    Pros

    Intern program is across the whole company. Great opportunity to meet seniors leaders and show how you work as a team in the group project.

    Cons

    Most interns are in different departments, which makes it hard to equalize what every intern learns. Vacation time is really up to your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Bring on more out of state interns to Birmingham. Improve the group project with more direction and more employee interaction.

    I have been working at Protective Life full-time

    Pros

    It is a team atmosphere within the IT Department. The IT Leadership is engaged with workers and does a good job sharing the company goals and priorities. There is a good investment in technology. They are willing to do things the right way. The Senior Leadership is transparent with the leaders of the company.

    Cons

    Can be a fast paced environment with shifting priorities. Although there is good investment in technology there are some departments that are expected to run lean.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent with your leaders and encourage feedback from the employees through the employee feedback program.
