    I worked at Church Mutual Insurance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture at Church Mutual Insurance Company is second to none. Everyone is very welcoming and are invested in what they do. The company is doing quite well financially and has great options for full-time employment. Overall, I really enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    Merrill is a pretty small town, so if you are bigger city person you might want to consider living in nearby Wausau.

    I worked at Church Mutual Insurance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a great place. ..your immediate coworkers and managers are great.

    Cons

    Expected to work excessive hours...but only have desk top so you are chained to desk. Systems are outdated. Upper management is arrogant, deceitful & out of touch with reality.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to tell people to get on board or get out, and then continue to overwork people, don’t be surprised when they leave.

    Pros

    Company car, that's about it.

    Cons

    Extreme micro management. The manager is completely clueless about insurance or what it takes to complete the necessary field work. Everyone wonders how she even got her job. Turnover is becoming very high because of it. Plan on working 60 + hours a week & documenting your every move to your manager. The job requires a lot of busy work but you will only be recognized for new sales. The rest of the busy work will be expected to be a donation of time. The company does not care about the customer, only about putting new sales on the books.

    Advice to Management

    Get real with the expectations.

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance is good. 37.5 hour work week. Benefits seem good.

    Cons

    Located in the middle of nowhere. Many employees need to drive a distance to get to work and they do not allow to work remote.

    Advice to Management

    I think your employee pool would open up if allowed remote employees.
