    Pros

    The company cares about their employees and provides great benefits. There's a lot of tenured employees (+20 years) and I think this speaks volumes.

    Cons

    Hardly any I can think of. Nothing but great memories.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    The management team is very supportive and cares about your career path. There is a great work/life balance, strong employee recognition and room for growth.

    Cons

    I can not come up with any cons other than the commute from my house is kind of far. However I don't mind because I really enjoy what I do.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your employees and offer career pathing. Many of the managers have alot of tenure and this really shows in the workplace.

    Pros

    I've been with Baldwin & Lyons for awhile and have never been happier in a position. Leadership cares about there employees and the company offers a lot of opportunities. It's growing in size and I see improvements everyday. Training program is great and salary is very competitive.

    Cons

    Not many cons I can think of at this time. I would like to receive more money but who wouldn't. The company is fairly traditional but it may be ice if they offered casual Fridays or more opportunities for telecommuting. Really not complaints from my end. Very happy and plan to be here for awhile..

    Advice to Management

    Maybe offering a more formal training program for entry level claims positions for new hire who may be coming right out of college.

    Pros

    You get free gift cards and can win tickets to concerts

    Cons

    There is little to no leadership and no way to advance in your career. They don't pay well

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they deserve, train employees, and create the necessary leadership positions

    Pros

    ?? I guess the fact that the management is too busy in meetings (not listening to their employees' concerns) could be a pro to some people because the management is never around.

    Cons

    Talent is not nurtured You're hired for a low paying job and expected to stay there for 30 years. There is no advancement and barely pay increases. When asked how I could improve after being told I was a very high "meets" on a review, the answer was "you really can't. You're good". There is no training. You're given a general idea of the job and then expected to learn by failing. The bare minimum is okay. Working hard only gets you more work. Working minimally gets you left alone. They're breeding employees that just collect a check. It's sad their processes, systems and ideas are inefficient and outdated. "Because that's how we've always done it" is a too often said phrase and shockingly acceptable one.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees improve and advance. Training!!


  11. Expectations were not unrealistic but opportunities were limited.

    Pros

    Relaxed culture, great work facilities, flexible hours but other than that the company was very disappointing and I would not recommend this company unless really in need of a job..

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities, a lot of political games, horrible pto/benefits and major HR issues ignores which are swept under the rug and office drama!
