    You Get Used To It

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFantastic work environment, great supervisors, and great family feel with co-workers. Base pay is average, shift differential + language differential help.

    ConsLittle room for growth. Co-workers that have been there 5+ years remain in the same positions.
    If you're hired as a "bilingual" sales agent, you'll never speak a word of English to customers. Have to

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to agents, they're the frontline and know what customers go through. Don't make it so hard for people to keep a policy, it is as if underwriting wishes that policy cancels, there are so many forms for customers to fill out and sign, no other insurance company does this! It's madness!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Political and Average

    Executive (Former Employee) Columbus, OH

    Pros- Benefits and work life balance

    Cons- Very political, more focus on who you know versus what you do
    - Leaders are afraid to improve as they are very risk adverse and stuck in the past
    - Leaders are all in self preservation mode and are primarily driven to maintain what they have versus doing the right thing
    - Short sighted leaders with no "balls" to speak of. Great place for spineless passive aggressive individuals to thrive.
    - Old school company (publicly says all the right things but privately worships the days of the past and remind me of a high school football player who longs for the days of old )
    - Words are louder than actions - Value is placed on what you say and how you fit in versus what you do and how you perform
    - Lots of back stabbing at executive levels and a large number of disingenuous leaders
    - Massive egos at the executive ranks
    - Executives can be bought - not so much literally but figuratively. Again massive egos, if values and pride are nonexistent then the sky is the limit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing more to say (smile).

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
