I have been working at American Family Insurance full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent training program - income dependent on ability and desire.

Cons

Captive type agent - you have only one source of products

Advice to Management

Downsize executive management - too many directors causing an added expense factor and raising insurance rates higher than they should be. They should put more emphasis on profit on their bonuses rather than new sales.

    I have been working at American Family Insurance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great salary, benefits and, 401K.
    Lots of reorganizations but at least the option is provided to stay and relocate or receive a severance.
    Great experience that is very desirable to another company.

    Cons

    Quality of management isn't consistent across the operating territories.
    Nepotism, short and sweet.
    No refrigerators in this office. This is truly a disservice to employees that want to save money, esp. being here for 30 years.

    Advice to Management

    Leading with compassion doesn't mean you need or should have access or even ask about my personal life.
    The team building exercises, do not build the team, they frustrate employees as they can't get to their work in a timely manner.

    Cons

    • Due to the proactive approach in reducing cost, positions have been eliminated, benefits have been reduced and morale is low.
    • Middle to lower management needs an overhaul - Too many are complacent in their jobs.
    • It is a work/life balance and not a life/work balance
