Lafayette Life Case Consultant (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHSeptember 15, 2015
The systems used do not interface with each other and are very old pre 2000. Very hard to serve your customer in a timely manor when you have to use so many systems. Management is not willing to communicate with you regarding your needs to preform the job. Very few tools to preform the job correctly.
Pros
salary
Cons
poor systems no support from management

Financial and Insurance Representative (Former Employee) –  Saginaw, MIAugust 30, 2015
Flexible and profitable for experienced sales people.
High turnover rate in midlevel management. This was frustrating as a person trying to learn the business. Often felt I knew more about the products than the managers.

Great Company
SENIOR REGISTERED REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHAugust 2, 2015
Great company to work for that has been around over 127 years. Typical day of work would be make telephone calls to client to assist with a review of their coverage, assist them with to find an a common goal to get them from their current situations to their desired situations. Also look into details of assisting them with their retirement options as well. Being a senior sales representative, I've taken on additional roles to assist the Assistant Managers (on the job coaching and assisting, Call monitors, and feedback). I love to help people out, being our customers or our employees, I want to make sure everyone is taken care of, and learning what I can do next to better myself and the company. The hardest part of my job would be that the calls are made on a outbound call system, so it can be a challenge to reach our clients at the perfect time to talk with them.
Pros
Free Lunches, Subsidized parking, Constant Coaching
Cons
Limited mobility (must be in current role for 2 years before you can move)

not for sales people
Sales (Former Employee) –  USAJune 4, 2015
W+S can be a good job if you are in a salaried / back office job, but if you are in sales, the management at all levels will never value you. You will be provided with mostly substandard product and expected to "just go out and sell it". This is a company that is proud of "keeping costs low" instead of growing sales. And keeping costs lows means giving you little support to do your job and resentment by upper management if you "make too much". They view their sales forces as commodities that are easily replaceable. Only take a sales position if you have to have a job, and keep looking for something else.
Pros
ok if not a sales position
Cons
no respect from upper management
