    I have been working at Swingle Collins & Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. The people! Everyone at SCA eventually becomes family to you.

    2. The atmosphere - the culture is a learning mentality which means everyone is always trying to improve and become better.

    3. The culture - everyone helps each other out and always willing to lend a helping hand to one another. All successes are celebrated as a team.

    4. The staff - probably the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Growing pains - the agency is growing so the pains associated with a company that is expanding is definitely felt. However, management does a great job of communicating and leveling everyone out on future plans.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Swingle Collins & Associates full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    * Company culture has dramatically improved over the last 7-months as a result of the implementation of systems that ensure the mission to make employees first.
    * Truly an incredible management team that is committed to serving customers, staff and carriers.
    * Unlimited opportunities for those willing to work and learn.
    * The absolute best commercial, personal, and benefits practitioners on our planet.
    * I would love to see a company that maintains a better culture than Swingle, Collins and Associates in 2019 and beyond!

    Cons

    * The rapid growth created a lack of accountability on cultural health. The suits hired a fresh, determined and very experienced culture team that showed them the light and have flipped the old ways out like Jo Jo the circus clown!

    I have been working at Swingle Collins & Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong management team that cares about its people. Great perpetuation plan gives its young producers an aiming point/goal. Big focus on education. Fun, young culture/atmosphere. No limitations on sales opportunities. Strong carrier relationships help get the job done, whether it is closing the deal or closing the claim. Unbelievable earning potential. Benefits are unbeatable. Flexible schedule. Newly renovated office. Soda dispenser in the kitchen.

    Cons

    Would love to add a claims manager or loss control rep to the team

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide the resources and mentorship to the young producers. We have to be able to provide enough guidance in order to properly grow.

    Pros

    The culture, environment, and mission of the company all line up to make this agency a really great place to be a part of. Everyone from top to bottom has their doors open for any help, and the team focus really is noticeable. Leadership here wants to equip you to learn and succeed at a rate and path that fits you. The lack of micromanaging and open opportunities you have to plug in and grow make working here exciting everyday. No matter your background, the team here seems to do really with new hires as well as appreciating their tenured employees too. It's a fun and lively environment that contains a mutual respect among everyone to help each other out and do their best to make sure we are the best we can be. Overall I really find myself lucky to have landed here as a career and can't wait for the future.

    Cons

    None, maybe too much great food brought in?

    Advice to Management

    The future seems really bright here, keep up the great work and just know everyone appreciates your dedication.

    Pros

    Lots of office events to try and build comradery. Some nice people. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Nobody is treated equal. Their long term employees can do no wrong. Lots of turnover. Management is lacking. More like a sweat shop. No culture and definitely lacking in values.

    Advice to Management
