    I worked at Aflac as a contractor

    Pros

    Aflac is an amazing company that offers great incentives/ bonuses to employees.

    Cons

    You're placed on a team, and it's near about impossible to get switched to a different team. Our team leader was very patronizing and demeaning in the way she spoke to us. Several employees spoke to the manager over her several times, but nothing was ever done about it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the team members, and manage accordingly.

    There is a difference between a leader and a boss. Invest more in developing your leaders so that they can develop others. Stop hiring/promoting because you "like" the person - make sure they are qualified to lead.
