    "Decent Pay but uninspiring, poor treatment by managers and little recognition or reward"

    Pros

    One of the 3 large brokers - good to have 'Willis' on your resume
    Generally an 8 to 5 and/or 9 to 5 schedule
    Freedom to take larger roles (if you want to produce, go for it. No one will hold you back)
    Plenty of work to take on because the office is understaffed (it's a con as well)

    Cons

    - Management doesn't care about you unless you produce business
    - There's no incentive to learn more or to continue your education (no one cares if you're interested in improving your insurance knowledge base)
    - There is no mentor system and it's a 'sink or swim' environment.
    - The morale is terribly low and people get fired randomly on a regular basis (and it's not because they're not good employees)
    - They continue to cut benefits year after year (increase ee's insurance costs, reduce pension plan, barely give out a 2% raise to employees. One year they didn't even give me an annual employee review)
    - Most employees do not feel good about working there

    Advice to Management

    1.) Invest in your employees and try to meet them halfway in terms of becoming successful insurance professionals
    2.) Focus on developing those who may not have an extensive insurance background
    3.) Reward your service staff - Although they may not produce much new business, they are responsible for maintining revenue streams and profits, which is a big deal by the way...
    4.) Cultivate a more positive atmosphere
    5.) If you're not going to reward people with pay - at least make sure they have a flexible schedule and a good work-life balance
    6.) It has been proven in many business case studies that companies with happy employees are more profitable... think long and hard about this. Afterall, your duty is to return profits to shareholders, right?

    Pros

    The quality of colleagues, client engagements, and resources that are available is great. Opportunities are available to pursue specialized work or assignments that cover broad HR issues.

    Cons

    It can be frustrating to deal with some of the complications arising due to continued merger integration activities.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that whatever is going on around you, tackling our clients' problems and challenges always comes first.
