"Worked for Country for 15 years. Peers and co-workers were excellent. Upper management (director and above, company wide) mediocre at best. Decent pay. Good benefits. Health Insurance premiums high."

"A company with serious financial concerns and managerial malpractice. IT management bullies and intimidates it's staff, providing no clear direction. Has resorted to massive staff cuts in an effort to reduce expenses by tens of millions. A longtime customer and employee disillusioned on both counts. If you value your health, avoid at all costs."

"If I was content with my position and didn't wish to advance, then it's perfect."

What do you like about working at Country Financial?

"Great pension. Honestly, that was about it. Very little else was worthwhile."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Plenty of other insurance companies out there who are worth your time."

What don't you like about working at Country Financial?

"It is completely a good ol boys club there. You can advance easily if you are buddies with the in group.. Talent is secondary. I've seen some major league schlumps get promotions that leave a lot of people shaking their head. It's a small company, who believes they are massive. Micro managing is their specialty. They have closed a regional office, and have downsized several people. Not a very good company IMO. The united way fundraisers are a great way to get in good with management...since they force donating down your throats, and make notice who gives and who doesn't."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Clean house. Get rid of the middle to upper management levels that are simply collecting a paycheck. Give your employees a say."

"no accountability; bait and switch by management; I could go on and on and on."

What do you like about working at Country Financial?

"not much to like about working for this company. I was highly qualified, and the new agent school was ridiculous."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Don't work for this company. They will require you to gather a list of 100 friends and relatives who you can telemarket at your CAL school. Most agents will not make it past year one, so in this way COUNTRY is hiring many new agents guaranteeing new clients."

What don't you like about working at Country Financial?

"Agency manager was not held accountable for statements made that led to me accepting the position. Life insurance units don't mean much - it is the whole life insurance that you will have to sell and there is a lot of pressure to convert your term life insurance clients to whole life. Based upon the client's needs, of course.....Also, up to a 33% reduction in monthly base pay if you do not meet benchmarks. Also stick you with a 2 year agreement for a wireless aircard. Up to 33% reduction in base pay for not meeting benchmarks"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Follow up with ethical concerns of employees. Get real about differences in market locations regarding benchmarks and production standards."

"Got a friend in high places You'll go far here, no matter how incompetent you are."

What do you like about working at Country Financial?

"Great fellow employees, but that really could be found anywhere. Honestly, this company is hard to work for. I don't agree ethically with how they run business."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Just don't. Go anywhere else. It's a job, yes, but it will frustrate you, and you will not get the proper accolades here."

What don't you like about working at Country Financial?

"If you are in upper management, this would be the best company in the world to work for...you could do whatever you want and not have to worry about consequences. Want to sexual harass someone here Just be upper management, and you'll be rewarded with a promotion, and everything is swept under the rug."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Start over. Promoting your good buddies over more qualified individuals is poor business. It's pathetic."
