MARKETING PROJECT MANAGER (Current Employee) – Bloomington, IL – September 13, 2018
On the surface the company wants to be modern and competitive, for customer acquisition and talent recruitment. Unfortunately, it is by nature risk averse, ultra conservative, and mired in clunky processes and antiquated systems preventing it from keeping pace or even catching up to the speed of 21st century business.
They are very financially sound. Mostly conservative IL farmers on the board of directors. They have had some terrible claims especially in the southern states, but they have remained one of the leading companies for customer satisfaction.
Their management system is outdated with new recruiting having approximately 97% attrition in first 5 years? A huge drain on the overall financial success of the company.
Their national marketing benefit the Country label but not the agents. Commissions are lower than normal due to the heavy expenses attributed to the high attrition rate.
Agents are not given the respect they deserve by mid-management.
If you're looking for a Sales position, Country Financial is for you.

Insurance Agent/Financial Advisor (Current Employee) – Montgomery, AL – July 28, 2018
There was pretty good training though it could have focused on different areas. The work/life balance was great as you do not have a set schedule. You do get a set salary here which is great in the insurance industry however, the commission payout is considerably low compared to other companies. You are expected to meet quarterly goals and if you do not meet them consistently then you will be fired so the stability may be a factor here. However, if you work hard then its a great place to start your career.

Country Financial is a good company to work for. My boss was an awesome manager and took good care of us. I however just did not enjoy selling insurance. This is nothing to do with the company as they were good.

Key aspects moving targets. Constantly re-structuring, inability to cure small but important key technical and front-line issues. Enjoyed work-space environment, colleagues: mostly a friendly environment.
flexible schedule, motivational
sales goals, lack of brand exposure, short term evaluations
