Great Learning Environment
Good ability to move through the company
Management is very open in sharing its plans for the future

Cons

Working responsibilities can be changed frequently
Has several departments which can sometimes cause completion of a task to be slow

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company is headed in the right direction but still has some work to do. My advice would be to keep doing what they are doing given we keep making great improvements each year.

    Leadership is honest to the companies goals. That is definitely appreciatable. Leadership should look at the possibilities to make the processes lightweight to generate more output.

    Incompetent hiring practices. The Standard does not ensure the employee's success. No training.

    Pros

    If you need a little time off, they are flexible to a point. This is a positive for the organization.

    Cons

    Incompetent hiring practices. The Standard does not ensure the employee's success. No training even though training was promised. Overall, training is not provided in any adequate form. One hour here and there and that's the "2-week training." Additionally, they really sell the training for the Account Manager job. If you do not have experience as an Account Manager in Retirement Plans, avoid this job. It will be your worst nightmare. Work/life balance is not present. Management is not fair, and promotions are few and very far between. You will be stuck in a "white collar production" environment. Hamster on a wheel without knowledge as to how to keep in balance on the wheel. Turn and burn environment. Not very intelligent business practices.
