    I worked at Towergate Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Your team around you share and support you. Location is good to get to. Training is good and tries to develop you. There are some really good people here.

    Cons

    Stressed out people who try and guard themselves against management and their crazy demands. Team leaders when not putting stuff up there noses, checking the internet, are on phones or gossiping in corners whilst going to meetings or are scream at everyone to get on phones. They dont develop their teams skills just use them and expect them to develop themselves but feel threaten when they do. Stop demanding more and more with less people to it. Training are trying to develop skills that will never be used. The business seems as if its all about getting the max commissions not the best policies for clients. Promotions are pre planned so only mates get promoted. You dont need to be good at insurance just sucking up. In fact to be a team leader no technical knowledge is needed.
