    Pros

    Pay, actual 9 to 5 work hours, amount of paid time off, the excitement you get from some people when you save them alot of money.

    Cons

    Test to be come licensed (in Texas) is difficult. Customer disconnect. Can be boring at times. Not meeting sales goals just once can be cause for immediate unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    Only having worked at 1 agency the upper management was nice, easy, and understanding to talk to about issues. If all upper management is this way than I have no advice to offer.

    Wonderful team of people to work with/for. Flexibility in working hours and option to work remote is extremely helpful as a working Mom.

    No bonus until Manager level. Sometimes it's difficult to keep motivated with all of the hard work and long hours I put in, knowing there is not a bonus incentive.

    Balance the work loads and keep in consideration projects and committees we are constantly pulled into.

    Pros

    They are very socially conscious. Willing to help work around your schedule. They also offer a great deal of additional training.

    Cons

    The companies decisions show they are too beholden to shareholders, who appear to come first. Most every pro is there to make sure you think they care.

    Advice to Management

    Put the customers first, the employees second, and the shareholders last.

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement up to $5,250, many employee resource groups dedicated to employee development, many career opportunities. Generous paid time off. You get 14 days when you start that is pro-rated based on your hire date. Then in January of the following year you will have 20 days. There is no sick time. There are 8 paid holidays. There is a lot of work life balance and flexibility to work from home.

    Cons

    It is hard to move up within the company unless you have serious political savvy skills and have an advocate willing to help you get promoted. Promotions are not always about how hard you work or what value and contributions you make. Benefits are high deductible plans and high premiums.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take credit for your employee's work, empower your employee's and give them the chance to grow and prepare for the next level, share with them the work that you are doing so they can learn. Don't keep things from then such as the reasons why things happen.
