    Great place to work!

    ProsThe hours are relaxed and there's a familial nature in the work environment. There's a concerted focus by management on longevity and growth. Markel is a great place to work for insurance professionals as there are multiple opportunities for professional growth and development as well as career advancement.

    ConsThe employee demographics do not lend favorably towards a young ambitious under-30 type. Although co-workers were overly friendly and approachable, it was difficult to develop any real chemistry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a hard look at the corporate age-structure and continue to think in terms of long-run growth. Increase college recruiting efforts.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
