    Commissioner Sullivan should consider replacing senior management in the Consumer Protection section. The section has not advanced or improved in nearly 10 years.

    I worked at Texas Department of Insurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Diversity, career advancement, and pay

    Cons

    Brought in specifically to address problems that been brewing for years. My strong management style led to my demise. Inept leadership could felt threatened by my capabilities. Instead of correcting the ship they decided to keep standards low and return to business as usual.

    Advice to Management

    If the problem has been there for years, and newly hired leadership is being blamed, maybe look at the old leadership.
