    Pros

    Great Company to work for and they spend the time to train new hires with their products and services. Have a great portfolio of offerings from P&C to Life. Are a top rated Insurance Company with assets to back their claims. Overall, great Company

    Cons

    Not sure these are cons, some are, some not so much: Too much gossip among Career agents. Management a little rigid but very professional. Get the job done or else. Purchase own leads that can be very expensive but overall shouldn't be an issue. As a captive agent, give a salary but some expenses paid are soaked up and was unable to take off on income taxes. Underwriting is a tough department but there to do their job. Sales and underwriting do not get along very well, feel they are a separate department instead of working together, too much friction.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the opportunity to work for a well respected insurance company. Advice: get to know your new agents better by rolling up your sleeves and go into the trenches with new hires. This will help mgmt and not make new hires feel they are on an island unable to communicate with mgmt. All-in-all, good mgmt
