    Autonomy to actually do your job. Great managers that understand your challenges and empower you to grow. Great work environment. Excellent flexibility.

    Cons

    Internal communication needs significant improvements. No follow-up on appraisal reviews. Information is extremely slow to reach field employees; vital information.

    Advice to Management

    Be more active with Field agents and take advantage of opportunities to meet with them when you are in the field. Do not go to their home town for a conference and not call them.
