    I have been working at American Fidelity Assurance Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Family friendly culture. Company genuinely cares about its colleagues and implements policies that reflect this.

    Cons

    Slow upward mobility. The company has been around a long time, attracts top talent and the talent stays and also grows conservatively. This means that upward mobility is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Sometimes the person who does the best job is not the best to be a Lead for a team.

    Pros

    Bonuses, benefits are good, ability to work from home, dress for your day, nice work environment, PTO, their vision of a company culture is good

    Cons

    Team Lead bullies good reliable workers out of their positions by firing them or making them pursue other job opportunities outside of the company. With this comes a lack of good training due to all the people who retained the knowledge being gone. The company does not look into the loss of good employees and continues to allow team lead to effect these things.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to look further into situations to prevent from losing knowledgeable and reliable workers due to poor leadership.

    I have been working at American Fidelity Assurance Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company Car, Some time off in January and July

    Cons

    Too many too mention them all; Inept managers with stories about how they got promoted, travel 6 days for months in a row, if you are not BFF with manager you WILL get the absolute worst accounts and struggle. Many reps will say and do anything to get a sale and do not have the best interest of the teachers and staff.
    Managers do not care about this- only their numbers and look the other way.

    Advice to Management

    You want people to believe you care then managers act completely different. This starts from the top down.

    I worked at American Fidelity Assurance Company full-time

    Pros

    You get a company car that you can use for personal and business use. No personal expenses, the company pays for everything business related.

    Cons

    A lot of travel. Often you leave on Sunday afternoon and get home very late on Friday. Health insurance very poor considering this is an insurance company.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time in the field with the representatives, there is a huge disconnect between the home office and field personnel. State managers are too busy putting out fires to be of much help.

    I have worked for American Fidelity for almost 10 years. I love being part of a company that pays based on performance rather than gender. Opportunities to grow and advance are available for anyone that is willing and able to invest in their own future.

    Travel can be extensive at times but I know this is something the company is working to try to fix.
