What a toxic place…so glad I’m not there anymore. Incompetent leadership at the helm was the start of their downfall. It’s unfortunate that people’s livelihoods are affected by the mass layoffs now.

It’s time to become independent and work for yourself! Earn your worth in the insurance field. So many limitations to with being a captive insurance agent. Money and job security are examples of this!

Oh wow how come they did that?

Oh wow that’s crazy

Very sorry to hear that. None that I’m aware of but it’s indicative of the broader market/economic outlook.

With the current trend of increases in interest rates there’s no cheap money anymore, the market is hardening and many companies are probably examining what they need to do to come out of this recession stronger.

I saw them coming from a mile away. For now I was not one of them but I have been sprucing up my resume to look for greener pastures.
