    I worked at American National Insurance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good training process, most of the Managers and agents were easily to get along with and flexible with you in case of an emergency.

    Cons

    Worked only 8-4:30 pm with an hour for lunch. Would not allow low key music to be played in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Be flexible with the music in office thing and maybe just allow in afternoons or when things are slow. Many business offices do this and it makes for a happier work environment. Adjust with the times. Worked there for 15 years. (would not allow me to go any farther back on system)

    I have been working at American National Insurance full-time

    Pros

    -Flexible work hour options
    -Most co workers are decent

    Cons

    -Pay
    -Training (or lack of)
    -Benefits are expensive ($45 co pay just to see a DR). Health insurance went up 5% for 2019, yet we barely get 2-3% raises.
    -Some departments get to work from home while others can’t
    -Not enough PTO or holidays off
    -Keeps taking away any incentives there were
    -No room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Start cutting out layers of management. We don’t need so many chiefs. There’s a training department , yet the training is non-existent. If the training department is not going to be effectively utilized, cut it out. Stop wasting money on brochures and branding items to give to the employees- there’s only so many mugs or cups that we want that says American National. Save the money and start giving us better raises.
