    Pros

    Great benefit, great retirement, great coworkers, great supervisors

    Overworked, the company keeps selling policies but we’re not hiring new adjusters as fast. We can’t keep up with the ridiculous work load.

    Pros

    -great company -great clients -agent I worked for was very easy with my time off -agent was hard to work for and thought I never did anything: -i basically ran the entire office while they never came in.

    Cons

    -agent makes the decision on your pay, commission, time off. -not much room for growth in your career. -I wanted my own agency, but the agent I worked for told me that affiliate agents usually never succeed.

    Tougher job than you think

    Nov 10, 2022 - Document Services 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits. Some remote work (3 days home, 2 in office). Great facilities. Supportive management. Opportunities for growth. Challenging. Fun events. Beautiful Shelter Gardens to enjoy. Whatever you need as far as equipment, they will provide. If you want a career in insurance, it is a good jumping off point.

    Cons

    You have to work HARD for your pay. The training can be intense. They do reviews at the end of the year and mid-cycle. You also have to take endless amounts of training videos and classes. You will have goals set for you and you must meet them. They continually assign new tasks to you on top of the ones you were initially hired to do. Because the employees work 3 days at home, there is not much room to make friends. It is tedious and mind numbing and yet they want it all perfect. Big burnout rate! High turnover in the department. The company itself is HUGE, so not a lot of personal interaction with other departments. While working remote is great, having to go in for the two days is not. It would be better if they had staff that just worked remotely and then staff that worked in-house, but they are slow to take suggestions. It is a lonely, stressful job. I only gave it three stars because the insurance benefits and other benefits are great.

    Depends on your agent owner

    Pros

    Very family oriented company. Everyone cares for each other. Will do everything in their power to keep their employees during transitions. Have never seen a layoff, even through the pandemic.

    Cons

    Salary compared to other companies is low. Currently understaffed in many different areas and work is heavy with the same point of emphasis is to provide top notch service to internal and external customers. Lastly, the culture has shifted since the pandemic and allowing fun in the workplace needs to improve.
