    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive 401K, nice people, on-site fitness center with classes, tunnels that connect main campus buildings, Treat America vendor serves Starbucks coffee, decent cafeteria.

    Cons

    Outdated technology, senior leadership moving back towards command & control, lack of mentor program for front-line supervisors and managers (they only want to focus on director & above), too many layers of approval for small items.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your leaders! Stop the multi-level layers of approval and just get things done. Pay your contact center & claims frontline staff better and develop a solid mentor program in order to retain employees. Provide learning specialists opportunities for development.
