    I have been working at COUNTRY Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Corporate culture is incredible! Generous salary, incredible benefits, flexible work schedule, and support not only in your professional goals, but in personal development as well. I encourage any friends living in the area to apply!

    Cons

    This is still a full work week with goals to meet and projects to complete, so if you're looking for a place to just "get by" this isn't the place for you. The teams here work together and have fun, but they get things done!

    Advice to Management

    Continue supporting and building the camaraderie between teammates. You are invaluable in every division of this company! Thank you for leading well.
