Pros

Some ability to work from home if management permits it

Some managers do actually care about their staff, but they are few and far between

Cons

Salaries are lower than comparable companies in the area

Focus is on politics between departments, not in how to work together

Emphasis is on how to not spend money which leads to staff not having the tools they need to do their jobs

For an insurance company, the benefits are barely acceptable

Advice to Management

Please review the "Peter Principle" and stop putting people into roles that they are not suited for

Listen to the staff when they have complaints

    Pros

    Decent vacation time to start, lots of different paths to choose from (individual life, group benefits and wealth management, to name a few)

    Cons

    There is a lot of turnover. I don't know who has posted such glowing reviews, they certainly aren't from my area. People with the least amount of experience are promoted over people with the most knowledge, and there is a lot of work being moved overseas, so for the majority of employees, this is not a company to retire with, as your job is more likely than not going to be outsourced at some point. Our shares tanked 2 years ago, and seem to have never recovered.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the right people, stop with the friends and relatives bit. Consider experience a benefit, not a liability.
