    I worked at OneBeacon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very challenging environment (in a good way) these past few years as the company fulfilled its mission to be a specilaty insurance company.

    Cons

    As the company changed its focus, jobs were effected. Numerous RIFs over the years resulting in a major loss of historical knowledge and experience.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more appreciative of those "little people' who got the organization to where it is today.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OneBeacon (Denver, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First a phone interview to go over your resume, and overall goals. She will determine if you get the second phone interview. I didn't think I did well on the first one, so I was surprised / lucky to get the second. The second phone interview will last about an hour, and they will ask you many questions about yourself / experience / OneBeacon. Lastly, you will interview in person. If you do well in that interview, you will be offered the position.
