Pros

Stability. Guardian has been in business for a very long time and I believe current management team has the same vision as before - stability comes first. If you are looking for a company to work until you retire - then this is it

Cons

Resources are somewhat limited - again not a growth company. Lot's of outsourcing - whether it makes sense or creates problems.

    Pros

    The work you do for Guardian makes a real differnce in peoples lives. Children will go to college, people will retire, and dreams will be achieved all because of the work you do.

    Cons

    This job is as tough as it gets. You have to prospect constantly if you want to make it. People are very reluctant to talk about money after the market crash. There is no salary at all, it's 100% commission. This leads to many FR's being very stressed out all of the time. This also makes for little little family time.

    Advice to Management

    Give FR's a salary to start. Also help them financially to get the equipment they need. People can't live off of the hope of future success.

    Pros

    Good people to work with, at times interesting work assignments are given, you have the ability to stretch yourself in the company.

    Cons

    Not so great with the work life balance, can be very demanding from a time perspective, don't feel that your compensated for going the extra mile

    Advice to Management

    As was discussed in the survey, have more transparency over compensation, improve top to bottom communications, and make people accountable.
