Poor management is in the process of being replaced.
Belair is a good starting point for the insurance industry, but the salary is $10K less than competitors. Management is being replaced, so perhaps the work environment will improve.

Micromanaging
Your job is to sell as a sales agent, however if you are above average sales and one out of your 20 metrics slip the management gets very micromanagy.

Great place to start out, very little room to grow
I've really enjoyed my time with belairdirect. I think it is a great place to start out your career in the insurance business. You are treated pretty well and the culture within the company is fairly positive. Most people are friendly and courteous and the overall office dynamic is quite good.
The tough thing about working there is that the company has a difficult time keeping their staff, this puts a lot of pressure on the staff that remains and can cause morale issues at times.

Lastly, there isn't a lot of room for growth. You are an agent on the phone and really the only advancement options are management or move to another company or city. It is what it is, but it's why I say it's a great place to start out and grow.

Great but enhanced work life balance is needed
Great place to work..
amazing colleagues..

Too much repetitive work

There should be a kind of job rotation to ensure there is no burnouts and to keep the team motivated

I am surprised with the lack of professionalism
You're in the call centre counting down the minutes. It feels like a very long day.

Depending on who your manager is, you may love or hate your job. I expected professionals, but the walls are thin, and gossip spreads all around the centre. There are a lot of young workers, who have group chats about things that don't pertain to work, but you are forced to stay in the group chats.
Pros
Free Food
Cons
Long Hours

Great place to work
Great place to work, and management cares about the employees. Salary's are fair and work life balance is something they always strive for. Extensive training and retention

It’s basically an insurance call center.
Not the best place to work, no plan and forethought from management. They give way too many projects for you to complete that would require another full time position, and also ask you to meet production expectations for your current role. So basically your already being under paid not only to do your job, but another full time job. The staff are bully’s and get away with it since much of management work remotely. There is no job security there, and they have no problem in letting someone go with out cause.

Stay far far away.
Absolutely abhorrent hypocrisy regarding their "support" of work/life balance. You will rarely get the time off you request when its "speculative to be busy" that day, and if you work the 12-9 shift forget it.
They will question you for taking sick time (even if you have sick notes & there's a flu going around the office) and chalk it off as an absenteeism problem. No, it's an environment problem.

Check your mental health at the door, this place only see's success from those that are sheep and accept leadership that has a totalitarian mentality (aka you have to accept what I say because I'm the boss and I can't be wrong). On top of that a lot of people who get promoted to Team Leader position should absolutely never in their life lead a team because they lack the characteristics in order to be a leader and a manager. There were some (ie like 2 tops) team leaders who excelled in their positions and fought to keep their team happy and saw the benefit of what its like to have a happy team....first basic rule of management happy employee = success...this concept seems foreign and lost on this place.

Save yourselves the time and mental degradation of working in this toxic environment and pick another insurance company to work for. I left for a better salary and environment elsewhere and couldn't be happier.

They need to pay more and fix their management problem
Work-life balance was the decent thing at the office.

They could certainly pay more. A licensed insurance agent getting paid little over 1,200$ bi-weekly is almost unacceptable. Management employs obvious favoritism in the way they conduct business with employees.

Stepping stone
I have nothing bad to say about this company. Lots of opportunities to succeed----for the right person. If you're young and single you'll thrive, if you're an adult with extra responsibilities outside of work, you might find the job itself juvenile. Office politics, favoritism and a "promote the people I'm friends with" business attitude prevents the company from really excelling.

You are who you know here. But they do train you and provide you with an insurance license for free. If you're interested in entering the insurance industry, and you don't want to be tied down to a job long term this will be perfect for you.
Pros
Free coffee, good benefit package.
Cons
Your job is secure if you're well liked.

Worst place to work
Just one thing if you’re beautiful and brainwashed this place his made for you. Non professionnel place to work, boss trying to be friends when they’re supposed to be your boss, but I can really explain the reality of this place but you would say I’m overreacting but you need to go there and seeing by yourself if you want...
Cons
No break, delusional people, non professional, psychology manipulation, people go get out easily

Corporate America Culture took over
It was one of the best companies to work for, it has an awesome small company vibe but then its parent company started to take more direct control and it began to feel like we were robots in an assembly line.
