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.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Their compensation is very aggressive. Mangers are flexible with time and strongly enforce personal growth. Company pays for all continuing education. Benefits are good (2 weeks paid vacation up to the 5th year at which point 3 weeks). Always having money incentives to promote growth.

    Cons

    A large company so you have to work hard to get your name recognized. Smaller offices are compared to the larger offices. Geographically the economics change so not equal across the board.

    Advice to Management

    More incentives. There needs to be more focus on writing business and less on running reports.
