    Great people! Workload issues. Clearly value external over internal candidates

    Insurance Broker (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits, awesome health plan, smart, fun co-workers, many opportunities to learn subject matter very well

    ConsValue external candidates over internal candidates, everyone is overworked and stressed, you can only get the salary for your peer-group if you threaten to leave, poor performers are not fired, just starved out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop trying to 100% de-risk your business. It sends a message to clients that you aren't willing to stand by your work and puts you in a vulnerable position. Clients will start to think "Gee, if I am constantly being told I have to check my broker's work, why shouldn't an online quote service do this same thing I thought I was paying for expertise"

    Stop burning out your best people, they are the product you are selling.

    Give some actual power to give promotions, make compensation decisions, and fire people etc. to office heads, zone leaders, or even managers. Its very clear their hands are 100% tied to do right by their best people.

    Data Administrator

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Working with immedatiate team members is positive
    - Great flexibility with vacation - except for month end
    -Christmas gatherings

    Cons- Very little room for growth for employees at the lower end of the scale.
    - HUGE communication gap among colleagues.
    - Some employees tend to pawn off the work onto other colleagues and fear change and do not embrace new business processes. Senior veterans who have been with the company for ages cannot think outside the box and thus tend to like a lot of hand holding.

    Advice to Senior Management-Give credit where credit is due. The company boasts about further learning and career development but management needs to reinforce this and look out for every employee under their wing. This should not be limited to individuals with senior roles.
    -Improve communication within deparments and make sure the message conveyed is uniform.
    -Consider revising the compensation matrix for all departments. Upper management tend to get bigger pay increases and bonuses, while the reamining employees get a 1% raise. In today's economy, the base salary for junior roles are well under the poverty line which is unfair. Take home pay amounts to nothing.
    - Look past the politics and power trip. Employees need to get the work done right to make the environment a good workplace for everyone.

    Great company to work for!

    Local Technology Coordinator (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking in IT is never boring- competitive pay, job security, and daily challenges to keep work interesting.

    ConsYou work with people who have just become used to their daily routines, can be extremely condescending to support staff, and are already somewhat jaded with their expectations (even though they also refuse to follow processes). Being client facing tends to be a "punching bag" role that quickly gets old. People tend to become "buddy-buddy" to skip procedure yet tend to not know your name.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you do.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
