    Pros

    Biggest pro is that this is a solid company with a bullet-proof business plan. Everyone needs the product, we just need to figure out how to sell more of it. Strong/talented senior management team with great focus on the important drivers of the company.

    Cons

    Not excited about benefits package, but compensation, in general, is very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personnel retention and recruitment in this business is key to growth. Figure out a way to improve the benefits and you will be successful in the future.

    Compartmentalized mega-corporation that does not seem to understand the insurance middle-market from the inside or out.

    Pros

    The benefits package is solid and comparable to other large corporations.

    Cons

    Very little communication between departments. Rather than offices working as one team/unit, their structure is extremely compartmentalized. Example: Claims department told one thing in regional conference calls; producers told another in theirs; commercial lines told yet another story in theirs. Did not seem to be any communication between department heads at the top of the food chain, they all just tried to do their own thing (doesn't work on a local level!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the HRH people that you purchased - they understand middle market far better than you seem to.
