Annuity Case Manager
Hi I currently process annuity new business applications for Symetra. I am looking to move into insurance underwriting as they do pay more. I’ve been in insurance since 2019. Does anything that works as an insurance underwriter have any tips on how to get into that department? Thanks!

What are your colleagues talking about?
Incredible depth of knowledge in the sales org. Really, really solid products. Management is friendly, willing to coach, and helps you be more efficient. Benefits are good, even for an insurance company: day 1 healthcare at zero cost, no-hassle and no-questions assistance from HR if you don't understand a benefit class, and best in class retirement savings matching. On top of that, they're just good, hard-working people. Coworkers are largely very nice to work with, overall. Everyone is pretty set on exceeding goals, too. The company provides unlimited opportunities for education and advancement, both through higher education payments and through internal education. Swiftnet is rich with information for employees, as well, and the ERGs are fantastic resources and peer groups. Recognition, praise and pay are all there - I felt welcomed and valued from the moment I onboarded.
There's a lot of "telephone" - and I don't mean our jobs. I mean, instead of communicating effectively and directly, people tend to hear, then reinterpret creatively, directives from management, or come up with new ones from whole cloth. It creates an environment where people struggle to find the actual benchmarks. I tend to ask management directly for guidance instead of collaborating with coworkers from other related, but separate, teams.
