Great compensation, terrible management.
Underwriter (Former Employee) – Arlington, TX – January 14, 2019
This is a great place to learn and the compensation/benefits are competitive. The problem is management.
Two of the Directors have been there 25+ years and they are also team leaders. They openly discuss their subordinates with other employees, making disparaging remarks and belittling others, behind their backs. Because the Directors have been there so long, they have many top producing agents referring business to them. They have so many agents sending them business that they don't get to all of the submissions, but won't share them with other underwriters because they want to continue to get those submissions to bolster their numbers. The Directors are willing to answer any questions you might have, but be warned: they will discuss you and your questions as soon as your back is turned. I was working late one evening and heard one of the Directors bad mouthing everyone on her team to one of her 23 year old team members. She even made fun of a woman's stutter. If these two weren't there, I think it would be a more positive and pleasant environment.
Professional growth is encouraged. Competitive compensation.
Management is unprofessional and mean spirited.
