    Pros

    Salary was good, flexible hours. Friendly people to work with

    Cons

    High turnover. Lots of timult in office. They don't have your back if you make a mistake. Medical benefits are extremely expensive; much higher employee cost than other firms I've worked.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people to fire them. Stop with the silly psychological testing of potential applicants; it hasn't worked. Need to look at management, or the absence thereof.

    Diversified company with significant opportunities to move around. If one is dissatisfied with one's job, one can switch to another until one finds the right fit.

    Salary is not necessarily competitive because the know they can get away with it because of their good reputation as they are a global company.

    Advice to Management

    Staff can compensated better.

    Pros

    The company is one of the few left with a pension plan if you work at least 5 years. Generally, good benefits, but copays seem higher than the case with my prior employer and some of the limits on benefits seem low. Good place, however, if you want to get out the door before 5 PM. Few seem to stay after that in the office. Many positions allow you to work remotely, at least part of the time.

    Cons

    Lack of loyalty...company has no problem sacrificing employees even if revenues have long been known to be off the mark. Company lacks good systems to track basic details of who and how much business is done with which carrier in some business units.

    Pros

    Some good people but they cant grow in the firm because of other low grade colleagues.

    Cons

    If you like politics and politics and dont want to do any work.. then please join that place.

    Advice to Management

    They need to listen to the colleagues rather than just listening to their golf buddies.
