    Pros

    Supportive and friendly co-workers, great benefits. The people who trained me were very patient. Attention to detail was valued and praise was given often.

    Cons

    The work could feel repetitive, and I felt a little out of place as the youngest one in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for providing a great opportunity to me. This is a summer job I wish I could have come back to!

  3. Used to be a great place to work but new management has changed company culture and values completely.

    Pros

    Decent technology, great colleagues (for the most part), office model fostered great communication between claims & underwriting, good performance recognized and rewarded, ability to work remotely, better room for promotion and lateral moves that most other similar companies.

    Cons

    Obvious problems with local management largely ignored by HR and corporate management which leaves problem managers in place, annual bonus distribution left to local management to determine amounts arbitrarily, poor training for new employees, obtaining promotions or transitioning to new positions will likely require relocation to other offices.

    Advice to Management

    New corporate management has changed this company for the worse and I frankly don't see how it can be improved again without revamping/replacing corporate managers. When it is clear that there are problems with local management, stop turning a deaf ear and blind eye-- this sends employees the message that they have to tolerate bad local management or get out, which many have chosen to do. This was particularly evident when long-term corporate management began to retire/leave the company in droves about 3 years ago when it became clear that the company's culture was changing with new management. Now this company, which used to bet better than most, is now no different than any other insurance company.

    Pros

    Amerisure is very focused on employee satisfaction, and they want to retain young talent within the company. Work life balance is very achievable in the company, with flex and remote working programs available. Compensation and benefits are competitive, but probably a little lower than market rates.

    Cons

    Not very focused on internal development and internal transfers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on retaining talent, and the company will be even more competitive in the insurance industry.

  6. It was ok

    Pros

    They offered decent compensation as far as health benefits and paid time off/sick.

    Cons

    Most of the co-workers I worked with in the local office were laid off or being laid off. Clerks were being eliminated and they were going paperless.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in everyday. Compensation and benefits are competitive. Team oriented environment where management seeks employees input on decisions.

    Cons

    I do not have any really negative things to state about this company. The only item to improve is the large amount of meetings mgmt is in.

    Pros

    Likely the best place that I've worked at to date. The work culture is solid - not based on show but on real substance, like good work-life balance, appropriate and consistent feedback, amazing benefits package, and above market compensation. Employees are truly recognized, from their managers to top level C-Suite execs. It's an impressive company that has been around for a very long time but is working hard to keep current. Culture is open to change and emphasizes collaboration. You'll never feel you're in a silo here and everyone is very nice.

    Office has a strong corporate feel but is nicely decorated with a lot of sunlight filtering in. There's a nice cafeteria, outdoor track & basketball hoop, and company events taking place in the gorgeous atrium quite often.

    Cons

    Ratio of tenured employees to newcomers is high to low but there are younger individuals and those that have been working there for a long time are very knowledgeable, collaborative, and nice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Generous PTO right away--no waiting a year for vacation. Sick time also available. Flexible work schedules and other perks.

    Cons

    The pay. Those with no work ethic are allowed to flourish and stick around for years. Poor managers who allow those with no work ethic to stick around, which forces the rest of the team to pick up the slack.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of poor performers.

    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 Management

    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.
