to move faster
