    Individual Sales Rep, Medicare NJ

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat Management team, base salary and benefits, flexible life balance during the slow season

    ConsMore ideal year round for a bilingual candidate which I am not. My territory was moved due to where I reside, not due to my success in the area I was working. The company does not generate leads for inhouse reps anymore. The most successful reps get leads from other companies or buy leads lists

    Nice place to work, pay is average but good working environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Honolulu, HI (US)

    ProsNo state holidays but generous paid time off allowances. Management are nice though a little disorganized. Work is challenging but they do consider work life balance. They truly care for their members and are not greedy.

    ConsHealth benefits are supposedly not good but I think they're okay. People are not held accountable for actions making progress slow. Pay raises are infrequent and low. Work gets piled on capable employees. Burn-out seems common.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more staff, especially efficient ones. Make people accountable to promote efficiency. Assess and divvy employee work loads to prevent burn-outs and frequent employee turn-overs.

    Great company for work-life balance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC (US)

    ProsI enjoy being able to work from home from time to time. If you consistently go beyond the scope of duty, there are opportunities for small bonuses. Management is clear about their expectations and also understanding of life outside of work.

    ConsThere have been several reorganizations and layoffs during the past couple of years. As with any large corporation, there can sometimes be too many hoops to jump through in order to get things accomplished.
