    Pros

    Great group of smart, professional, friendly people to work with and to partner on projects. Exclusive programs, such as USI Educates, USI Cares and USI Gives Back demonstrate USI's commitment to corporate social responsibility. Company is only getting better as senior leadership continues to invest in resources and talent; future looks bright.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours but usually project-related and cyclical. Company expanding quickly so growing pains are to be expected. USI doesn't have a large presence yet in some areas of U.S. so more needs to be done to increase awareness.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Dynamic, growing, supportive company. It may depend on which location you work and to which team you are assigned. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Technology could stand to be updated. Some of the old guard should be retired and make room for fresh, new, innovative ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the old guard should be retired and make room for fresh, new, innovative ideas. Otherwise, not much advice to give.

    Pros

    I can't say enough good things about this firm. USI growing like crazy and yet is working hard to recognize and reward employees at all levels. They offer incentive programs for all levels, great time off and a comprehensive benefits program. Really smart people across the country.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work hard, but it will pay off. If you want to slack off or not be noticed, this is NOT the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for making the company as strong as possible, and our value propositions more compelling than any competitor. Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    The folks I work with directly are great.

    Cons

    The company does not seem to care about its employees. There are never any raises given out, of any kind, with your annual review. The benefit package is mediocre. And the current office is gross.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. There is too much "do as I say not as I do."

    Pros

    If you're willing to work hard and don't complain you will be noticed by executives. Was offered a role within a project that was highly visible to the CEO, COO and Regional VP of Marketing.

    Cons

    The employees who have been employed there for longer than 3 years were very lacks. They complained all the time and or gossiped.

    Advice to Management

    Keep check on your debbie downers and your chatty cathys. What they do does effect the work of the good employees.

    The company itself was great. Unfortunately, the team leader in our office lacked leadership skills.

    Pros

    It's such a large company that there is lots of room to grow and The opportunity to relocate to a different office.

    Cons

    There is poor regional and local management and/or leadership and no oversight or insight as to how they are treating coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time training and reviewing local "team leaders."

    Pros

    There was a moment of hope when it looked as if management was finally making strides for the better, but alas it was nothing more than an illusion. This is a terrible place with exhsausting levels of drama created by senior leadership.

    Cons

    Salary- lowest on the market, empty promises of raises and bonuses, just to string you along. Extreme cases of favoritism - they pick and choose what the want to address based on who they like the most. Quality of your work won't matter if you aren't on the short list of favorites. I was warned about this place before taking the job, this is an awful place.

    Advice to Management

    Putting people in charge of others who have no social or peoples skills is a huge mistake. I have seen great talent leave your doors and be demoted, and you ought to be ashamed for letting that happen.

    Pros

    I am a new producer at USI and love the way this company thinks about success. They are working very hard to support me, I have had outstanding sales training and my Practice Leader works with me daily to support me in prioritizing prospects, practicing call scripts, and preparing alongside other professionals for first appointment meetings. If you are dedicated to being successful you really can't go wrong here.

    Cons

    It is a very focused, highly driven environment. If you are not committed to being a successful producer than it would be hard to fit in. Not an easy place to just sit on a book.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going with the momentum that you have, keep building. This is a standout organization with the right infrastructure built for success.
