    I have been working at California Casualty full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a wonderful company that is dedicated to its customers, employees, and bottom line (in that order). The most important aspect of business at CalCas is to treat the customer (insured) with honesty and respect. Employees are treated like family at California Casualty. An employees' safety is paramount. California Casualty knows and lives the philosophy, "if you take care of others, they will in return, take care of you". It is one thing to hear a company "talk" about putting customers and employees first; it is another thing to experience the words put into action. Existing employees are excited to welcome new hires and offer help at every turn. The work environment feels inclusive and optimistic. I can't say enough great things about California Casualty!

    Cons

    Honestly, none that I can think of.......I've been working here about 5 months so far.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a great job.

    Pros

    This company is awesome. They value their employees and create a great work enviroment. Beau Brown is the fourth generation owner of his family for our company, and one of the greatest CEO's that any organization has ever had. He knows all employees by name and makes everyone feel special and like they are important and they matter. This is a company you would never want to leave, should you be lucky enough to get to work here

    Cons

    There are no cons as this is the company is perfect!

    Advice to Management

    From Executives to Department managers, they are the Best. Everone is caring and will reach out to you whenever you need them. Some of the BEST Management in the business. The only reason career opportunities is rated low {Below}, is because no one ever leaves, we all know how good we have it!

    I have been working at California Casualty full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nearly every employee has met and knows Beau Brown in our Kansas City location. He knows you by name and remembers your contributions. Integrity is job one and with the high responsibility comes a great work culture for customers and employees. Solid company.

    Cons

    Very conservative and growth opportunities can be limited with the such tenured staff.

    Advice to Management

    Break through some of your 100 year old wisdom on the risk for that 20 year old speed and creativity.
