    Pros

    People are awesome to work with and when they do company events they are a blast! The facility could use some work especially the bathrooms.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Arrowhead Insurance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work from home, car allowance, no weekends, decent benefits, flexibility in schedule

    Cons

    poor training, no warm leads, internal resources are not helpful, learn as you go and hope you learn environment, no structure, quoting systems are dated, no consistency in ANYTHING, very difficult to get "book of business" and renewal commission questions answered.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the "World Class Training" that was promised during the interview. Be honest with potential candidates about the overall company and its current structure and the turnover. Orientation should be within the first 2 weeks not months later.

    I worked at Arrowhead Insurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Friendly, casual atmosphere
    * Straight forward and well communicated expectations
    * At the time of my employment, the building had a cafeteria that served breakfast and lunch with a variety of options, which was a big plus for me.
    * The customer service department offered flexible shifts.

    Cons

    * The benefits structure was confusing
    * No 401(k) matching
    * Some of the systems were glitchy but I believe they've resolved those issues in the time since I worked there
    * Though my position was supposed to be a salaried position, my paycheck came to me in an hourly fashion which meant that the amount fluctuated.

    Advice to Management

    I honestly don't have much to say to management. The people that I keep in touch with at the company still enjoy their jobs and a few have had the opportunity to advance. Any issues that might have occurred were the normal types that happen at all offices, nothing major.

    The company has a great 401(k) match.
