High turnover at this place. Segregation is strong amongst ALL departments. Management has preferential treatment. Wages not very competitive. Positions available to "grow within the company" is limited. Slow changes with policies, job tasks and systems. Management offers flexible days off but doesn't offer remote work to everybody - only if you're an executive.
very well organized, excellent benefits, clients are really great to deal with as they seem to be knowledgeable BFL is on a modern system so it leaves less room for E&O's flexible hours
This was a temp/student position, I enjoyed it while I was there. I got to learn about insurance and general office life, I hope to learn more about the environment in an office and along with that office skills. I thought everyone was very nice there for sure recommend.

BFL was my first job after finishing my undergrad. I was working in the Communications and Compliance department. The president of this department was a bit intimidating, but very fair. If you did your work well, she was happy, and always willing to help when help was needed. Overall, BFL is a great place to work.
Nice office space, gift cards at Christmas, occasional paid lunch
Our regional manager did not know how to do their job so would defer responsibilities onto other staff. It made for a toxic work environment. When it came to company reviews, all that mattered was that our manager got a good review.
A typical day at work was very fast paced. My colleagues help made my job easier by being supportive and helpful. I have learned the importance of being attentive to details and in maintaining rapport with our clients on a daily basis. Our department manager was kind and supportive to their employees which created a positive work environment where I was happy to come to work each and every day.
Commuting in rush hour downtown
The environment was extremely toxic both in staff and management. The excess of alcohol offered during working hours is not acceptable. This was the hardest part of the job. What I enjoyed most was the work in general and interaction with clients to ensure their needs were met. I learned from this job that I require a well managed and organized company where staff take pride in the job they do and respect is supported by all. I was laid off to due poor growth of the company and my position was eliminated. An experience I will use to my advantage and continue to bring positive growth in my future career path.
