      Pros

      My direct boss (all 3!) we’re incredibly warm and nice and caring.

      Cons

      The men in this workplace get treated far better than women. I had men send me nasty and rude emails and I feel as if nothing generally happened, even after going to HR. I voiced my concerns many times and not much was done.

      Pros

      Leadership says they care. They are out of touch.

      Cons

      Out of touch with the other insurance companies. Have not changed from the old ways. They talk about change, just can't understand what it takes.

      Pros

      The pros are the great training you receive along with great benefits. They also provide hands on training that’s helps you become a better financial rep
