    Arrowhead is solid

    Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsThe opportunities for Growth at Arrowhead are amazing. The organization is very flat which allows for greater transparency and communication. If you aren't a decision maker you are very close to one. Finally, your time is respected and you aren't asked to give up your personal life for work.

    ConsThe insurance industry is very un-sexy. At this time we're in a very soft market and job security is a concern. Beyond that there isn't too much to complain about. Some people find what they do unfullfilling but that isn't a flaw with the company so much as a mismatch with employer/employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have no major criticisms to share beyond what I've said above. I'm in a solid place right now at Arrowhead and think the company itself is on track even in this hard time.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Underwriter (Former Employee)

    Prosteammates support one another, flexible schedule if you're full-time

    ConsLack of training, lack of dialogue between management and employees, underpaid, minimal opportunity for personal growth, management is too busy

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Could be great, but hasn't been lately

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat Christian people in the Alpharetta office.

    ConsMarket is very tough right now so company is struggling. President won't make necessary changes or any changes for that matter. Headquarters in San Diego not taking full advantage of new Southeast footprint available to them. Benefits are not great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGot to make some real changes in how you attract business. Think SR22s.

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

    Is a good stepping stone company to work at, but not a life long commitment

    Staff Accountant (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsDecent employees and work enviroment. Nice company interaction for moral boosters around Christmas time.

    ConsDoesn't have the best medical plan options available to employees. Upper management needs some work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't always be out to just police your staff at every chance that you get. If your employees live in fear of always getting a pink slip, then they won't produce their best work for you. Listen to your staff more when it comes to suggestions and ideas, it might help with the moral of the department and company. You never know, they might just have some decent insight for you.

    Great Company Growing in the Right Direction

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsCareer path, company loyalty, reputation, excellent management changes in the last year.

    ConsI have not had any negative experiences since new management has taken over and set paths.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep headed in the current direction and share details of future path and growth with all staff.

    Working for AGIA in the second quarter '08

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsA decent company that treats it's employees fairly. Offers a decent benefits package and has decent salaries. The employees are friendly and you feel like you can ask higher management anything if you have questions or concerns.

    ConsSometimes depending on your position there is a real lack for promotion within your department. If you do not have college education backing you a lot of times you really suffer even if you have the knowledge for the job. Currently the insurance industry is a tough one to work for and it seems like everyone is asking each other, "Is today the day that we're going to be laid off too"?

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the actual job that an employee is doing, not just the job title that they are assigned and compensate them for that.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
