    Pros

    Free pizza and bagels on Fridays and great culture among the group, with one caveat. Comfortable office with flexible hours and good benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is very low for the area. Projects are unnecessarily aggressive and quality of software is always sacrificed. The caveat to the culture thing is that it is great if you're okay with letting standards and good development practices slide.

    Advice to Management

    Give your development staff the freedom to explore and implement things properly. Otherwise you're destined to constantly be dealing with "technical debt".

    Pros

    Positive work environment, room for growth, free coffee and lunch on Mondays. Continued education and sales training. Company paid for P&C licensing. Amazing benefits.

    Cons

    Only con was the pay! Low hourly rate and commission structure was not always realistic. Would not change conversion limits when call volume was lower.

    Pros

    Nice Bonus Structure and is fairly easy to achieve

    Cons

    Inconsistent management
    Favoritism is what influences any type of advancement in the company. Turnover rate is high as depending on who you may or may not know in the company you can be treated poorly and unfairly. Discrimination is on the rise in this company

    Pros

    They supply a company computer, works most the time..
    At home sales is better than driving back and forth to work each day.
    The paycheck has never bounced

    Cons

    Software is the worst in the industry, Telephone problems never cease, they really enjoy changing performance programs mid stream. Forget about solutions to the problems with partners like Progressive, or The General. Be sure to have your hipboots on when attending any meetings.
       Constant change..They want to bait the customer through the partner, then sell AMIG which is a higher gross policy for the company, and if you miss offering there Flood policy, you may be swimming with the fishes.. Not Funny, just the truth...It's a burn them out and replace them with the next class company... Terrible middle management....

    Advice to Management

    Give up... You really have no clue what you are doing. HAve you ever called your Partners and listened to them? Do your partners know how you want to increase dollars thru high risk policies and hopw many people you go through on the sales floor? How about how you sent an email out to the OHIO TEAM closing the doors a few years back.. They didn't even know they were done...

    Pros

    it was a job and in the beginning you could earn a half decent bonus

    Cons

    A lot. They paid a bonus not commissions. Bonuses are taxed at a much higher rate. Management could not care less about anyone. They want order takers. They made changes to the bonus structure every few months to lower the bonus payouts as much as possible not to mention forced overt time on weekends and nights quite often. They are also known to not pay claims well so they do not take care of customers like they are suppose to.

    Advice to Management

    Way past that.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to grow. Despite what the other reviewers have to say, if you are dedicated, hardworking and talented this is the place to be. It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The executive team knows what they are doing and this company is going to grow exponentially.

    Cons

    No cons, Homesite is the place to be if you have ambition and want to challenge yourself.

    Advice to Management

    In Fabian we trust!

    Pros

    Challenging work. Very strong parent company and good work life balance. I enjoy working here. I find it very collaborative and like the start up feel.

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons. The company has been a very good place for me to work and allowed me to grow.
