    Open floor plan makes it difficult to conduct business/meetings on the telephone due to too much noise in surrounding area. Huddle/conference rooms were usually taken.

    Pros

    The time off and holidays are great, benefits are ok not great considering its an insurance company

    Cons

    They hire people for a specific job function and give them an unrelated title and then won't promote them because they aren't doing the work for that title. They have horrible leaders that got promoted because they were frinds with the VP and not based on their skills.

    Pros

    great hours no weekends holiday pay overtime is available sometimes. pay starts you off pretty well also

    Cons

    a lot of work is required to fulfill this job. we a pay a lot for our insurance plans surprisingly enough. consistently the job and requirements of day to day activities are changing. being on the phones for 8 hours a day is not fun. we deserve more money for everything we do and the union we are in is a joke they do nothing but collect our money. really need a degree to be able to advance in this company

    Advice to Management

    better pay, more help on the floor pay less for insurance actually care about your employees instead of viewing us as pawns
