    Pros

    Pay is great if you are in the top 10 producers

    Management is about the worst I have been involved with. A good house cleaning needs to happen in the Mid Atlantic area

    I worked at AAA Club Alliance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Generally friendly group at the Wilmington HQ.
    - Fair work/life balance depending on your department and job requirements. Unless you are working on a large project you are not typically required to work late.
    - Some roles have flexible hours and ability to work remotely.
    - Collaborative environment - especially amongst the early career set.
    - Good leadership at Managing Director, Director+ levels.
    - Well communicated goals. Fairly easy to define and measure individual success.
    - Business is moving towards insurance and retail products, giving the brand longevity.

    Cons

    - Much larger competitive forces at work yet the largest competitor from a senior exec position was... other AAA Clubs or Holding Companies.
    - People who enjoy doing the bare minimum last for eons.
    - Management wowed by outside hires from reputable brands without examining actual ability.
    - TONS of pet projects for VIPs, wasting resources and time.
    - No talking adult to adult, everything has to be communicated pay-grade to pay-grade. Even if you are the expert in your particular area, you would be wise to have a network of people at varying grades to question, confront or even suggest issues.
    - If you are creative or ambitious in your work you will be praised and your ideas entertained but rarely will your vision be realized. If it is, be sure that middle management will take control of and credit for the work while simultaneously reducing it to a sad apparition of what once was.
    - Limited career options. You can really only work one career stage at a time there unless you make a long, long term investment or you are in an expanding department.
    - Some departments are good old boys clubs (Accounting, PR).

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at your Mid-Level managers and question their efficiency, ability and process. You have (mostly) excellent leadership from Directors and Managing Directors. There have been a lot of brilliant ideas and unbelievable opportunities that have been lost or mismanaged because of people who are no longer in touch with relevant technologies, research or best-practices calling the shots.

    Give employees the ability to speak freely and openly by creating official corporate policies that encourage this (as opposed to spending money on failed suggestion platform after failed suggestion platform).

    Treat your field employees better, because how you treat them is how they will treat the people who sign your paychecks.
