    I worked at Berkshire Life Insurance Company of America full-time

    Pros

    Small town feel, great location, ability to mingle with upper management more so than in a huge corporation with benefits of a successful corporation.

    Cons

    Lack of promotion opportunities, low salaries, clicky feeling especially with management in certain departments, lack of modern thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Be more forward thinking and flexible if you want to survive the generational shift that is approaching, take a good look at your salaries and fix the problems (everyone knows the problems), re-think having one HR person that is best friends with a majority of the upper management, this really restricts employees confidence in seeking advice.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Berkshire Life Insurance Company of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers, Hours aren't terrible, 14 paid days off to start.

    Cons

    All people do is complain and management has no real idea how to progress their employee's skills. Training for new employees is a joke! No wonder why so many people quit this position. 40-50 Inbound calls per day

    Advice to Management

    Consider a training overhaul so employees want to stay.
