    I have been working at United American Insurance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Can work 8-4:30 with a 30 minute lunch.
    Has a pension plan.

    Cons

    There are no raises in this department. They only pay you according to how much you key.
    Expected to key high volumes of work(ex.: must key a minimum of 60 applications per hour).
    No one really talks because they're too busy typing there fingers off.
    Has no refrigerators for employees to store lunch in(good way to get food poisoning).
    3 microwaves for hundreds of employees. Spent half of my lunch break waiting in line to heat up my food.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Studies have shown that if you care about your employees they're actually more productive. Not giving raises, providing no refrigerators, and expecting 60 apps per hour is just ridiculous, and harbors a very negative work environment. My advice is to start caring about all of your employees.

    I worked at United American Insurance part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Loved my coworkers, my schedule was flexible and I was paid fairly well.

    Cons

    No personal growth or opportunity to learn more. Very conservative and adverse to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The marketing managers were sometimes unethical and there was little communication. They did not help you, train you or care about your personal career goals and I did not see a future working with them.

    I have been working at United American Insurance

    Pros

    Stability. I don't think anyone has ever been laid off here. Also one of the few companies that pays a pension to rank and file employees.

    Cons

    Takes pride in making do with less; this means equipment is often obsolete or worn and pay is low in some company sectors. Telecom side burns through and discards human resources.

    I have been working at United American Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers. Excellent community involvement. Overall good starter job or transition job. Location is great with food close by. Decent benefits as well.

    Cons

    DO NOT accept a job in the marketing department. IT department is good but marketing also has an IT group and you should run, not walk, from any opportunity in marketing or marketing IT. Very old technology. You will not be working with anything or anyone cutting edge. You will be an island with much of the responsibility but no authority. Very low compensation in marketing compared to market rates. Make no mistake, you are not hired for your opinions or input, you are hired only for your ability to perform when and how you are told. Very limited training provided. Cubicle environment. I have literally been publicly berated for being 5 minutes late to a weekly meeting because I was addressing a critical issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I think the company is so successful financially (being an insurance company) they can fail on an enormous number of levels and still survive. You should actually invest in your employees rather than try to deplete their knowledge and patience only to replace them and retrain a new person.
