Pros

GREAT people, lots of freedom to build your own success, easy access to and interaction with senior management, a high level of employee support, encouragement and freedom to "be entrepreneurial", good reputation, an opportunity to be very successful in a short period of time

Cons

Not so much a con, but a caveat: the company invests a lot in its employees, and as such, there are high expectations placed on you.

Also, time off is very limited, especially the first couple of years.

Advice to Management

No company is perfect, but senior management is always striving to better the company from the roots up, and doing a great job of it. Keep up the good work.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There seems to be a significant amount of job security even when there is a rough economy. Of course, that is all dependent on being treated terribly by management. If you speak up on issues, pack your bags.

    Cons

    Very little vacation, costly health benefits, senior management disrespects employees regularly. Schedules are not flexible, and there is very little, if any room for growth. This place is a revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lowball employees and treat them like garbage and they will leave the company as fast as they can.

    Pros

    You can learn a lot from the insurance industry by working for this company as they deal with all facets of insurance. Company also pays for continuing education.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work and not enough time to get them done in a normal working day despite how fast and efficient you are. The salaries are low.

    Advice to Management

    The branch manager is very hands off and trust all employees are working hard. At the same time you are made aware of where you can improve.
