It can be a decent place to work but it depends a lot on your department and manager, since there isn't much consistency among management. The profit sharing is a good benefit, but the problem is most salaries fall below industry standard.
Unfortunately this company still has a lot of extremely old school mentalities, in a bad way. Nepotism is rampant and I saw and experienced some of the worst management methods here, including micro management. Executives' kids and family members get opportunities other employees do not, such as being placed directly into management roles or automatic yearly promotions. They have many diversity issues and in at least one department the women and men are segregated into different work areas. They have no flex time and depending on your department long hours are expected. The amount of middle management has increased due to their growth in the past few years. They have outgrown their facilities and the parking lot is a nightmare. Benefits are 'ok' but salaries are sub-par. There are better places to work, and many of us have fortunately found that out.11USLI Response7y

USLI isn’t a bad company to get your start. It has excellent medical benefits, profit sharing, no dress code, pays for insurance designations, and strives to be a caring company culture. Gym and sports available on campus if you like to participate. Hiring process is long but it weeds out the bad seeds.
I left because of the pay and their refusal to adopt a work from home structure. Unless you have been there forever, you won’t make anything (underwriting, marketing, admin). To get a raise, you are told to pass a ton of designations and obtain made up USLI degrees, yet others are promoted or receive higher pay without. Favoritism and nepotism are present, and there’s no HR to report to. Work from home will not be an option for most, unless you move more than 2 hours away. The CEO is looking to have everyone back in the office minus one day , regardless of the turnover. If you don’t drink the kool aid, you won’t move up. USLI is stuck in their ways and won’t change. The best part of the company was the people, but everyone has been leaving.11
