    I have been working at USI Insurance Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have a profound amount of respect for the talent and wonderful people in this company, especially the management team. They care about employes and making this company successful. The work is dynamic and challenging and you couldn't work with better people, hands down.

    Cons

    The pace can be rapid fire and you have to be able to manage in that environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate as much as you can to employees. Strengthen the USI brand. Employees should take pride in working for USI and this management team.

    I worked at USI Insurance Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Was close to where I lived.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Worked for them for 11 years. Basically worked 24/7 - at times worked at night. Management could ask for a report at 6 pm on Tuesday and expect it 7 am next Wednesday. Had to cancel vacations because management said so. People were hired in busy period and then literally dumped when work flow slowed down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying to employees that they valuable. Management does not care about staff. Get rid of CFO at Norfolk, VA accounting center. He is biased and discriminates against women and non-Caucasians.

    Pros

    Flexibility, forward thinking company that allows you to use creativity to solve complex problems. No "cookie cutter" deliverables. Each client is treated individually with their unique needs addressed.

    Cons

    Salary not really commensurate with knowledge or education specifically if you grow through promotions, promotion salary upgrades are more based on current salary vs. job performed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more in line with the market by way of salaries. Without annual pay raises when a promotion comes to someone the increase to pay should be in line with the work performed.

    Pros

    Opportunity! The best producer comp plan in the business and the tools to help you be successful if you are committed. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else. Strong local management that knows the business and values their employees everyday. The greatest team spirit I have ever experienced professionally.

    Cons

    The pace is fast and expectations are very high. You've got to give it your all everyday to make the most of this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay committed to your employees as they are the company.

    I have been working at USI Insurance Services part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I've worked for USI for 7 years and I'm still learning and growing every day. USI offers long term challenging careers with growth opportunity. They support and encourage continuing education. They have very good employee and business referral incentive programs.

    Cons

    They could improve in the area of onboarding new employees and training. But, they do offer more training than other places I've worked at in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to listen to employees concerns and communicate a plan to implement positive change when needed.
