    Pros

    Excellent benefits and a good corporate atmosphere make this a good company to work for. They strive to treat customers and employees fairly.

    Cons

    Your best bet to work well with this company is to work in corporate in Birmingham. Remote offices tend to get a little less attention and the treated fairly motto sometimes misses the mark.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better handle on career advancement in ALL departments. Bets way to lose good talent is to not have a career path for them.

    Pros

    Work - life balance was great! Benefits were awesome!

    Cons

    Office culture, to many favorites, some employees took advantage of PTO. Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Office culture and leadership needs to be addressed, to much drama, employees and management took advantage of lunch hours.

    Pros

    Keep your mouth shut and you'll keep your job.

    Cons

    You WILL NOT advance unless you personally know someone in upper management Managers make up their own rules and you MUST follow, even if they are wrong Biased as it relates to race. I've seen over 10 people quit that have been of diverse backgrounds They do not pay according to experience (as they should) You will not be trained There is no formal structure nor organization in any of the departments Those that hold technical titles have had no training or experience, job was given based on who they know.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the old heads and take a chance with more innovative and advanced individuls. Start valuing your employees. Stop making comments that degrade your employees. Compensate based on the right things (education, experience, etc) instead of based on your own discretion.

    Pros

    Management of the company treats its employees well. The benefits were good and salary competitive.

    Cons

    If you are working outside of the home office, it can be challenging to keep up with the ongoing changes. They have their formula for managing the insureds and do not deviate from that plan.

    Advice to Management

    Establish more ways for employees to contribute feedback for growth of organization. The company is very profitable but needs to find ways to grow organically, not just through acquisitions.

    Pros

    The company benefits package is great. The support staff are willing to work to make all things happen. There seems to be a lot of potential career advancement if you want to stay. The company is willing to provide certification training for employees.

    Cons

    There are political battlefields at every turn between departments. There is a shrinking and aging intellectual knowledge base at the company that cannot support future initiatives without the implementation of a strong (and forced) mentor program.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on the silo-styled infighting. Start investing in the next generation of management and support staff that will lead the company into future success. Also, provide opportunities for remotely working from home. Virtual teams are part of the future success of attracting new talent that will stay.


  10. Avoid this company

    Pros

    37.5 hour workweek Nice office space

    Cons

    Benefits suck. They provide all the good stuff like medical and dental but the premiums are high, the co-pays are high and the coverage isn't very good. Small company trying to behave like a large corporation and not doing it very well. Not very progressive. No visible piercings or tattoos allowed. Makes women cover small nose piercings and tattoos with band aids. Yeah, that looks better! Bad behavior by long time employees is tolerated by management instead of being addressed. Upper management is out of touch with what is really going on in the offices. Several senior managers are playing political games to further their own careers at the expense of good employees. Endless gossip, rumors and back stabbing among employees. Hard to know if CEO is genuine. He's a former litigation attorney so he's a skilled speaker and could also be a wolf in sheeps clothing. Very hard to effectuate change. Management won't take charge and make decisions. Endless meetings that lead no where. Compensation for managers isn't bad but hourly workers have a cap. Some long timers haven't had wage increases in years.

    Advice to Management

    Make yourselves more accessible and open your minds. Also, join the 21st century. There are highly intelligent people that have tasteful piercings and tattoos.


  11. Once a good company to work for. Many changes in last year.
