    I worked at Crum & Forster

    Pros

    The company provides for convenient working hours and also provides fair compensation in terms of annual salary. The company also provides very reasonable benefits

    Cons

    The company lack sufficient employee staff with claims adjusters and has an unreasonable amount of higher level managers. The company also fails to recognize times when assistance is required and/or an employee's needs. Work distribution is overly burdensome work load

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce senior management level employees and provide for more employees at lower levels.

    Pros

    Let's see .... Pay? No. Benefits? No. Mgmt? God No! Outsourcing? There great at that!

    Hey..... They have a nice new Lego Logo!

    Cons

    They've cut, downsized, and outsourced so much for the past 5 years; while at the same hiring more and more AVP's, VP's ... Etc., that it seems like everyone remaining at C&F fears the impending slash from the corporate grim reapers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You could at least give the appearance that you somewhat care about the people that help make your company successful.

    Pros

    I really don't have anything positive to say. They pay you and have flexible hours, but there is little else I positive about the company. It's not the worst company to work for. No one is beating you, although there are a few managers how scream and yell and treat you in a very unprofessional manner. People there like to talk about how the company is owned by Prem Watsa, the "Warren Buffett" of Canada. Big deal, that doesn't make you or your decisions any better.

    Cons

    The company as a whole is simply blah. It's drab. The colors, people and challenges are just drab. It's not the worst place to work for, but the computer systems are outdated, the work level a little too high, managers across the board speak and demand that you follow concepts they read out of some insurance journal, which don't work in the real world and there is just one excuse after another why things won't change. If you are getting out of college or need a job just for a salary, the place is fine, but don't expect to grow as an individual, learn any new concepts, meet any people or advance in any manner.
