    I have been working at Cherokee Insurance Company (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are flexible with schedules and are able to work with you. You get yearly raises. Nice people and nice atmosphere.

    Cons

    Once you become a good worker, and it's noticed, you end up having to do everyone else's job because they know you will do it. You get over worked quickly and they don't take work away. Not everyone is given a bonus even though they deserve them. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Don't over work your good and reliable employees. Make the workers who do nothing actually do their work.

    I have been working at Cherokee Insurance Company full-time

    Pros

    It's steady work. You show up, do your work and go home. You get some good exposure and experiences to the insurance world without having to do sales. You're paid every Friday and there is some room to grow and advance

    Cons

    They could do more for employee moral. Whether it's direct management or above them, it would be nice to feel more appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees on more of a personal level. Help to boost employee moral

    Pros

    If you are reliable, have great work ethic and you perform well; it will be recognized and you will be compensated for it. Also, I enjoy the people I work with, everyone is great and very supportive.

    Cons

    The facility is a little out dated and could use some updating.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize the hard working employees and coach the ones who are falling behind.

    I worked at Cherokee Insurance Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and lower management. Lower management is willing to work around schedules. Pay is decent. Great temporary or beginning job.

    Cons

    Insurance is expensive, deductibles are high, only covers up to 80% and no vision is offered. Maximum vacation is 3 weeks (after 8 years). No holiday's off and full-time employment is 42.5 hours/week. The building itself is an old with small slits for windows. Heating and cooling in the building barely work.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation for your employees. Holiday parties, barbeques, after-work events and team-building can make a huge difference to the overall health of your company.

    I worked at Cherokee Insurance Company full-time

    Pros

    Some friendly employees, decent pay

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities at all and you will not get any feedback from management or supervisors unless you ask for it directly. You are offered very little vacation time, and it takes EIGHT full years of service to receive the common 3 weeks off. The computer programs are outdated and the company is not as efficient as they could be because of it. Distribution of work is extremely uneven, some employees are overwhelmed, while others are twiddling their thumbs with boredom. The workspace is not the cleanest, and the building itself is very outdated. Benefits are mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved! Get involved with your employees, their workloads, their tasks, their projects. Get a better idea of what is going on within the day to day activities of the company, so that workloads can be distributed more evenly, and everything can be done more efficiently. If possible, offer perks to those who are progressing and successful, but if that is not feasible, at least utilize the employees that are eager to succeed. With no real goals to work towards or higher opportunities, it may be hard to hold on to employees.

    I worked at Cherokee Insurance Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some friendly people

    Cons

    No support from upper management, no reviews are given, no advancement opportunity, very minimal or no training, very little vacation time, no help from some supervisors, outdated computer programs, uneven work loads, office building has issues frequently, little to no supervision for those that slack off, no perks or comradery between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Interact with your employees more and listen to their suggestions, they may help. Delegate more responsibility to others. Realize that certain people you have leading your departments may not be 'leading' at all - it's pathetic, distribute the work more evenly, utilize the people that actually try to do a good job. You will lose more than you gain if changes aren't made and there will be constant job turnaround. Your interview questions are horrible. Consult HR or even Google for that matter to obtain appropriate questions.
