Pros

Great benefits. Great people. Diversity. Great career advancement opportunities.

Cons

Spend approximately 50% of the time on the road in relatively rural areas. Large generational gaps between baby boomers and gen y's.

Advice to Management

I suggest that the corporation continue bridging the generational gap. certain regions are doing a better job of this than others.

    Pros

    Benefits. When traveling to certain locations, the per diem and hotel expense allow for really good on-the-road living. The family friendly commitment is very real.

    Cons

    The entrenched career people (managers or not) have no respect for the experience or expertise of the term employees. The "returned annuitants" who all have outrageously excessive compensation, have a bad attitued towards everyone and everything, while still geting their pensions, benefits, and another high-level pacheck. The management is very bi-polar. Some truly good folks, some truly dysfunctional ones. Lord help you if you work for one of the latter.

    Advice to Management

    "No depositor has ever lost a penny" is their mantra. What they don't understand is that they are an insurance company that did not do it's underwriting. Ultimately, the FDIC bailout will be larger than AIG's. Sheila Bair used all the Wall Street tricks to avoid a cash flow crunch, and then got out of town. She will be looked back upon as the Alan Greenspan of regulators. To the rest of the management, one word, retire ASAP.
