The culture is white male dominated. I didn't feel like my opinion was really respected.

The sales contest rewards are predominately male oriented. The national company is making management aware of changes needed in order to recruit and retain women.

They promote women within to leadership opportunities and also provide a lot of support for women throughout the company. Very male dominant from years past, but the women across the country are incredibly talented and it is a great network to work with.

overall it's a good company but depending on your style of learning and family/work balance it may not be the right fit. Over the past 5 years the company has slowly moved into lean management (metrics vs personal). When interviewing be upfront with what you need and ask those difficult questions so you are not surprised.

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit facetime)

    The company is going through a change...more lean...personally I feel it's not a good fit for insurance but if that is what you like them I would refer

    It's a very political environment. If you can handle the politics, it may be the place for you.

There are not many females in the financial representative role. You have to be a strong, determined person to work in the career. You make your own hours/ schedule, it is commission level which is great because there is not ceiling how much you can make. Great company to work with.
