    Pros

    Salary ...longevity of company. New York like corporate has a good reputation in t he industry. Tampa office experiencing change in response to sub par leadership. Bad mortality on block of life business will kill chances of long term success . Poor senior leadership.

    Cons

    Poor senior leadership. Top down oriented. Lack of care for employees. Sweat shop in production areas such as back office and call center. Job seekers Beware..

    Advice to Management

    Turn yourself over. Step aside allowing competent leadership to step in.
