Pros

Huge company, decent benefits, flexible hours available, salary competitive.

Cons

Constant change in guidelines, systems, procedures. Local managers and underwriters are expected to comply with increasingly complex regulations. Computers not used sufficiently to manage the process. HR is all on-line, self-service. Extremely cramped work space. Too much outsourcing overseas, poor quality work results.

Advice to Management

Need to find creative ways to boost employee morale. Layoffs, no annual raises, cramped workstations, and lack of adequate computer support have taken their toll.

    Pros

    Telecommuting option a few days per week, good benefits, capable coworkers

    Cons

    There are too many layers of upper management and bureaucracy. There are not enough social activities to bring employees or departments together. The hiring process is a joke. A consultant still has to jump through hoops just go get hired fulltime and it takes the company years to convert them. The company need to reign back on offshoring IT work that requires more critical thinking skills just to save cost. It does not save cost when a project that's handled offshore ends up taking 2-3x as long to complete because the offshore folks struggle to understand business requirements and can't translate them into quality output.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the hiring process. Don't make a qualified consultant wait years before converting them. Hold more social functions and foster better relation across different departments. Upper management should strive for a more open door policy. Stop sending jobs offshore that require critical thinking/strategic/innovative skills. Not all jobs can be outsourced. This is not a cost cutting measure that will succeed in the long run.

  2. Good start for young people...do not stay long term

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits. OK work-life balance. Flexible work hours. Overall decent company to work for for a while.

    Cons

    No training for new hires. A lot of outsourcing to Asia. To many managers...some brilliant, some know half of what you know. Telecomuting not for everybody. To much favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    No more "good old boys clubs"
