    Claims Adjuster

    Claims Adjuster (Current Employee) Carmel, IN

    ProsA lot of overtime. Know what to expect in each job. Work autonomous. Diverse group of people. Very little supervision. Good computer systems available to do the job. Good help desk service. Can work at home and job flexibility.

    ConsLow wages. There is a lot of politics in order to move up. Not a friendly atmosphere. High turnover at all levels. Lower level positions are low wages. Top down type management structure. They want employees to give feedback but are not too receptive to criticism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLower level positions need better raises and bonuses. Management needs to be more open to new ideas.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Still Crazy After All These Years

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Carmel, IN

    ProsDepending on what part of the company you're in, or what management team you have, it can be a good place to work.

    ConsHR is screwing everyone as much as possible on benefits, reassessing people's titles and capping pay, onboarding and training are horrible, and the constant mis-management/ reorganization of practically every department makes it impossible to actually get anything done. Onshore? Offshore? Hire? Downsize? It depends on the day of the week.

    Senior management cannot or will not make a decision to save it's life, so middle managers run rampant and get rid of people they don't like or don't want to work with regardless of high performance scores, tenure, knowledge-base etc.

    Most are out to keep their own job at the expense of throwing everyone else off the cliff - can't trust many of your co-workers and the backstabbing/gossip is out of control.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit and let some professionals who know how to manage and who have people skills step in.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
