    I have been working at Shelter Insurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training and a very supportive management team. Its a large company but still feels like everyone knows your name - even company leadership. Company encourages community involvement. One of the main company values is "Do the Right Thing" and every decision seems to run through that filter - both how they treat employees and agents and how customers are served.

    Cons

    Sales isn't for everyone so no one should expect it to be easy.

    Pros

    Very Family Oriented Company.

    Cons

    Pilot Company had some technical difficulties that we were responsible for- not apart of the job description. Most people were playing on their phone, completing personal work, or close to sleeping because there was so much down time.

    Advice to Management

    Be on One accord with updates

    Pros

    There are no good reasons to pursue a career here. this is where you go for a wake up call as you realize you've hit rock bottom

    Cons

    Spend most of your pay buying policies on yourself and your family cause nobody outside of Missouri has heard of this red neck company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a calendar so you can figure out its the 21st century. Everyone has a website, they're not unique anymore.

    I worked at Shelter Insurance full-time

    Pros

    Clearly the benefits. 401k is strong plus retirement plan. If you can carve out your niche and stick it out, there is a reward for longevity.

    Cons

    Senior management is weak and narrow minded. Pay is below what is available in comparable markets. They expect you to take a "home town" discount.
