    Pros

    Friends and relationships with employees

    Cons

    Unskilled management and admin in Springfield Mo. Former college athletes who hire new employees as managers over skilled tenured employees so their own incompetancy is not questioned. Virtually no one likes the director or vp's in Springfield mo and have no confidence in their decision making skills

    Advice to Management

    Let a proven insurance business leader guide the company not ex jocks. Trust over dedicated employees not college children. Pls wake up Galveston you asleep at the wheel while Springfield management sinks your company
