    Pros

    I just started this job and is my first "real job" out of college. The base pay is lower than others but the commonly offers great benefits and promise for raises in the future. There is also a clear route to being promoted and classes/training offered to help you pursue these career goals.

    Cons

    The company is pretty conservative with implementing new organizational management. By this, I mean that they just recently started letting people work from home 1 day a week. This carries over to other aspects as well.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees more and empower them to have a more flexible schedule. The new generation seeks these qualities in an employer.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. They promote a team environment and they offer great benefits including paid time off, holidays and yearly bonuses.

    Cons

    The yearly raises are on average from 1% - 4%. if your looking for the small company feel it's not the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as real people. Managing employees and compensating them needs to be done outside the box not within a set parameter but based on skills, ability and dedication.

    Pros

    As long as the founders had the power & control, this was an ideal career. As a Field Auditor, the fact the Home Office was 450 miles away was irrelevant. This was due to the fabulous Home Office Support. The communication between, our department reviewers, the I.T. Dept., Underwriters, etc. made it possible to be successful in the field.

    Cons

    2011 The last family member retired and the company hired a CEO, from outside of the company. I have been living with change, every day of my 19 years with Cincinnati but, after the new leadership took the power & control away from individual departments and put Human Resources in charge of generating reviews and other decisions, I became only a clock number. It is no longer the company I was proud to represent.

    Advice to Management

    They don't want advice, nor would they listen. They are in charge. Period. The remaining Associates, former colleagues have had to conform and find a way to proceed with this new regime and if their close to retirement will probably feel the pressure of being phased out.

    Cons

    The company does not pay well. The job can be really boring. There is little to no opportunity for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    there should be less mundane and redundant checklists. There should be more promotion opportunities. Compensation should be better.

    Pros

    Training program was structural and very informed. You are provided with all the tools to succeed at the company

    Cons

    Poor compensation for type of work performed, underwriting is a very stressful job and management does that realize that

    Advice to Management

    Pay what people are worth. No reason that underwriters should be making less than 40000 per year

    Pros

    Nice building and cafeteria. Plenty of free parking.

    Cons

    Not much training in using their requirements applications for testing their Commercial Insurance applications to test their monthly releases.
    My 6 month contract was not renewed a second time - they were offshoring my position.

    Advice to Management

    Heard that offshoring the testing of their commercial insurance was later canceled and the testing was brought back to Fairfield Ohio.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, old school atmosphere. Good benefits, personal growth opportunities fair. Facility good, effort is being made to be more progressive.

    Cons

    Large, traditional organization, you can get lost in the numbers and politics. Skill and experience doesn't always translate to better positions. it's who you know, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being political.
