Account Executive in Overland Park:
"Being a young Account Executive."
Pros: What I love most about my job is the complexity and problem solving skills one must have to perform well. You have to be motivated & work hard to be successful in this occupation and I have everything and more to do so. You have to have enhanced communication skills and be able to please both your retail agent and your underwriter providing the insurance coverage, keeping both parties satisfied is a constant occupation and you must always do your due diligence to accomplish this task.
Cons: I often feel I am used as a scpae goat for my boss. Her son works in my office, and lets just say hes being walked through life. I can always tell when its happening as well, let say I write $180,000 in premium one month, The next month he magically writes $230,000.00 It obvious though, all I have to do is look the account name up in the system and see who was the original producer on it, it always shows my bosses name. It aggravates the hell out me, I cant lie and say it doesn't. It does effect my performance. Its hard to come to work on time, work hard, do your job and watch some half whit fuck that doesn't know the meaning to law cultures show up three days a week, never work a full day and be given great revenue accounts from his mom. Other than this, its a great job.
