I have been working at Horace Mann (Less than a year)
Everything. Everyone is very nice. You have ability to be promoted very quickly. No one micromanages you. You are kind of left on your own. Having said that, if you need help all you have to do is ask. The process changes are having positive affects company wide. leadership cars. I have literally had the VP of claims come to me outside and ask if I knew of anything we could improve to make my job easier.
I really do not have any cons for HM. I guess I can list the others that people have posted here and let you know my feelings about them. 1. Work Load- I do see a lot of people working late. I don't really understand this. I get the same amount of work as everyone else (plus I am frequently asked to assist others) and I never work late or on days off. 2.Process changes- I can kind of see how this would irritate people (especially those who are shortsighted). I enjoy the change; it is not common to find a company that can identify waste in its process and make over night corrections to increase efficiency. If you have a good idea about making something better; You will be listened to. 3.Technology- The claims system is pretty easy to use. The company is also in the process of changing to a new claims system. It's not rocket science. 4.Upset customers- Answer your phone, check your messages, and return calls. The yelling will stop. The people we talk to pay for us to pick up the phone when it rings... Answer it. 5. "Lack of Care"- Utter nonsense. If you are being treated with lack of care it is because you are a lost cause. In my first week I met the CEO, I shoot the breeze with the some of the most powerful people in the company on a daily basis. These people actually remember your name and know what you have going on. They are always quick to encourage employees. Its not some fake sweet talk to make you feel good. These people genuinely care about you. Lack of training- Once again... It's not rocket science. Training should be maybe 1 week of policy, 2 weeks of liability and 2 days of CWS. You should know by that point if it is for you or not. To sum it up: I think some of the old workers were pushing stuff on others. The CEO has cleaned house. She has placed people in leadership that care and work. I feel like they would not have me do something they have not already done. The new direction of the company is pretty exciting. If you show up, attempt to do your job, and are nice; You will be alright.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing. The changes I have seen in the short time I have been there have made my job even easier and allowed us to better serve claimants and policy holders.
