    I worked at Protective Life (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company with great leadership and work environment. I learned a lot in my time at Protective and made many great connections.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't as high as it could have been, but then again, that is said for a lot of companies these days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep inspiring your associates to be better sales people and individuals as a whole. Never lose focus on the importance of making sure your associates have fun while they do their job.

    I worked at Protective Life (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I built a wonderful career at Protective Life. The company valued their employees and customers as much as their stockholders and investors. Wonderful benefits including a Pension Plan. Focused on doing the right thing and individual health.

    Cons

    Uncertainty with recent and potential changes in upper management as well as purchase by Japanese company, Dai-ichi. HR has more turnover than any other department, which was concerning to me. Candor is not valued enough.

    Pros

    Flex time and pension is good and you get to leave early on Fridays. Some of the people you work with are nice.

    Cons

    Favortism is the name of the game. Dead-in job with no promotional opportunities, especially in certain departments. They take advantage of the hard working employees and take it for granted that employees that have been there awhile will not leave. Micro-management is rampant and you're not allowed to do anything without getting permission first, even just simply answering or sending an email. Overworked and underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest to employees that they will never get promoted. Management needs to support their hard workers and do what they can to advocate for them with upper management if they are truly deserving of a promotion, not turn a blind eye and do nothing. Stop the favortism and stop taking advantage of the hard working employees.
