    Pros

    Outstanding colleagues, very team-oriented environment, tons of learning opportunities. The leadership is genuinely interested in seeing you grow in the company.

    Cons

    Not too many cons to speak of. However, you must really love the insurance industry. If you are not fully invested, you will not thrive in the community of individuals who really love the field.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Co-workers are great, fun culture, broad field of work.

    Cons

    Pay is low. Associates are demanding at times and expect you to bend over backwards for them. Limited technology resources.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees that you truly value their hard work.

    Pros

    Management values their people by listening to needs and requests and putting them into action. They promote from within.

    We work hard- very hard -and we always learn something new.

    Cons

    Technology is lacking. This creates duplication of work in terms of documentation and tracking data.

    Advice to Management

    Training is on the job only. This creates holes in knowledge base until a situation arises. There needs to be a more formalized/thoughtful curriculum to cover the many facets of what we do for employers.

    Pros

    Social culture with lots of perks and opportunities to have fun and network, open door policy with knowledgeable account executives and senior management, very understanding, compassionate leadership that truly cares about the wellbeing of associates, strong education component (especially Marine & Energy)

    Cons

    Very heavy workload, limited interaction with producers, many growth opportunities heavily based on preferential treatment of select employees

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and treat ALL associates as if they are on an equal playing field

    Pros

    On-site workout facility. Interesting location. Horizontal management structure provides ample opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Large company with inefficient systems. Unspoken rule to work extra and work during off hours in order to get ahead. A lot of initiatives from management with little understanding of how it affects employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people or provide employees with clearer guidelines regarding using your many customer service initiatives. A good idea is not a good idea if nobody buys in because they have no room in their workload to engage with it.

    Pros

    If coming into the company at an Account Executive level or higher, opportunity for growth is there, salary is fair, and much greater autonomy in managing your book of business than at competitors.

    Cons

    Office culture and expectations promote egregious levels of "sacrifice" for the company at the expense of having a life outside of work. If you are at a place in life where you can afford to place 95% of your waking energy into your job, then this is the place for you. If you value and want to cultivate many other areas of life (i.e. family, friendships, volunteer/service work, hobbies, etc.) or have extra-work commitments that you need to prioritize in life, then definitely not the place for you.
