Pros

Stable company that cares about employees. Less backstabbing than in many other large companies.

Difficult to get a promotion; many managers care mostly about themselves and managing up. Not a meritocracy.

Advice to Management

Reward managers based on how they manage talent and based on job satisfaction of their employees. Provide 360 evaluations to managers.

    Pros

    Best life insurance company in the US.

    Cons

    Commissioned based pay can cause some talented people to leave because of a slow month or quarter

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more hands on in the General Offices. Management at the local level seems to tell home office whatever they think they want to hear.

    Cons

    Must be a self starter! Alot of people think that commission only sales is a scary place to be but in this economic enviroment so is being emloyed by a "salary" company - IndyMac, Countrywide, Lehman, Bear Stearns, etc... You call that safety and security in your paycheck?

    Advice to Management

    Continue to follow the long term strategy! It is working.
