    Never a boring day!

    Major Account Executive (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    Prosability to run your own show with your books of business with minimal mgmt if you have the experience. Not routine.

    ConsNo room for females to excel or move up in the company - "its a boys club". pays the bills, but if you are looking for more; try another industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at internal employees for advancement opportunities (both genders).

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

    Overall Positive, but at times frustrating.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits, especially the 401k match and vision and dental are better than a lot of companies.

    ConsIt's still an "ole boys" club and a lot of nepotism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you have employees who want to learn more, be more, and advance. Help them out instead of saying "we'll see", otherwise the employee will become work drones that have lost the passion.

    Awful.just really awful

    Anonymous (Former Employee)

    ProsPaycheck deposited regularly and essp is ok....just ok
