    Pros

    Not sure there is any at this point

    Cons

    Pay, as minimum wage has increased our wages have not, work load has increased. Goals have become unobtainable, bonuses will be cut. Insurance for the most part has increased across the board. So it really doesn’t make sense I make as much as a kid that works at McDonald’s

    Advice to Management

    Push for a proper market evaluation. Insurance used to be a great career, seems now you are replaceable by the day
