Current Employee - Insurance Sales Agent

I have been working at Auto Club of Southern California full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

AAA is well established and operating for almost 120 years. AAA is a reputable company. The company wants to keep their brand AAA. It is easy to sell insurance for a company that is well known and... membership that is about protecting you. I see a lot of people move up in the company and have become successful here. Even though the job has gotten harder because of the industry, it is the one place that I found where people with no college degrees can make $100,000. Most of my friends in their 20's are rolling around in BMW's, trucks and buying random toys like rock stars.

Cons

Since this company is stable, the downfall is that they are way behind in technology. Our manager told us that we are working on catching up to the times, but it is taking far too long. We have to... work on several different systems, so trying to complete a simple transaction as an agent can be a pain. There are slight upgrades like our AAA application where insureds can make changes to their policies so that it does not flood our sales line. Our managers are young, but it seems like all the older managers are getting promoted to directors or vp's.

Advice to Management

Our managers are young and need to grow up a little more. They need to be taught how to be deal with agents that have been agents before they were born!

Current Employee - Senior Systems Engineer

I have been working at Pacific Life full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Most of the workforce is positive, engaging, and an overall pleasure to work with. There is plenty of development opportunities and room to grow. The senior leadership is top notch and steers the... company in the right direction ahead of our competitors. The company has many character and culture traits that have you feeling proud to work there. I've witnessed my associates change positions several times and stay within the company and grow. Everything here just continually got better for 10 years (well so did economic growth.) I was always excited to go to work, be at work, proud of my work.

Cons

After celebrating the 150th anniversary there are sweeping changes. The amount of contracted workers coming in all areas of the business and working like FTEs and multiplying raises eyebrows. The... pace of large scale projects has become so aggressive deadlines get pushed out anyways 12 times that work life balance is headed in the wrong direction just after it normalized. The number of RIFs and outsourcing during these high income years makes the intact workforce feel uneasy.

Advice to Management

The companies products are synonymous with protection, planning, saving, growth, coverage, trust. Lets not loose these keywords for the employees.
