Suggestions for improvement

  • I would change it from a "call center" feeling to a more comfortable, typical office feeling to allow a better work environment since employees are always on the phone.

What I like about the company

I have received many feedbacks on the work I do and they have been varied but always insightful and always to help do better and promote growth rather than to bring down and diminish the job being done.

What I dislike about the company

It is a very stressful job and can get overwhelming. It unfortunately cannot be turned off for a day to allow time to catch up.

Company Culture

Promotions are given based on personal relationships rather than quality of work and productivity.

Support from management

Realistic targets not set by supervisors or company

Teamwork

Work well within teams but not collectively as a unit as one company

Freedom to work independently

Work and duties constantly piled onto workers without time to properly complete tasks.No real consideration of ideas presented by employees productivity.

Gender Equality

Promotion based on "who you know" aspect and those same individuals are given preferential treatment.

Attitude towards older colleagues

During my time with the comany I observed several employees with over 15 years experience leave the company with little to no resistance by management. Seniority only comes into consideration when considering vacation time.

Career Development

Little to no opportunity for advancement. Managers leave and take many months to replace.

Overall compensation for your work

Salary is not competitive. Responsibilities exceed the salaries provided. Initial salaries offered to new hires are not equal and unfairly distributed.

Office / Work Environment

Office is often too cold and a distraction from work during winter; building is old and A/C went out often during summer in one part of the building.

Work-Life Balance

Only 4 people are allowed to be off at any given time. During certain times of year no workers are allowed to take off. Family life is not considered. You are expected to perform the duties of up to 4 different departments but only paid for 1.

Company Image

This company is a non-standard insurance company and is known for poor customer service by other insurance companies and customers.

Challenging Work

Accomplishments either go unnoticed or are not made a priority.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better training programs, higher dedication to customer service, more competitive salary, more advancement opportunities a stronger focus on relations within the company for employees and management.

What I like about the company

They are willing to give those new to the insurance field an opportunity to develop their skills.

What I dislike about the company

They have no sense of work life balance and do not offer competitive salaries for their employees.
