Horace Mann is a great place to work. There's a ton of room for advancement and growth, the pay and benefits are very fair, the actuarial study program is extremely generous, and management is very competent. I like that I am given room to take on more responsibilities, but also have a manager that is approachable and willing to help when necessary. The work is fast paced because there's a lot to do, but I've never felt pressured to work 12 hour days or anything. The only downside is the city of Springfield, where there isn't a whole lot going on.
