    Pros

    Everyone at the office is so friendly. It feels like one big family. Even though it is very busy, there's a great element of fun that is in every day. Also, everybody is so welcoming and willing to help when you start. The program is great! Even senior management takes the time to meet with everyone-- not very often this happens. I have felt included in everything and have gotten to meet and work with so many different people and on different projects! Everyone has gone above the call of duty to help me learn and feel welcome!

    Cons

    None! No better place to work!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!!!

    I have been working at Winged Keel Group full-time

    Pros

    Business prospects look good going forward. Good comp & benefits.

    Cons

    Poor management throughout the entire firm. Poor career opportunities and management doesn't seem to care. Company culture is awful and is about shifting blame so you stay out of line of fire from above.

    Advice to Management

    Company morale is at all time lows. Get things fixed before the house of cards falls apart.

    I worked at Winged Keel Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Growing company offers the ability to grow in other areas if interested. Diverse work-force. Beautiful and convenient office space. Corporate outings

    Cons

    Too many layers of review create bottlenecks. Doesn't promote healthy work / life balance. Sometimes workers will feel like they are not appreciated and are just work horses.

    Advice to Management

    Remember your team wants you to succeed, encouragement goes farther than criticism.

    Pros

    The company culture is great. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. The CRMs are all well-qualified and knowledgeable about the happenings in the life insurance industry.

    Cons

    It is a smaller company, so there are less exit opportunities after working there. Also, the workload can add up during busy months.

    I have been working at Winged Keel Group full-time

    Pros

    The staff enjoys working together and are courteous to each other. It's not a competitive environment. The people are generally willing to answer questions and help each other.

    Cons

    They talk about work-life balance but then expect you to work long hours. There's constant changing of roles without warning.
