    I have been working at USI Insurance Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This organization puts its money where it's mouth is in developing a full suite of resources and tools to help you be successful in your position. Extremely impressive and has been very helpful in getting me up and running.

    I've also had great support not only from my boss, and the senior leadership in our office, but also from the national practice leader for the division I'm a part of. It's very motivating to have that level of support behind you.

    Cons

    Nothing thus far that has really stuck out.

    Other offices should model CT; more flexibility

    I have been working at USI Insurance Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Unlike most insurance sales positions, USI supports their risk specialists with a healthy annual wage with a smaller stake in the commissions.

    Cons

    You do not keep your book of business and there are currently no residual commissions.

    Advice to Management

    Blending acquired operations into the company as a whole is always challenging. If your new producers are being placed in an environment not yet 'on board' spend the time to get buy in - or at least adherence to new workflow.

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

    Pros

    PTO, 401K Match, $500 ER contribution to HSA

    Cons

    The culture is superficial and money driven. They don't respect anyone who doesn't work in sales. Horrible work life balance - busy season is supposed to last 2-4 months, but it lasts about 11 months out of the year, working 50-60 hours a week. I honestly only stay for the steady paycheck...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and treat them all as equals. Perhaps your retention would be better...

    Pros

    Location-------that is it Unfortunately. Nothing else.

    Cons

    Even though offer letter notes Annual 3% increase - Well that is a lie -- you get no raise - reason behind it budget and that is true across the board in Commercial Dept. Large employee turnaround, terrible health benefits, no employee incentives - No Flex Days, flexibility for families or work from home. Your will Burn - Out here quickly.
