    Great atmosphere, wonderful managers

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsEveryone is on your side and the management does what they can to make you feel appreciated. They encourage interaction with your fellow team mates.

    ConsThe pay is on the lower side, the systems are old and out of date, it takes 30 steps to complete something that should be done in a few steps.

    Stable environment that offers challenges and growth potential

    Regulatory Specialist (Current Employee) Columbus, OH

    ProsI love the focus on doing what is right for our members. Being mutual company affords us the ability to think and act differently - having a group dedicated to continuous improvement - focus groups that foster collaboration - and front level focus on employee engagement - all create an environment of open dialog to benefit the company, business partners and our members who choose our products and services.

    ConsBeing a large organization there are politics that can sway the overall focus. Having a plethora of administrative systems to run a business can be cumbersome and, at times irritating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember who our customer really is - it's not the agent or producer who sells the products, it's the member who chooses to use them. If we work in that space it will drive us to do the right things and to do things right... Every time.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Absolutely phenomenal company.

    Auto Claims Representative (Current Employee) Des Moines, IA

    ProsExcellent leadership -- they teach, coach and mentor. They are very supportive with any time off requirements/flex time. They will support you taking classes and shadowing in other departments to increase your opportunities for promotion. Encourage you to reach out in the community and volunteer and let you take time off work (paid, no vacation required) to support such causes.
    Just a great company all the way around, any area you can think of, this company gets 4-5 stars.

    ConsI really can't come up with any. I suppose you could make an arguement for higher salary, but for quality of life, it's pretty good. Also, I never worked in a call center environment; I'm sure you could find some cons with that area.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
