    Pros

    It's a job that gives you benefits experience. Benefits kick in on your first day. It's better than a retail or minimum wage job.

    Cons

    No on site parking. They offer a free Orca pass for public transportation.
    Low starting wage for the amount of workload.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate all of your employees. This company needs to refocus on their core values and work "together" as a team.

    Pros

    Allows you to work from home. Local management is good.

    Cons

    From the claim rep side:
    Company communication is poor. Salary increases are not on a regular basis and they are minimal. Many projects that take time away from doing your job

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees on a consistent basis with yearly increases that are not an insult. Put more emphasis on having offices fully staffed.

    Pros

    My co-workers were hard working and dedicated to the client...to our collective detriment.

    Cons

    Management's continued failure to recognize how out of balance the "quantity to quality" scale is when it comes to the distribution of work and staffing.

    Advice to Management

    Local management must find the courage to address the inadequate staffing issue with senior management, corporate profit margins be damned.

    Pros

    Some poor producers can make a living not selling and have accounts given to them...Tampa Office

    Cons

    Lots of turn over, layoffs. The epitome of cronyism, and nepotism. No direction, no leadership, no management. Tampa Office

    Advice to Management

    People are not inventory! You need to manage and motivate employees.. It's so obvious "it's all about the stockholders. Employees first!!!

    Pros

    It's a job. Salary and benefits are okay. Some of the people are friendly. Can't really think of a whole lot more.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Large broker with small agency mentality. Doesn't live up to the ethics they profess. Nepotism galore. Better be related to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some talent.

    Pros

    dress causal, working hours, nice co workers

    Cons

    Bad company, office politics and they get rid of good employees, don't follow company policies, sweat shop. They overload their employees pending and get into your emails and right you up for lack of keeping your desks caught up when your pending is way to much to handle.

    Advice to Management

    None, they don't care what anyone needs or wants to better the company.

    Pros

    I have only worked there for a year and at first the place seemed upbeat. The group I sat next to have a great manager and supervisor and they are quite happy people. I have no other pros.

    Cons

    Over worked, under paid, very unhappy people which makes for a depressing environment. We moved desks and are grouped with people that are not happy and their boss is not the greatest. Many of the management team are all about numbers and not the detail or completion of the claims. Everything is about the numbers. Also, more than half complain that they have not received a raise in years.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect and give raises. You might keep more talented individuals. Also, look at your supervisors and the areas were morale is very low. You might want to get better leaders. You claim and preach your family oriented and care about your employees but your talk is cheap.

    Pros

    The people were wonderful and dedicated. I made many great friends while working there. The offices were fairly nice.

    Cons

    Training by trial and error. Constantly over claim caps unbeknownst to clients. Non-existent work/life balance. Redundancy of motion was ridiculous with outdated software and a controlling micro-manager for a boss. Raises were 1% if received at all. As motivation, we were told GB only owed us a paycheck, not a raise. This was regardless of the work product delivered. Very, very disheartening.

    Advice to Management

    Please train your upper level branch managers in motivational techniques and proper professional behavior. Upgrade your IT system for the 21st Century. You will incur a mass exodus if not corrected.
