Pros

It's growth in the marketplace, it's competetiveness with other companies, it's relationships with the brokers

Cons

The salaries are not competitive, they favor hiring kids straight from college for higher position versus promoting from within. They frown upon employees using their sick time, even though they give us 8 days of it a year, we have a VP in client services who is fantatical to the point of bullying/harrassment in his attempts for us to be healthier as a means to not call in sick. We have managers who try to make us give them reasons we are using sick days.

Advice to Management

Recognize that you have some talented people working for you already. Stop hiring children for jobs they are clearly not ready for.

    "Needs to be more flexible and current. 1,000 pound gorilla that, until recently, made money in spite of itself."

    Pros

    Personally, it is the location, salary, and opportunity to switch to a service industry. People will help once they get to know you; but can take some time for others to warm up.

    Cons

    Size of company is burdensome - changes are at a pre-global warming glacial pace. Not progressive with respect to employee time flexibility options. You are more likely to get by based on who likes you than on merit, and you really do need to rely on such networks to get anything accomplished. Inconsistent systems, processes, and standards from a culture that claims to foster an "entrepreneurial" spirit - more likely a lack of urgency to properly integrate and leverage dozens of acquisitions over the years. Employees rarely feel like valued members of the company; as a result, too many are there because they've been there for years and are just biding their time to collect a pension.

    Advice to Management

    Find better ways to be more flexible and agile. Harvest and develop the talent within current ranks instead of always looking outside first.
