As a Field Rep. I am in charge of everything I do in my area. I love that autonomy and the ability to make decisions quickly and in the best interest of my Agents as well as my company. Cincinnati trusts me - that is huge. Cincinnati backs me up when things get weird. My underwriters support my decisions and I support theirs. It has a big family feel to it.
Funding for sponsorship in the field is a bit limited. That can be good and that can be bad. It can be good because it keeps expenses and overhead to a minimum and that helps the stock price and performance of the company. It can be bad in that it becomes a bit more difficult to get the companies name out there in my local market.
Advice to Management
Perhaps have money for marketing set aside per year per field rep. I'm not talking ten's of thousands of dollars but something under 10k would work.
I applied online. I interviewed at Cincinnati Insurance (Keego Harbor, MI) in January 2017.
Laidback. Took place at hiring manager's home. Great guy, would have been great to work for. Very candid and open. Salary range offered was very low for experience level they seek.
