The work life balance was the biggest benefit
IT Analyst Manager (Former Employee) –  Chesterfield, MOJune 20, 2018
The work life balance was the biggest benefit. Company is going through many changes and restructuring and eliminating positions. Unfortunately it is requiring employees to work many hours of overtime as the standard.

Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) –  Elgin, ILJune 9, 2018
Great pay, good job. Large corporation so typical corporate management policies. Treat employees fairly. I did not feel there was any special treatment or favoritism. Job performance is the factor used in determining raises and promotions.
Pros
Stable, good pay
Cons
Large corporation environment

Overall a great company with excellent co-workers
AVP Data Engineer (Current Employee) –  Birmingham, ALJune 3, 2018
Protective is a great company with plenty of opportunity to make a real impact on the business. Experiences vary among different departments as many people have been doing the same job for 10 to 20 years, while others are on teams that have only been around for a couple of years. The benefits at Protective are excellent and they truly live their corporate mission to have a positive impact on their community.
Pros
Opportunity to impact change. Benefits. Volunteer opportunities
Cons
Can be slow moving and somewhat bureaucratic.

Not a good place to work
Compensation Analyst (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALJanuary 19, 2018
I saw, more times than I care to mention, management trying find ways to fire people. the lengths this company goes to, to find reasons to fire you if you do not play along and say the company is great. Not only that, in the time I worked there (18 years), I saw it go from a family-friendly culture to one where the employees were just a number and management did not really care about their employees. It was about the almighty dollar. I would not work here again if I was given a 6-figure salary. Awful awful place.
