    Pros

    Everyone is great to work with, very nice and helpful in all aspects. Incredibly welcoming. They have a cafeteria with cheap, delicious food. There are a plethora of benefits with working here. Fun events like bringing in a local band to play in Shelter Gardens with the humane society bringing in puppies to play with.

    Cons

    Nothing much I can really think of. I'd be more comfortable not doing business casual 4 days a week.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at Shelter Insurance full-time

    Pros

    - Start with a Book of Business. The company sets you up to succeed by providing training, a subsidy, and in most cases you take over a client base.
    - You are able to make decisions as you'd like to grow your business. You are the agency owner.
    - Company of Integrity

    Cons

    - File as a 1099
    - It can be a pro, but you do everything, from marketing to selling and servicing.

    I have been working at Shelter Insurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training and a very supportive management team. Its a large company but still feels like everyone knows your name - even company leadership. Company encourages community involvement. One of the main company values is "Do the Right Thing" and every decision seems to run through that filter - both how they treat employees and agents and how customers are served.

    Cons

    Sales isn't for everyone so no one should expect it to be easy.
