This company had one of the best training directors / departments that I have had the pleasure of experiencing. They need to use it more often!!
Several Sr. Managers are very disrespectful and degrading to their employees. There is no place for yelling within the workplace. Overall, it was an unhealthy, toxic environment.6

None that I can think of.
Worst company I have ever worked for. They hire successful reps from the big payroll companies and provide very little training or support. Everyone works from a home office which is very isolated. I was told by my direct manager that there is no quota for the first 90 days. Then he gave me a 30 and 60 day review at the same time, which made no sense to me. He put in my 60 day review that if I did not sell something in the next 30 days I would be terminated. I don't know how that was possible since I did not even have a quota. My supervisor and his boss were constant no shows for training meetings they set with me. Just would not show up and then have a lame excuse as to why not. My boss is constantly trying to cover up for lack of training me. He actually said 'Get a new job and I'll be a great referral for you. Just don't throw me under the bus'. Who thinks like that? Now the VP is involved and she is micromanaging me and that does not work. The whole experience has been a nightmare. The company seems to have a cancer running through it.11BenefitMall Response7y
Thank you for your feedback. It is important to provide consistent feedback to your manager with concerns about your training. Managers can provide additional training and support to help you reach your goals. BenefitMall offers its employees varied training tools to ensure their success.

The people you work with are great and management does not micro.
Training is aweful and you are constantly set up to fail.4

Big Company moves with change like a Small company is refreshing coming. Approvals for items are almost the small hour they are requested. Constant investment in to process, people, and product. Great Compensation Plan that rewards performance, simple to understand, and a stable distribution channel. Best I've seen in the Payroll industry. Big Sales Territories with training tools available internally and via manager.
Not as big as ADP or Paychex, so name recognition is not as strong.BenefitMall Response6y
Thank you for taking the time to confirm we are heading in the right direction. Please continue to provide feedback during your career journey at BenefitMall.

they paid me well to try and keep me there, it was just so they could give more work to the intern. Instead of actually investing in me with training, leadership and realistic goals, they just had me do a crazy amount of work for one person.
most everything. lack of training: I got more training at a fast food job than I did here which is a weird realization... lack of leadership. favortism is what this company does to keep people. job growth is 0 here.8

Decent base salary. Mileage reimbursement.
Constant turnover, especially in management. Anyone who did their job well always left to work for a competitor. Training consisted of computer modules and a general class in Dallas that had nothing to do with the payroll industry. No brand recognition, you will mostly rely on gimmicky promotions to make sales. Implementation team frequently causes sales to fall apart after paperwork is signed. Reps are encouraged to go behind eachother's backs to close accounts in someone else's territory. Many sales managers have never had to generate new business on their own so are not able to effectively coach new hires. Territories are frequently reassigned, making it next to impossible to establish a pipeline. BenefitMall is NOT respected in the industry, making it difficult to leverage your experience for future opportunities.5

The company is very supportive in systemic training and rewarding front line employees.
The business can be very labor intensive for all employees during certain seasons, or during organizational incidents.

Paychecks are delivered on time.
Management would knowingly violate carrier contracts to get more business from their brokers. Middle and Senior Management could care less about their employees and often viewed them as replaceable objects. They don't want to get involved in developing an employee and they couldn't care less about you or your career. Training is a circus show with someone who thinks their role is to be a comedian more than being a trainer. There are better companies to work for that will help you develop valuable skills you can use to advance your career in the insurance industry.9
