    I have been working at Armed Forces Insurance full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, competitive compensation, caring upper management, highly dedicated employees, high employee retention, and friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Some middle management lacks competence, experience, and educational requirements. Hypocrisy abounds with shifting standards, rules, and regulations for employees that don't apply to middle management...which is at their discretion/whim.

    Advice to Management

    Hire skilled LEADERS who inspire and motivate their employees, not merely personable talking heads. Hire middle management who know how to complete their tasks without asking their employees advice on how to complete said tasks. Hire managers who don't demean, berate, patronize, and throw subordinates "under the bus" due to their own personal incompetence.

    Pros

    Wonderful & hardworking regular employees.

    Cons

    Ineffectual & useless management at all levels. Minimal staffing requiring employees to do the work of two people (at least). Management do not accurately describe the workload, the job, or the work environment during the interview process. Consequently, most new hires leave within months because they feel duped and betrayed. Company consciously finding ways to rid itself of tenured employees who have been there for decades. Management constantly working offsite and never available for employee assistance. Not a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    For a company of 180 employees to have over 30 of them classified as "Vice Presidents", "Directors", or "Managers" says it all. Get rid of top heavy management and start adding staff who can actually produce.

    I have been working at Armed Forces Insurance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and generous leave program. Flexible working hours. No weekend hours. Profit-sharing incentive program. Telecommuting options. Promotion of healthy lifestyle.

    Cons

    Due to the long tenure of most employees, advancing to management role can take some time. Educational requirements do not take into account the valuable insurance experience that someone may have.

    Advice to Management

    Management has made great efforts to continue to be profitable and trying different channels for this. Need to keep this up.
