I have been working at American Family Insurance full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The people and the flexibility and the benefits are pretty hard to beat. We are generally on the cutting edge of industry trends, technology and practices. Decent commitment to continuing education. The committment to the customers is second to none. I highly value the integrity of the organization, my leadership and those I have worked with.

Cons

Any type of change takes herculean effort, meetings, committees, subcommittees, etc. to make even the most minuscule progress. It can be positively maddening. Though this is well known and there is constant challenge to the organization to figure out a way to become more "nimble", without a major shakeup I don't see much changing as this is a large part of the culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing whaty you're doing. I think we're headed in the right direction.

    I worked at American Family Insurance as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    A Fortune 500 Company that features some of the top talent in the IT field on their Infrastructure Teams, American Family Insurance is considered the foremost employer in Madison, WI and its surrounding areas.

    Cons

    Poor HR management: In May of 2012, quite a few employees were walked-off their jobs without any advance notice and terminations were done on a real-time basis. There were people disabling the accounts of the individuals being terminated while the employees were being terminated. This was all conducted in poor taste. Employees with 2-3 decades of time spent at the company were dishonorably "kicked-out" of their home.
