Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

They have a very extensive and well-managed internship program for college students with amazing benefits, higher than average pay and a lot of responsibility. Everyone treats you as if you are a part of the company (not a lowly intern), the projects are fulfilling and you get the chance to network with some high-level executives. I would recommend this to everyone! Interview process is long and difficult, but well worth it. This company has great integrity.

Cons

Entry-level work is fairly limited to Claim's Representative or Underwriter. They have a policy of starting you of on this side of the company,and then you can switch to Human Resources, PR etc. This is okay, but I would like to go into a different segment. Also, they tell you that you will be required to move around a lot to be promoted within the company.

Advice to Management

More entry-level positions.

    Pros

    Stable environment to work at if you are an employee or part of the agency leadership team. Paycheck for training period.

    Cons

    The opportunity was misleading at best and the Senior Leadership team fired 1/2 of the new agents after 1 year. Like a good ....

    Advice to Management

    Look at the competition and ask yourself how did being number 1 impede the company from gaining market share? GEICO and Progressive won't be number 2 & 3 for long.
