    Pros

    Positive culture, learning environment, great work-life balance

    Cons

    Behind on technology compared to other brokers. Needs better succession plan to attract, engage, and retain young talent.

    Advice to Management

    Upper mgmt should focus on getting resources not just up to par but ahead of the curve. We have a great company with little resources, imagine what we could do with better ones

  3. Very poor management, little training doing work I was not hired for and during my employment the company was being sold

    Pros

    The good news is it's stable. You work hard and show up and you are guaranteed a job. Most people are friendly.

    Cons

    Now for the bad news. Zero training. Awful pay. The majority of the office is filled with catty cliques worse than high school. Management is a joke, especially the Energy & Marine department. Have a problem with it? Don't bother going to HR...they will immediately go tell your boss what you said and your job is forfeit at that point. Save yourself the stress and serious anxiety dealing with these people and look elsewhere. You'll thank me later.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new management.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace new technology

    Pros

    Company paid Ez Tag available to employees, but other than that, it's hard to find anything else that's positive about the place.

    Cons

    Nepotism runs rampant throughout this company. Definitely a "good old boys" mentality when it comes to advancing further here. Pay is exceptionally lower than other companies in this industry. Years behind in technology uses and applications. Revolving door of employees because they discover just how underpaid they really are. Management knows how unhappy employees are, but either choose to ignore it, or believe that inaction will solve their problems. There is little to no training involved here. Glad I left when I did!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they come with a complaint, and do something about it!

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good, there are some good people working at the company. Challenging work

    Cons

    Management is poor, starting at the top. Office morale has deteriorated steadily over the past three years. Turnover is very high as employees try to find another company with a more positive work environment. Sweatshop atmosphere, which is too bad as the Atlanta branch was a nice place to work until there was a management change.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, they will tell you where the problems are and what needs to be fixed. A more professional management teams should be put into place.

  11. Fantastic sales culture
