    Pros

    Great place to work and excellent benefits. For a large company it is very entrepreneurial. They value process improvements and most roles will have you home by 6:30.

    Cons

    Like any large, American insurance company, changes are slow. That same entrepreneurial attitude can hinder internal communications between departments

    Advice to Management

    Based on stock performance over the last three years, keep doing what you are doing.

  2. Great place to work and build a career, especially for actuaries

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are good. The people there are great and high energy. Ideas take off at this very progressive company.

    Cons

    Things get done, but it can be a painfully slow process.

    Advice to Management

    You're hiding some of your best talent in the strangest places. Don't be so high in the clouds you can't see who is keeping you on top.

    Pros

    I like my position that I hold with in the company. There are a lot of opportunities for advancement or even relocating. The work environment is positive and I love my coworkers. The training here was very good considering some of the other companies I have worked for. Benefits are also amazing! The pay is very competitive as well.

    Cons

    Trying to get time off the day before or after a holiday is near impossible. Even is you request it months in advance it doesn't matter because by policy they will draw names. In my department we have almost 30 people and only 2 people are allowed off on a given day. Other companies I have worked for are much more lenient with this issue.

    Advice to Management

    Work with people on getting time off around the holidays.

    Completely invested in the employee. Training is top notch.

    Create a way for Benefit Counselors to work more hours and get more recognition for the work they do.
