    Advice to Management

    I have been at Assurance less than a year. It is too soon to give advice. Just know that so far it seems like I made the best decision I could've made. I turned down better paying offers for Assurance and I am incredibly happy I did. I love working with you. Thank you!

    Pros

    The training program is above average. They make sure you are trained on their system before they give you your book of business.
    They have flexible hours and the opportunity to work from home.

    Cons

    The compensation is just average. But other benefit outweighs this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I have been working at Assurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Moved to Assurance in 2015 and never looked back. Love the culture here and their dedication to wellness. They have delivered on every promise that was made to me when I was hired. Also, love that I can work from home 1-2 days per week.

    Cons

    Frankly, I can't think of any. I work in the Chicago office and I am required to travel to Schaumburg office every couple of weeks. I live in the city and dislike the commute but that's the only negative thing I can say!

    Pros

    Starter job with diverse business class exposure. Means to gan a Property Casualty Producer license.

    Cons

    High turnover in services area. Poor career pathing unless you want to be a producer.

    Advice to Management

    High Turnover will never lead to 'national broker status'

    I have been working at Assurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Assurance has by far been the best place I have worked. They truly represent how companies should treat their employees. From great benefits, perks, wellness programs and incentives to hiring equally great people to work with. The culture is second to none and the hiring process ensures those great people continue to receive positions here. It is a work hard play hard environment, but also does an excellent job not losing sight of work life balance.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be innovative in your approach to the company culture, it is a major component of what makes Assurance such an awesome place to work.
