What is your favorite aspect of working at Jester?

I feel like I can really make a difference for my clients and the programs we manage. I relish the opportunity to be a strong advocate for them when needed, or sometimes to simply help navigate the often-confusing world of insurance. What I do here is more than just sell insurance, I help solve problems.
