Pros

The people (your peers) are better than most other jobs. The workforce is young and active, and high turnover keeps bringing new faces.

Cons

New policies have been mostly focused on taking away employee benefits. Giving no raises due to "economy" despite reporting profits for the year. Paying salaries that are below the industry standard.

Advice to Management

Your employees are a valuable asset. Actually treat them that way, don't just say the words or go through the motions.

    Pros

    Lots of talented people. Lots of different things going on. Barriers between business units eroding which is leading to better collaboration. Management moves forward with hard decisions.

    Cons

    Takes a while to root out bad managers - but they do it. Younger people get a bit stuck if they are in a department that depends on lots of renewal business. Kind of cookie cutter and they get bored and leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, I liked it there. The negative things influencing my departure were fixed about a year after I left.

    Pros

    Great potential to make an amazing amount of money as a producer. Producer compensation schedule is fair. Good global network to lean on for larger clients. Corporate gives you industry leading tools to be successful. Good employee benefits, minus 401K (weak match).

    Cons

    One of the most toxic and unethical work environment's of any industry that I have seen. Management allows producers to be very unethical/ immoral and even partakes in the unethical/immoral behavior. There is definitely a corrupt, "good ole' boy" network that exists. Certain producers are handed clients because they are "pals" with management. People are always thought of last, profits and revenue are all anyone cares about. Producer's are told to do "whatever it takes" to close new business...even using unethical means to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the future and next generation of insurance professionals. The workforce is aging and you are seeing a huge generational gap between employees. You tout the "Willis Cause" yet local offices are allowed to operate as some of the most immoral and unethical people in the insurance industry. You may be seeing producers hit their numbers consistently but the lack of professionalism and the unethical behavior will inevitably lead to your demise. If management really cared about anything other than revenue this would not be tolerated.
