Pros

Good organization for someone coming out of college to get corporate experience. Depending on the department, an individual is exposed to many levels of professionals throughout the insurance industry. It's a small company, everyone is highly visible to all management.

Cons

Training programs are inconsistent and often cut short due to recruiting needs. The pay scale seems low compared to competitors and once individuals gain experience, another company benefits from their experience by paying more. Also, there is no 401k match.

    I have been working at The Jacobson Group full-time

    Pros

    Company provides great experience and learning opportunities, especially for new grads and young professionals. When I started at the company, I didn't have much experience. Over the years, I have been mentored and given room for growth and added responsibilities. In this culture, you will be asked to take on more responsibility; but as you prove yourself, recognition, promotions and raises will follow. I advise young professionals to be realistic about their expectations: You won't get a huge raise/promotion 6 months into your tenure; you have to earn it, but it will come. This is a relatively small company, so there is easy access to senior management and no one is "just a number".

    Cons

    No 401(k) match.
