    Pros

    Great learning environment and very dedicated staff. Lots of opportunities to grow and develop as a professional

    Cons

    Very political...it's not what you know but who you know to a degree. Open positions are posted but in many cases the person is already selected

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Great Brand, Good Pay, Good People, Good Benefits

    Cons

    New management much more focused on short term goals at cost of a large "brain drain" in displaced employees. You are an FTE on a project plan!

    Advice to Management

    Human capital is an asset to the bottom line and not an expense.

    Pros

    A lot of nice people. Have learned a lot.

    Cons

    Departments work in silos, not as teams. Takes forever to get things done because of internal politics. My salary was below what I made previously working for large companies in Jacksonville.

    Pros

    Training provided was thorough and effective. Pay was pretty decent.

    Cons

    Management in certain areas are bullyish while others are absent. Very few managers within the organization are effective and actually lead.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead bodies! Managers that serve no purpose and focus merely on power than the work need to be removed as well as others that focus merely on friendships as opposed to actually doing the work.

    Pros

    It is a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Very tough to get paid in an accurate and timely manner. Getting paid 3 months after the sale was not unusual.

    Advice to Management

    You need to take care of your agents. Pay them in a timely manner!

    Pros

    Lots of Paid Time off to be used as sick or vacation. New CEO, making some much needed changes in the organization. Good leaders within the org if you are lucky enough to get to work for one. Many decisions are time off and work from home, etc are up to management.

    Cons

    Struggle with admin cost so they will lay people off to save a dime but spend hundreds of thousands on systems that don't work. Too much red tape for quick changes, especially IT. Though you could get a great manager, they have many who have been there for years and are poor decision makers. Going to take a while to weed them out. If they ever do.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency in policies are needed. You get plenty of time off but too busy to use it. Old school thinkers need to go. Stop hiring and promoting your friends/family and letting good people you have invested money in go to save a dime.
