Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Federated Insurance full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

They had wonderful training program for inexperienced new employees (from what I understand this has been disbanded in the past year) They have clear expectations for production.

Cons

They have let go half of their Field Services Department and that has caused larger territories with more production expectations on all consultants. With the layoff of experienced employees, some close to retirement, their loyalty to employees is questionable.

Advice to Management

Raise salaries to industry standards, keep a consistent marketing plan, and reduce territory sizes. A former Risk Consultant should be in upper management to advocate for employees.

    I worked at Federated Insurance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Little supervision, good pay, this is a strong company, with good leadership at times

    Cons

    The way they pay you does not make you feel like you make the amount of money they tell you you're making. The 2 week program holds you at a huge disadvantage, you learn as you go which puts you in awkward positions and leaves you floating with no answers at times. This job will take you years to get in the door with larger accounts. Boring and lonely at times, you need to be passionate about insurance to get involved here.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be easily accessible and welcome to answering even the questions that you think employees should know, because the training is not that great unless you go through the 9 month training.
