It's not what you know, it's who you know.
Special Claims Representative (Current Employee) –  Springfield, MOAugust 14, 2018
Definitely not the kind of place that promotes based on performance. If you've been there long enough and kissed the right butt, you will promote just fine. If you work hard and go beyond expectations but do not suck up to the right people, you will be stuck. The company management lacks integrity and purposely misleads employees regarding its financial status to pressure employees into working harder for longer periods of time to avoid properly staffing the claims department. Pay & benefits are on the bottom end of the curve competition curve.
Pros
Most coworkers/peers are nice.
Cons
Management, pay, promotional opporunities for solid employees

Multiple Line Agent (Former Employee) –  Dover, PAAugust 8, 2018
The manager was not helpful in helping you learn the products. He was more interested in letting us know how much he knows and how successful he was selling insurance.

freedom to sale as many policies as you can and earn as much money as you are able to.you got to interact with different people .but the hardest part of the job is the leads they provide are not good quality leads and you can hardly sale any body on the list of leads they provide .

Customer Service Representative/ Call Center (Current Employee) –  Galveston, TXJune 25, 2018
American National Insurance Company is a company where nepotism is alive and well. Many of the managers are friends or related, and management typically promotes within, from other management related positions. The benefits are terrible and very costly for hourly employees while upper management receives free benefits for their entire family. The pay is not competitive either with raises usually consisting of .20 to .30 cents.
Pros
Cafeteria on site, only working 37.5 hrs per week.
Cons
Salary, benefits, pay.

Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  League City, TXMay 6, 2018
Much the same how American National Insurance Company got their start in bed with the mob, is the gangster sales mentality ingrained in its corporate culture today. Definitely a company that stays true to its legacy.

American National
Senior Tax Manager (Former Employee) –  Galveston, TXMarch 20, 2018
American National was a very challenging place to work. It is a closely held family business. The work from day to day was very interesting. Management is changing the culture to become more collaborative instead of being told this is the way it has always been done. The 401K match has been discontinued which has caused unhappiness amongst the employees.

I believe that upper management needs to enhance benefits to keep personnel happy.
Pros
Cafeteria
Cons
Healthcare, 401K
