Pros

They are a growing company.

Cons

They do not promote from within. Almost every management position in the last 3 years have gone to outside personnel, transfers between departments is rarely if ever done. Micromanagement on every issue from top to bottom. Severe under staffing. Implements new procedures without input from staff that will have to utilize new programs to assist in determining if the new program will work or be of benefit. Making promises to new policyholders without determining if the department responsible can realistically complete the work promised. Better to tell the truth than make commitments that cannot later be kept due to under staffing, lack of necessary technology etc.

Advice to Management

Get feedback and input from staff. Encourage continuing education as promoted in the company manual but usually is declined by local management. Training for new staff - none - need to be more pro-active and not reactive to possible problems and legitimate concerns in procedures. Pat on the back on occasion for employees who excel and work 60-70 hours a week for no additional pay to keep promises management has made. Instead of just the " no one asked you too" normal response from middle management.
