I have been working at Insurity full-time (Less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
The company is growing fast and has many opportunities for growth; there are a lot of new faces in the 9 months that I have worked here. Compensation is competitive and the benefits are good. This is my first full time job in 20 years having been self-employed previously and I enjoy the flexible hours and paid time off. Also in bad weather most people are allowed to tele-commute.
The interview process can be long and drawn out, but I think I found the right position in the company.
The building is located in the old Colt building in Hartford (The one with the onion dome), it is well lit with high glass ceilings, while my previous contract had me in a dark warehouse so this was a vast improvement. Secure and free parking in Hartford is also a nice perk.
The project I am currently working on has allowed me to learn the various products at a good pace, the new products also use fairly advanced technologies so there is a lot to keep you busy. Overall I enjoy coming into the office and working with my team mates, it’s a very diverse group with some very talented people.
My biggest complaint is the commute into Hartford which has nothing to do with the company, but should be a consideration.
While the building is nice it is in an area that is slowly being built up so while there are a few lunch places and a great food truck, you have to drive if you want something different. In a few years I see this problem going away hopefully.
The company has had some previous struggles which are well documented here on Glassdoor, personally I am not seeing any of this, but it almost made me pass up the interview. I even brought this up during the interview and was very frank with everyone I interviewed with.
The interview process can be a bit long and tedious as you interview with various groups, projects tend to be siloed so it may take multiple interviews to find the correct fit.
Advice to Management
Keep going in the current direction.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Insurity (Hartford, CT).
I was called by a recruiter regarding my resume. I was asked by the recruiter questions regard the overall practices of object-oriented design. Then I was asked where in my work experience I've used those practices. After a day or two I was asked to come in for an in-house interview with one of the Chief Architects Senior Head manager of their Product Engineering team. After interviewing with them about my experience for a little over an hour, they called me back with an offer.

Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
A longtime market leader in providing core processing software and services to the property and casualty insurance market, Insurity entered a new phase in late 2011, as a return to an independent company. The return of the Insurity name (with new hawk logo) marked a resurgence that saw us spread our wings to combine the best of insurance expertise, insurance system processing know-how and modern architecture to the market. It’s a story no one else can tell and no solutions can match.
