    I worked at Amica Mutual full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy working here because of the people. It feels very much a like a family and the company culture is great. They are a promote from within company which is good and bad.

    Cons

    Some of the management styles are too conservative. I sometimes felt like it was too good to be true, like they are trying to put on an act for their training employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to lower level ideas.

    I worked at Amica Mutual

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice little perks like gift cards, etc.

    Cons

    Workers are treated like robots, you are never allowed to talk about the real problems in the company..management does not want to make the problems better..they only want everyone to stay quiet. put up with it, and do their jobs. Total lack of communication from management to the workers who deal with the customers every day. I worked very hard in my 5 years at the company, and never got a promotion. Very dissapointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give promotions and pay raises to workers who earn it. Listen to what the people who deal with the customers have to say...respect them...maybe try to implement changes on things that aren't working, or that cause problems with the workload.

    I have been working at Amica Mutual full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture is great and there are really good opportunities for advancement for those who stay mobile throughout their career. Access to upper management is surprisingly easy and encouraged, which leads to engaged employees. Have always felt like my career goals are supported and encouraged at all levels. This is really a place where you're a part of something and not just a number amongst others. Employees can really make a name for themselves with the way management manages the talent pool.

    Cons

    Some positions can be challenging, but each one has gotten better than the last. The importance of these challenging roles is not unnoticed, and employees are rewarded because of this. Overall, pros really outweigh any cons in my opinion!

    Pros

    Their training program is extensive and thorough. They definitely give you all of the tools needed to start out.
    They are great about hiring individuals with no prior industry experience. Everyone is very helpful and friendly and their benefits are great.

    Cons

    Slow advancement opportunities due to high retention rate, which speaks to how well they take care of their employees. However, if you are looking to move up in a company, it will likely take 10 years to get out of your first roll.
    Work load of Adjusters is a bit excessive.

    I have been working at Amica Mutual full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is founded on good principles and truly does place customer satisfaction above all else. Training is quite extensive and support is offered every step of the way. Claims service is definitely one of the best in the industry and many long-term employees.

    Cons

    Promotions are slow to come and open positions are only posted for certain departments - many positions are filled without allowing interested parties to apply or know that an opening even existed. Often you are expected to basically DO the job of the next higher position before you will be considered for promotion to that position. Technology advancement is horrendous - many systems date back to the 80s or early 90s and have seen little improvement since. New systems are chronically delayed and roll-out deadlines missed by months to years at times. Workloads and expectations vary widely from office to office - someone who is considered a superstar for the amount of work they handle in one office could be terminated in another for handling the same amount of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more transparency with open positions and establish more uniform performance expectations across the company. When it comes to technology development, fill those roles with people who actually possess the qualifications to complete them well and in a timely manner - don't hire based on who best fits the mold of a traditional "business professional".

    I worked at Amica Mutual full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and stability. As a whole, the company tries to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company (certain divisions) is no longer about your ability to do the job, or your overall competency and just boils down to who you know and whether or not your liked by the people who make the decisions. When I first started, I had some of the best managers to guide me, tons of support and I was in euphoria! Few years later, leadership changed - all the individuals I respected moved onto other opportunities and the worst, most inept people I worked with were getting the big promotions. Facts don't matter, just likeability. If you are someone who doesn't want to be really challenged, can brown nose effectively and just want a steady paycheck, this is the right place for you. It's too bad - leadership wasn't always that way!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People do actually discuss the inability to promote the right people - it would do well to know that no one is being fooled.
