    I have been working at OneBeacon full-time

    Pros

    The pay is good, however that is how employees are lured in

    Cons

    Management and leadership is constantly turning over so the direction and vision are always changing. It feels like non-leaders are put in leadership positions so that executive management is not challenged. The front line staff is overall bitter and disengaged. There are constant layoffs that deeply affect morale. Employees are lured in with amazing promises which are immediately broken once a contract is signed.

    Pros

    Flextime available and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Middle management is almost all non-degreed. Their knowledge is limited to what they have learned on the job and there seems to be contempt for those with higher learning or professional designations in their field.

    Upper management seems to have the intellect needed however they seem to be unable to exert order. Middle and upper management seem to be at odds with each other.

    Opportunities for advancement are based on tenure not on merit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don’t know where to start with this one. Middle management is a big part of the problem.

    I have been working at OneBeacon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Vacation, pay, and that is about it

    Cons

    If you're a hard worker then you get rewarded with more work then told over and over that it is not a 40 hour a week job and you are given hints that if you don't work over 40 hours then you may keep your job. They overload you with the work of two people but expect you to continue to provide superior customer service which is impossible with the work load. A home life balance is some kind of foreign word to this company. Simply they just don't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the work load reasonable, the job is stressful enough without telling us over and over this is not a 40 hour a week job and make us feel that if we don't work over 40 hours we will be on warning and potentially lose our job, there are labor laws ------one of these days it will take one brave person to put a stop to this behavior.

    I worked at OneBeacon

    Pros

    Nice People. That's really all i have to say about it. Oh, probably one of the nicer cafeteria's i've seen.

    Cons

    Salary blew, no room for advancement, layoffs, etc. Most prominent was the complete lack of leadership. My bosses would habitually "work from home", ie. taking a day off without having to use one of your vacation tdays.
