    Strong company...Challenging to advance...

    Senior Underwriter (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsProduct knowledge, pension plan, collaboration opportunities...Bonuses for grade level 20 and up are nice.

    ConsLittle to no pay increases and promotions for even top performing employees. Constant shake-ups and changes continue to occur...Not a good place to target for employment at this time...More changes likely to come as company continues to restructure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFight harder to increase employees compensation. Especially when they are top performers...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Once a Fine Company to Work for...

    Claims (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe pay was decent, as were the facilities. Flexible when it comes to working from home. There's always the free coffee too.

    ConsHorrible culture. People are treated like office supplies. Not at all confident that upper management has any idea what they're doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart treating people like... I don't know... PEOPLE!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A&H was a joke.

    Underwriter (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    Pros-Good starting salary (frozen)
    -Big company
    -great PTO
    -ability to write a ton of business and gain experience.

    Cons-I was alarmed with the lack of talent that management has in the A&H division. It will never change, as A&H management is filled with a group of friends that will always be loyal to eachother.. Even when their managers are poor performers.
    -take notice when most of the staff decides to quit.
    -Manager offered no support, and didn't care about his team working weekends.
    - everyone wants out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop investing in salaries for management that do nothing. There are underwriters that are working there butts off and have nothing to show for it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The tasks at hand were mechanical, thus repetitive.

    Underwriter (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsIf you're concerned about status, then titles are pretty neat. Plus, there is a high emphasis on networking, so there's a large allowance for dining.

    ConsRepetitive workflow and lack of interaction with other departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed cross-department collaboration.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Employees run amok

    Account Manager (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsWorked at the Los Angeles P&C location for 10+ years before finally quitting. Benefits were good. Flex time opportunities. I would have liked to stay had the management been fair.

    ConsManagement is really weak and refuses to address problems. Some employees take total advantage of the lackadaisical management oversight. Management discriminates (does not support) against minorities way too often. This happened quite often in my last few years there. The work environment was really unfair and led to so many minority employees grumblings and departures. I finally had enough and quit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat everyone fairly and evenly. Don't discriminate. Many employees want to work and work hard but not if favoritism is rampant.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible human resource practices, what are they thinking???

    Actuarial Assistant (Current Employee) Woodland Hills, CA

    ProsNot too much unpaid overtime, generous PTO, decent retirement plan, nice cubicles and hardware/software is up to date

    ConsFocuses on short term incentives, which means HR/managers will get bonuses based on saving on salaries for new hires, not performance or retention, how stupid and short-sighted can you get?
    Salary has been frozen for a few years, even though the company is supposedly doing very much better in the past few years.
    Did I mention the salary is very low?

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat the employees with respect and you'll get a lot better performance and retention, it will actually save you money on the long run.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
