    I have been working at Harleysville Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Associates have good hearts and are hard working.

    Cons

    Nationwide is destroying this company!
    Promises made during my heavy recruitment turned out to be false.
    If your career is booming elsewhere and you like the culture, do not come here.
    Benefits, Bonus and 401k are nothing more than a joke post takeover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am watching what was once a strong culture implode. I see a large population of high performing staff members litter the web with their resumes. It's sad because when recruited I wanted to spend my career here now all I want to do is run away because we can't service our customers without appropriate funding levels!

    nice boss, close to home, many have left and returned

    I have been working at Harleysville Group

    Pros

    System constantly being upgraded/enhanced for better performance. UW are friendly for the most part. Supervisors have an open door policy.

    Cons

    Use bogus excuses for not being financially compensated, especially if when hired you were offered a certain $$, then after the probationary period your promoted in title only and told since you came in at a higher rate, there is no $$ increase.... held accountable for errors made from underwriters and/or agents. Training is not all that knowledgable, benefits aren't all that great, morale is low.
