    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Pros

    Great pay
    Good overtime
    Nice raises
    Good Vacation Time

    Cons

    Complete lack of management skills
    Treat their employees like children even to the point where you are made to read aloud from an underwriting manual like a bunch of kindergardeners
    Sense of Jealousy and Resentment from Co Workers and Management when you plan accrued time off
    Squeaky Wheel gets the most grease when it comes to projects and advancement at company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some advice for company is to train your management team better in how they address their employees and customers. Many of your management staff have no clue on how to manage a department or no clue on how to deal with people in general especially in your Retention department.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Pros

    You can work there forever if you do your job. They are growing but slowly. Now in 4 states may expand to others in time.

    Cons

    Work is non stop and can become boring and repetative. The phone rings constantly and they only offer 2 breaks of 5 minutes each. There is over time but not as much as there use to be.
