    I worked at Amerisure full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great colleagues and, at least in the office where I worked, a true sense of teamwork. Office facility pleasant.

    Cons

    Too many managers, insufficient clerical support and far too many nitpicky "quality" criteria to meet leaves those in the trenches with little time/ability to do good work and accomplish anything meaningful. Lots of turnover at location where I worked due to poor training and management's ridiculous demands. A few very long term employees, mostly in management but lots of turnover in every other division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-establish local support teams and implement better training. Stop dragging your feet on implementing updated technology. Good employees become disgusted with lack of support yet ever-increasing demands for reports and documentation. Give them decent support, adequate training and pay attention to locations with lots of turnover-- that should indicate there's a serious problem with local management.

    I worked at Amerisure full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are some incredible people at Amerisure. I appreciated the managers who wanted to implement change, who stood up for the right thing, who did not gossip, and who strived to improve the workplace.

    Benefits were fantastic! 401(k) with company match, generous sick leave & PTO, money toward gym memberships/healthy lifestyles, etc. Most departments offered flexibility in the work schedule, as well.

    Cons

    There are also less than stellar people... and many happen to be in management. Leadership of the HR department, in particular, was less than desirable. People in leadership over areas in which they had absolutely no knowledge. Consequently, the department suffered and HR was the leader in high turnover for several years.

    Also, it was as if employees were beating their heads against brick walls when trying to implement change throughout the organization. The leadership was ridiculously stubborn.

    I also did not care for the fact that I worked there for 7 years and never once had an actual conversation with the CEO. He was always unreachable, unapproachable and rarely spoke with employees outside of the executive management team.

    I worked at Amerisure full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company treats its employees well, you generally do not need to worry about your job. Work with some very good people. Some very bright and capable employees VPs/directors (along with incompetent ones). Some very loyal agencies. Well managed financially. Conservative. Safe. Zzzzzzzzzzz.

    Cons

    Extremely slow to change and look for new opportunities. Treats its employees a little too well in many cases; underperforming middle management generally stay in the role they've been in...usually for 25+ years. Many of these folks make your job difficult if you're just coming into the company. Company has brought in a variety of very talented "change agent" types over the past several years (BPMs, Project Managers, marketing, etc...) and they usually get fed up with the culture and split in about 1-3 years after realizing they are not getting the support they need from upper management to really drive that change. Upper management is a mixed bag of very talented leaders and do-nothings who stumbled into the role 20 years ago and somehow have managed to deflect any blame over the years. Agencies are really running the show even though they don't take on the risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are bringing in people to drive positive change within the organization give them the support they need to do their job.

    Exciting in the beginning and tiring to watch the high service level be lost in a culture statement.

    I worked at Amerisure full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The pros were great underwriting flexibility with accountability. Competitve people who enjoyed their work and the best in the business.

    Cons

    Running a great company into a Cult where most of the high performers left and were replaced with B talent. The workload would border on the sweat shop mentality with too much corporate mission statement mentality to justify poor decisions. Watch "The Office" again.......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gain the flexibility and service reputation back. Too much collaboration on a decision that the industry commonly makes quickly.

    reward new ideas and risk takers
    staff keeps their head low to aviod notice
    Old management favorites stiffle growth

    I have been working at Amerisure full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is very good, you get to work with a limited number of agents so you can build a relationship. Employees are great and the team work environment is nice.

    Cons

    During the interview process, which is very long, it is very much a "date". It is definately not what I was sold here. I have 17 years of experience and they dont have any respect for knowledge that you have - you have no credibility and they arent afraid to tell you so once you are in. The company is changing and is very management heavy now. Tons of documetation for management, more and more reports about what you are doing instead of being able to do it. Although pay is good - the workload is borderline insane. Bottom management is inexperienced and has an "us" vs them mentality towards the workers that errodes the office moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have followed in the footsteps of the big carriers and made sure you have more management than bottom level employess to do the work. It is sad, it doesnt have to be this way. Happy employees work harder and your employees are becoming less and less happy.

    Pros

    Here the co-workers and get along with no conflicts, it is a laid back environment, and the managment really cares about you.

    Cons

    Medical benifts are large deductible plan. Company is somewhat small but that just means your efforts are more recognized. Do not conduct business in all states.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think leadership is doing exactly what they should be doing. They are very visible around the field offices and always keep employees up to date.
