    Pros

    Outstanding colleagues, very team-oriented environment, tons of learning opportunities. The leadership is genuinely interested in seeing you grow in the company.

    Cons

    Not too many cons to speak of. However, you must really love the insurance industry. If you are not fully invested, you will not thrive in the community of individuals who really love the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Management values their people by listening to needs and requests and putting them into action. They promote from within.

    We work hard- very hard -and we always learn something new.

    Cons

    Technology is lacking. This creates duplication of work in terms of documentation and tracking data.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training is on the job only. This creates holes in knowledge base until a situation arises. There needs to be a more formalized/thoughtful curriculum to cover the many facets of what we do for employers.
