    Pros

    Great flexibility, positive work environment, managers show appreciation for hard work

    Cons

    Senior leadership is making decisions that are bringing down morale for remote employees

    Advice to Management

    You need to truly evaluate how much productivity and value your remote employees bring to the table before making decisions adversely affecting them.

    Pros

    I have worked in several departments during my 10+ years with the company. I have worked with great people and learned a lot. Well-paid. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Communication from management to staff could use improvement. Advising employees about major changes before they occur would be appreciated. Nothing else negative.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with employees. Seek input from people on the front lines. Don't play favorites when it comes to promotions and vacations.

    Pros

    Immediate supervisors are really good.

    Cons

    They are just like all other large insurance companies. The do not care about their employees. They recently told all remote workers, they will have to pay for their own internet in order to connect to the company computer. Seems they want you to work out of your house to save them having to rent office space, and are now refusing to pay for internet to connect to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so cheap. You placed remote field staff to work from their homes, but now refuse to provide the very thing necessary to actually do the job - internet. This was provided upon hire and now is being arbitrarily changed. Are the financials that dire, that you'll go under if you pay for internet.

    Pros

    Great company, great people, great benefits

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. The Company needs a sales leader. Since Denise came to Kemper we have missed our sales goals and plans.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to Alliance United on how to grow a business.

    Pros

    It's a job, but not a carrier if you plan to have any sort of life outside of work.

    Cons

    I started working for Alliance United in September 2014. On May 1, 2015 Alliance was "acquired" by Kemper/Unitrin Group of Companies and we took a significant cut in pay. Not the dollar amt, but the way in which they utilized live pay (10 days as opposed to 13-15 worked days paid). Overtime trails and is applied to following check. By the way overtime is frowned upon. The benefits are not worth it. But we were left with not choice. I literally only 15-20% out of pocket for most coverages and now we are at roughly 80% of out pocket for medical and dental. Management has completely flipped the switch on being nice to employees. As if we are the enemy... There is a such thing as work/life balance, this company does not allow for that.

    Advice to Management

    Those under you will eventually take your job if your attitudes do not change, although there's not much room for promotion at the company anymore. There is a such thing as work/life balance, this company does not allow for that.
