I worked at American Family Insurance as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Work / Life Balance
Compensation and Benefits
Free covered parking lot
A chance to work with pleasant knowledgeable people (if you are lucky)

Cons

An interesting mix of over-regulation and chaos in I/.S. Lack of transparency in decision-making. Lack of competence on all levels aggravated by favoritism.
A chance to work with mean and/or incompetent people (if you are unlucky)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice to Higher Management: Be more direct and honest, open and less hypocritical. Deal with the lack of strategic thinking, incompetence, and favoritism in I/S.

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at American Family Insurance full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Nice 401k match and good amount of sick time and vacation time. Plus flexible work schedule. High compensation for most positions.

    Cons

    Limited healthcare plans and expensive for family plan. It cost me $600 a month. I don't know how someone could afford this with an entry level position. Not much room for advancement outside of Madison, WI

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move more IT positions outside WI. This will allow for more talent acquisition and provide for more redundancy of IT operations.
