Pros

The way they treat their employees. Always receptive to new ideas and willing to listen. Lots of employees have been at the company for over 15 years which speaks well of an insurance company. Every attempt is made to keep company morale high and to encourage employees to succeed. Recognition of acheivement both financial and non-financial. Management truly cares about their employees and encourages innovation.

Repetive work which is not challenging. However, this is true of the industry. It's not easy to make insurance an exciting field.

Advice to Management

Be judicious. GIve employees the tools to do their jobs to their best ability.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits were very good. There are many opportunities for bonus and overtime.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership from management. Revolving door of management. Failure to promote from qualified candidates within Unitrin Direct Vista office to management positions. Favoritism from managers toward certain employees, including pill-popping Supervisors.
    While bonus was attainable if you worked for it, the goal was changed several times a year. At one point the company changed bonus structure to a goal no one could reach, therefore no one made bonus. Company realized this was a problem and changed goal again, but not retroactively. ie Company admitted goal was unattainable, and screwed everybody out of bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your rank and file employees, who deal with your customers and represent your business! Drug test everyone, including your management.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule if you work for the right person. Company seems to be pretty stable, during the last recession there were no layoffs. Collaboration between departments is encouraged. The company is fairly generous with time off. In the technology department, there is an effort made to advance to newer technology, but this isn't supported as much by management as it could be.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations regarding compensation - salaries are pretty low in the technology department compared to what other players in this space are doing. There's a lot of politics in the organization and quite an interesting list of "whos sleeping with who".

    Advice to Management

    Don't make promises you can't keep.
