    I worked at Unitrin full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very laid back environment
    Most people are nice
    They send you to training to learn new things
    Benefits are very nice. Pay is okay.

    Cons

    I guess this goes to every company, but a few people who have been working there since their old company was absorbed by Unitrin are arrogant and rude.

    Pros

    Good location. Convenient parking. A nice area with lots of options for lunch.

    Cons

    Very heavy workload, unreasonable expectations. Very little overtime approved, yet managment expected you to work overtime on your own time. No raises for anyone for two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have a more resonable work load. Quality of managers varies. Some managers are great, other will embarrass you in front of your coworkers by showcasing your mistakes to everyone. My manager did this to me and got reprimended by her manager. .

    I worked at Unitrin full-time

    Pros

    Competitive Salaries. Welcoming atmosphere. Knowledgeable colleagues who are always willing to help you out. Plenty of time to work on each project. Very reasonable deadlines. A lot of advance notice given about company restructuring. Genuinely cares about the well-being of their employees. Eight hour days with flexible hours. Many learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Currently going through a lot of company restructuring. Jobs are not very secure right now. This is a small Insurance company that is unable to compete with giants like Geico, Progressive, etc. Doesn't allow for much upward mobility.
