    This well is poisoned!

    Customer Service (Current Employee) Birmingham, AL

    ProsThey do have a gym and on sight nurse.

    ConsBenefits have dwindled. Entrenched management. Two class society. Advancement is based on who you can cover for rather than skill or knowledge. Human resources turns blind eye to obvious abuses. Managers who have no business managing while people with law degrees work the phones waiting for a better job opportunity. Fake.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean house!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good place to work

    Annuity Analyst (Former Employee) Birmingham, AL

    ProsNice office, it has a gym and a cafeteria. My manager was good.

    ConsThey keep up with whether you are sitting at your desk or not through the movement of your computer mouse. It feels very big brotherish to know your manager will get an email informing them of the amount of time you were away from your desk.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent work environment tailored towards meeting the needs of the individual and openly likes to promotes from within

    Staff Accountant (Former Employee) Birmingham, AL

    ProsEmployee focused and friendly atmosphere with personal training, access to upper management and mentors. Provide opportunities to individuals who show an aptitude and interest in a given area. Career planning advise and help available in an easy to follow path. Allow employees to leave work early every Friday (when I was there). Appreciate people with initiative awarding their hard work and are willing to truly consider new ideas to processes, etc.

    ConsNot a lot of flexibility about work hours or leaving for a period when all work is complete even while on salary. When starting a new area with a new skill set the individual can sometimes feel left to their own devices and not be able to readily find help to proceed with task. Location access is just off of Hwy 280, which has intense rush hour traffic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is great that individuals are given the opportunity to work on new skill sets, therefore advancing their careers, but it would be good to make sure resources are readily available to assist them with the challenges experienced when working expanding their skill set.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
